It is a common requirement that payroll reports from any employee attendance or time clock tool can be exported to other programs for further data processing or distribution about the company or to external service providers. Time Clock MTS is able to export all reports to a range of different formats including PDF, HTML, Rich Text (RTF), Excel (XLS and XLSX), comma separated (CSV), plain text, and various direct image formats such as bitmaps, JPEG, and PNG.

Here’s how to export a Time Clock MTS Payroll Report:

  1. Log into Time Clock MTS as the administrator or as the reports user and navigate to the Reporting->Payroll Reports menu.
  2. You’ll then be shown the Payroll Reports Configuration screen (see image at top of this page). Choose your report criteria (employees, departments, shifts, date range or job number) and one of the many payroll reports available in Time Clock MTS.
  3. Once you’re happy with the report selections click the Create Report button. Your report will be created and you’ll see a report something like that shown below:
