How do I setup payroll for CenterPoint?

Paying your employees should be quick and easy. To help with this, you can configure FieldClock to export pay data into a file that’s accepted by CenterPoint.


If you haven’t already, please watch our videos titled “How to create a Payroll Entity” and “How to map payroll codes” linked below to first learn about Payroll Entities, template placeholders and payroll code mapping. This will provide you with the knowledge necessary to successfully configure CenterPoint. 

  • Click the “Software” dropdown and select “CenterPoint” as your payroll software
  • If you’d like to leave non-productive or break payouts out of your payroll export, select “Yes” for the “Omit Non-Productive Payouts” option
  • If you’d like to leave minimum-wage adjustments out of your payroll export, select “Yes” for the “Omit MWA Payouts” option
  • Next, enter your three “Expense Accounts” if necessary… 
  • Template Placeholders, which are listed in blue on the right-hand side of your screen, can be used to map payroll codes to those payroll specific inputs… 
  • For example, if your “Expense Account 1” in CenterPoint is set to Ranch Code, copy and paste the Template Placeholder “{ranch_code}” into the Expense Account 1 input
