To access this utility, go to File > Import/ Export Data > Import Subcontractors from a CSV File.
1) Browse to the location of your Subcontractor CSV File
2) Select the required file and click 'Open'
3) Your subcontractor information will be displayed on screen. For each column, choose the subcontractor data it represents. Ignore any columns and uncheck any rows you do not wish to be imported
To assist with column selection, under 'Options', simply select 'Try and Match Columns to CSV Header Row Titles'. BrightPay will try and match as many columns as it can for you.
Please note: should you have subcontractor CSV files to import for more than one company e.g. you are moving a number of companies across from a previous software, simply instruct BrightPay to 'Remember Column Selections' under the 'Options' menu. BrightPay will subsequently remember the column selection used in the previous import when next importing a new subcontractor CSV file.
Alternatively, should you wish to reset your column selection, select 'Reset All Columns'.
4) Click Import to complete the import of your employee information.
