SocialSchedules provides the ability to map data between SocialSchedules timecards and Heartland Payroll. Once mappings are in place the CSV export of timecard data from SocialSchedules can be imported directly into Heartland Payroll.


  1. Premium Plan subscription or higher

  2. Administrator or Manager with 'manage timecards' sub-permission

Timecards -> Export button -> Export to Payroll (Heartland Payroll (CSV))

Create mappings between SocialSchedules and Heartland

Please contact Heartland Payroll Support to obtain the codes which are specific to your Heartland account.

Important: The mapping of Earning Codes is mandatory. The mapping of Division/Location codes and Department codes are optional.

Click 'Create Mapping' to map the following data:

  1. SocialSchedules Schedule to the Heartland Division/Location 

  2. SocialSchedules Position to the Heartland Department Code

  3. SocialSchedules Compliance to the Heartland Earning Codes.

Compliance rules include:

  • Overtime rates

  • Allowances

  • Tips

  • Clock out questions that expect a monetary based answer 

Export CSV file

Once mappings have been created, click 'Export' to generate the Heartland CSV file.

Maintaining mappings

All mappings are saved and will be remembered the next time you perform an export. However, be aware that new data can be created in Heartland Payroll that will need to be mapped. Any data that does not have a mapping will be blank in the export file. It is prudent to check the mappings prior to running an export to ensure all data has been properly mapped.

Perform these steps to import your file into Heartland Payroll.

Choose the following in the 'Time Card Import' screen
