How do I setup payroll for The Farmer's Office?

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 The Farmer’s Office.

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 The Farmer’s Office.

  • Click the “Software” dropdown and select “The Farmer’s Office” as your payroll software.
  • You’ll notice payroll specific inputs appear, such as “Crew ID Template” and “Cost Center ID Template”.
  • 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 “Cost Center ID” in The Farmer’s Office is set to Ranch Code, copy and paste the Template Placeholder “{ranch_code}” into the Cost Center ID input.
  • The same can be done for the other inputs, such as “Job ID” and “Grower ID”, but are not required… for instance, if you don’t use a “Grower ID”, leave that input blank.
  • If you’d like to leave hourly rates out of your payroll export, select “Yes” for the “Omit Hourly Rates” option.
  • 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.
