Payroll ID at your fingertips 🔢

What's new ✨

We know many of our customers assign Payroll IDs to team members for payroll and identification purposes. 

You can now do more with Payroll IDs by:

🔍 Searching for a team member by Payroll ID on the People tab

📄 Running the Timesheet Report on Report Builder

Payroll ID now automatically populates next to each team member's name. 


You can also add Payroll IDs to other reports in the Report Builder such as the Schedule Report. Simply drag and drop the Payroll ID field from All Fields > Employee.

New API Documentation Launched

What's new ✨

Third-party developer integrations continue to be an integral part of the Deputy ecosystem and providing clear, concise documentation to work with is key to these partnerships and developer success.

With this in mind, we've just launched our brand new API documentation site which can be found here. On the site, you will find a wide array of documentation to help you build an integration with Deputy such as:

  • Help Guides - Use-case-based guides take you through some of the most common integration use cases (such as retrieving timesheets) from A to Z.
  • Specific Industry Guides - Payroll, HR or POS app developer? We've got specific summary pages with the most important info for you to know.
  • Code Walkthroughs - Line-by-line code walkthroughs of some of our most popular endpoints.
  • Every element documented - Every element of the Deputy API system is documented
  • POSTMAN collection - We've released an official Deputy POSTMAN collection for you to download
  • API Reference - A full API reference of each endpoint is available including the ability to connect to the API directly from the documentation.



Why 🤔

This represents the first step in a list of many improvements we are planning to make to make integrating with Deputy even easier.

Documentation is a core cog in the API ecosystem as well. In a recent POSTMAN survey, documentation was just behind reliability, performance and security in importance for what matters most to developers when determining whether to build an integration. We understand that giving you the tools to self-serve during any development is critical to your integration success.

How to use it 🤓

Click here to open the docs. It's globally accessible now so please do have a look.

Got feedback to share? Email our team at apisupport@deputy.com or if you think a document needs updating, you can even suggest an edit directly from within the documentation. Just click this button which is shown on every page

We're super excited to launch these new API docs and other improvements we have in the pipeline. We can't wait to see what you build with them. As always if you have any feedback or need some help, our friendly API support team can be reached at apisupport@deputy.com. If you would like to discuss your Deputy integration with our partner team, they can be reached at partners@deputy.com

Labor model feature has been improved to be more flexible and easily managed in the centralized Business Insights!

Customise how you refer to your team 🤙

What's new ✨

To better reflect the diverse nature of the Deputy community and those who use our product each day, we’ve changed the default for term for “employee” in Deputy to “team member”.  For existing customers we also have the ability for each business to customise this term, so your Deputy account can accurately reflect how you refer to and speak with your team each day. This change will be effective across our web, mobile apps and be visible for all members of your team who use Deputy.


Why 🌟

Deputy’s vision is to create thriving workplaces in every community. This change is about recognising the traditional employee-manager relationship is evolving over time, and may not exist in every business. It's also about reinforcing that a thriving business is built on mutual respect and collaboration between all members of a team, regardless of their role.

How to use it 🤓

All new customers will have the updated "team member" term applied to their account by default. For existing customers or those that would like to update the term to fit their business, we have a setting under Custom Terms in your Business Settings.
