Point-in-Time Headcount Administration

The Point-in-Time Headcount feature enables administrators to retrieve and view employee records on any specified date. By default, all active employee records for the specified date are exported to a .csv file in comma delimited or pipe delimited format. Inactive employees may be included in the export if desired. The employee’s status will be based on the selected date.

Users with the appropriate permission can create, re-run, and download a headcount report.

To access the Point-in-Time Headcount page, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Point-in-time headcount.

Create Export

Use the Create Export button to export headcount details to a .csv file. If the records exceed 1 million rows, the files are separated into multiple files.

Note: If this is the very first export, the Point-in-Time Headcount page appears empty with only the Create Export button visible.

To export headcount details, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Create Export button. The Create Export fly-out opens.

  1. In the Date of Employee Records field, select the appropriate date from which you want to view employee record data. No records will be returned for dates prior to when the effective date was turned on.
  2. In the Employee Status field, select the type of employees to include in the export. Options are:
    • Active Employees Only - Click to export only active employees.
    • Active and Inactive Employees - Click to export active and inactive employees.

    • CSV - Comma Delimited - Data is separated by a comma.
    • CSV - Pipe Delimited - Data is separated by a pipe ( | ).
  4. Click the Create button. When the export is done, the Job Status changes to Complete and the Re-Run and Download options appear.
