Excel import refers to the ability to import data from an Excel sheet into payroll software. The feature allows employers to transfer large amounts of data, such as employee information or payroll data, quickly and easily, without having to manually enter the data into the software.
The Excel Import page in the greytHR Admin portal allows you to upload data in bulk using various Excel sheets. You can upload various information such as employee information, holiday list, arrears details, IT declaration, final settlement details, and bulk salary overrides using the Excel Import feature. The page displays a list of Excels you have already imported in the past. Along with the name of the Excel file, the page shares information such as importer Type, Status, and Import Log.
To view the Excel Import page, click Employee > Admin > Excel Import.
