Fields & buttons

  • Preview Selected. Click this button to display a report preview of the data that will be included in the currently selected files.

  • Create Back Payroll Files. (Payroll tab only) Click this button to create any client's payroll files that were not previously created. Select the appropriate client name and date in the Create Back Payroll Files dialog, and the application will find payrolls that were run after the specified date that have not yet been processed in an XactPAY file, and then create the file so it can be sent to The Hartford. This is useful, for example, if you signed up to use XactPAY and performed a payroll run prior to retrieving the consent file.

    Notes

    • The Create Back Payroll Files button is enabled only after the setup file has been sent and the first payroll file has been generated.
    • The application will create back payroll files only if the Period Begin date, Period End date, and Payroll Check date are all within the active consent file date range.
  • Retrieve. Click this button to retrieve new consent files.
  • Process Files. When you are ready to process your files, select the appropriate files to process and then click the Process Files button. The files will be created, transmitted electronically, and moved to the Manage Workers' Compensation Files dialog.
