While using eTime Xpress, at many points you may have the need to save a file to your computer. For example, this could be when saving a report as a PDF, doing a payroll export, or exporting a master table. In all cases you need to tell eTime the name and location of the file.
(These instructions also apply when you need to import data into eTime.)
Note: all the screenshots below are from a Windows PC. If you use a Mac the dialog boxes will be different, but overall the steps will be similar.
Specifying the File Location to Save
Next to the box where you would enter the filename you will usually find a yellow folder icon. Press it.
You will get this message. Don't worry about it, this is normal. Just press OK.
On the next sequence of dialog boxes, press This PC.
Then select the drive where you want to save your file, either on your computer or on the network.
On a network drive, navigate the folders as usual, then press Open to save the file location that will be used for the export.
On you local PC drive, navigate the folders to get to your user area. Select the drive, then select User, then select your username, and finally select the folder you want.
Type the filename you want and them press Open. Note that in general you want to add .csv after the filename.
Saving a report to a PDF
You run the report and get a preview. Then you use the Print Options menu to select your printer. Use the Microsoft PDF option and press OK. You will get a file selection dialog box.
Select Microsoft Print to PDF (or another virtual printer) and press OK.
Follow the dialogs as usual, and press Save.
