How do I map a payment file?

Mapping a payment file helps the Instant system know what columns on your Excel Sheet correspond to what fields in Instant

When you upload your pay file for the first time in the Instant Back Office, or any other time when the format changes, you will need to map your Instant pay file.  This tells the Instant system which columns on your file contain what data. 

To map your pay file, follow the instructions on the screen and click the box/column that matches the description.  

  • Employee ID
  • Location ID (required for all files)
  • Full Employee Name (hit 'Skip and Map Next Column' if your pay file contains both first name & last name separately)
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Net Payment Amount (you may have to scroll right on the screen to see the column)
