Functional overview

With this new feature, you can synchronize the hours worked in Clockodo by your employees under “Payroll Accounting” > “All employees” for each individual month. The number of hours is transferred directly from Clockodo to payroll.



Requirements for the synchronization

To ensure the successful synchronization of hours, payslips for the corresponding month must still be open and the employee and company data from bexio must match the data from Clockodo.

You can activate integration with Clockodo in Company under “Master data” > “Other“ and must also provide some information:


  • API-Key: You can find the API key in your Clockodo account by accessing “My data” at the top right above your name and scrolling to the bottom of the page.

The assignment of hours is based on the email address. For this reason, your employees must have the same email address stored for logging in, recording the hours in Clockodo, as well as on the employee profile in payroll accounting. You can find this information as follows:

The times are always assigned directly to an employee. You can find the stored email address in the “Team” menu when you click on an employee:

Payroll accounting:
You will find the email address on the employee profile under “Personal data”
