Planday can help you keep an overview through its reporting functionality on the following topics:
1. Overview of hours in the schedule
While working on the schedule, you have a few views and reports near at hand:
Below each day in the schedule you´ll find a summary of hours and labour costs for the current day, based on the individual wages and salaries entered in Planday.
To the far left of this, you´ll find a summary of hours and labour costs for the current period you´re viewing.
You can use the filter to only include certain groups, positions, shift types, employees etc. When a filter is applied, the total hours and labour costs will reflect your selection.
You can Export this schedule information as a PDF report or as a .csv report under Tools > Print schedule / Tools > Export schedule CSV
2. Employee data reports
Whether you need an overview of the changes in your staff for an annual report or for regular bookkeeping, Planday's got you covered.
Under People > Employees > Tools, you will find the options to:
2A. Use pre-made reports or export them for your Integration
Create report, which allows you to choose and fine-tune what the report should contain. Pre-made reports give you the opportunity to export employee data or employee changes to get an overview of newly added or deactivated users and so on. If you are using an integration such as Visma Løn, or Proløn, you can also create a report in a file format that is compatible with those integrations.
2B. Create a custom report
If you need a mix of information, you can choose to create and format your own report from the upper right corner, through Create report. This will not affect the data stored in Planday, but only gives you full control over which data to gather in one report.
2C. Uploaded Documents Overview
Under People > Tools > Document Overview, which provides a straightforward overview of which documents are uploaded on your employees' user profiles, for the selected employees. Depending on the Document type you choose to include, the report will also contain the date when the documents are set to expire, where applicable.
3. Leave and Overtime reports
To keep on top of your business efficiency and staff needs, you need a clear overview of availability even when your employees are on holiday or claim leave from work.
From Schedule > Leave requests (or Absence requests) > Export you can extract a leave report or a TOIL/Overtime report.
3A. Leave report / Absence report
Leave report contains the absence records available from your Planday portal, in an Excel file, within the selected date range. Before exporting, you can choose what leave data to include, filtering by the leave request status, leave account or filter by Department.
3B. Time off in lieu report / Overtime report
Overtime report is similar to leave report. The Excel file contains all the overtime data (banked hours/flex/TOIL) recorded on your portal, for the selected date range, departments and employees.
4. Contracted hours report
If you are using Planday’s Contracted hours functionality, you can get an overview of your employees' actual worked hours versus their contracted hours.
You can view and export this data from Schedule > Contracted hours > Export data

5B. See a daily or weekly Punch Clock entries report
From Schedule > Punch Clock you can see and export an overview of recorded entries per day or week.
Press the printer icon, on the left side 🖨, to export the current report as a PDF or Excel file.

6. Payroll export report
Under Payroll > Payroll Export you'll find everything you need to pull payroll reports for worked hours, wages, monthly salaries, and supplements. Select All employees or filter your selection to include a custom selection by applying a combination of filters.
You can export the Payroll report as a PDF, CSV or Excel file. In addition to these file formats, you can also export a file that can be used by a Payroll integration platform be used for any of a report for any of your integrated payroll modules such as Sage, or Danløn if you have these modules added to your portal.

7. Customising your reports
All reports under the Reports tab + the PDF report under Payroll export are pre-defined and cannot be changed.
Payroll export > formats Excel / .csv - you can change the format from Settings > Payroll > Prints (see below). Through Create you can add an information field to the report, choose for example “First name” from the dropdown of available fields and sort the output by using Sort order (add a low number to show the field early in the report, add a higher number to show it later.)
