Push/Sync Sales Data

  1. Under Push Sales Data to Deputy, select the dates of the sales data that you wish to push to Deputy. The period must not exceed one month (31 days).
  2. Click Start.


3. If you have sales data from more than one month, repeat the above steps for each month.
4. Under Push Sales Data to Deputy click ON  

Note: If you have not pushed sales data to Deputy previously, this procedure will push data from the past 7 days. If you include the last 7 days in your initial manual push, this should not duplicate the data.

Then, it will push sales data at every subsequent hour (at 12:59pm, 1:59pm, 2:59pm, etc.)

If you turn OFF the sales data push and then turn it on at a later stage, it will resume from where it was turned off (i.e. it fills in the gap so you lose no data).

5. Under Pull Total Timesheet Cost from Deputy (Daily), click ON. This will update the Labour Cost Report in Abacus.

Note: This will pull timesheet costs from Deputy every day at 23:59.

You will be able to see your sales activity from Abacus in Deputy's Schedule vs Timesheet vs Sales report in Deputy.
