Data Flow

Basic Steps

Regardless of whether you're doing billing or payroll, the basic steps are:

  • Update and confirm schedules. Work through Travel Time and Other Expenses if appropriate. Then run an Unconfirmed Shifts Report.
  • Create Timesheets
  • Edit Timesheets if required.
  • Review a billing or payroll report.
  • Correct errors in Schedules and create Timesheets again. Repeat until the report is perfect.
  • Send the data elsewhere: QuickBooks, a third party payroll system, a CMS1500/837p, a State EVV system, and so on.
  • Process the information in other software.

Review these steps in more detail with Billing and Payroll in Detail.
