    Import Customer Formats

    CS Time Generic Format

    The CS Time Generic Import Format is a CSV (Comma Separated) format where each line represents separate customer information.

    The main advantage of CS Time Generic Format is that it can also be used to import other information other than clockings. The first field on each row identifies the type of record being imported. For example C is for clockings, L is for leave, R is for Rostering and so on.
