Assignar – Xero: FAQs



How does the Integration work?



Through the 5.5 Integration, payrolls/time sheets from Assignar can be seamlessly synchronised with your Xero accounting file. Each day the integration will synchronise and populate your Xero file with the most recent payroll data.


What data from Assignar can be integrated into Xero?



Our integration syncs all approved employee time sheets to Xero. This included the hours worked as well as the pay rate for those hours.


How do you sync with Xero?



The integration will sync Assignar to Xero automatically. We connect your Assignar account with Xero, then set the sync time to run either daily or on the morning that your active Xero payroll calendar is set to end.


How do I set up an integration?



The 5.5 integration is an assisted integration. Currently we do not permit users to setup their own integration due to the large number of configuration settings available. A 5.5 integration consultant will work with you to determine your specific requirements and configure your integration accordingly. During this process the integrations team will also ensure that data is correctly synchronising with your Xero file.


Can I change my integration settings after the initial setup is complete?



Yes, if your requirements change and you would like to change the configuration of the integration you can simply contact support via techsupport@5andhalf.com.


What happens if a mistake is made in Assignar and incorrect data is syncronised to my Xero file?



  •  If time sheets are being synced daily, then you simply amend the data in Assignar and it will be integrated correctly the next day.
  • If data is synced incorrectly on the day, you’re meant to process the payroll then edit the time sheets in Xero.
  • The data is synced to Xero as a Draft Timesheet that is subject to approval by the payroll administrator so timesheet edits can be made in a crunch.


What support does the integration offer?



5.5 Degrees offers phone, email, and service desk support
