When Dynamics GP users are looking at a way to automate some of their payroll processes, they often look at implementing a time entry or time card system that will produce an electronic file that can be used for import. Some of the time entry software has its own built-in import functionality with Dynamics GP, but the software companies that provide this functionality are in the minority and may not always be a fit for an end-user due to cost or features. Because there are a variety of ways to import time entry information into Dynamics, we recommend that customers focus on the features of the time entry software, and not on whether there is already a pre-built import to Dynamics.
