Formatting your data

The file uploader helps your team ensure that your data set is fully populated and correctly formatted. It does this by: 

Column mapping

Once you have selected your file, the uploader will display a preview of the data. 

If the columns in your file exactly match the names under "Required column", the system will match them automatically. 

If the column names differ, you will be prompted by the uploader to match them. 

Select the appropriate match from the dropdown for each column. Please note that all fields with a red asterisk next to them must be mapped to a column in your file.

Completing data corrections

If your data set contains formatting issues or is missing some data, the uploader will identify them and prompt you to adjust them so they are correct.

Late deductions

Please notify the Benepass team if you have uploaded late deductions.

The uploader will allow you to upload deductions for a pay date in the past, but will display a warning and prompt to your team to contact admin support. 

Late deductions are not run automatically out of safety to ensure employees do not receive accidental duplicate contributions.
