Use the integration

  • Make sure all employees in ADP that need to track time are added in TSheets:
    • My Team > Add > enter the required fields to match ADP.
    • Once all employees are added, in the Team Member Details for each employee, add the employee’s ADP File ID to the Payroll ID field in TSheets to “link” the profiles. This should be 6 digits, including leading zeros.
      • For Multi-Company Access accounts, include the ADP Company Code in each Payroll ID field in TSheets. Format as CCC:NNNNNN, where CCC = company code, and NNNNNN = the employee File ID.
    • Note: Employees can be added and updated using a .csv file upload to save some time. See Importing and Updating Team Members via CSV Spreadsheet.
  • After the initial integration is completed and existing employees are linked, the following actions in ADP will automatically sync into TSheets within 2 minutes:
    • An edit to an employee’s First name, Last name, and/or work email.
    • A newly hired employee will create a new user in TSheets.
    • A terminated employee will archive the user in TSheets.
      • Note: an employee can be archived in TSheets without affecting the employee in ADP.

There are two different ways to export timesheets to ADP Workforce Now: flat file or direct export. Both import as Batch Payroll:

  • Flat File Export: Exports Regular hours, Overtime, Doubletime, and Time Off.
  • Direct export: Exports Regular hours, Overtime, and Doubletime.

Flat File Export:

The Flat File must be added to your account by a TSheets support representative. If you don’t have it already, contact us. Be prepared with your ADP Company Code. Once it is added, you can export your flat file:

  • In TSheets
    • Go to Approvals > Run Report for the date range you want to approve (any date range can be selected) > Approve Time.
    • Go to Reports > Payroll Report > Run Report for the same date range you approved.
    • Select Report Exports at the top > choose the Excel file download under ADP Workforce Now Export.
  • In ADP Workforce Now:
    • Upload the file into ADP
    • Time can be adjusted here but will not reflect in TSheets.

Direct Export:

  • In TSheets:
    • Go to Approvals > Run Report for the date range you want to approve (any date range can be selected) > Approve Time.
    • In the Approvals report, select ADP Export Approved Time and confirm the export. A success window will display once the export is complete.
  • In ADP Workforce Now:
    • Go to Process > Payroll > Paydata.
    • The newest batch of time will display at the bottom of the displayed list.
    • Select the batch to view time details. Time can be adjusted here but will not reflect in TSheets.
