Harmony's standard GL export is compatible with Protractor. 


  • Have posted the payroll you’d like to export from Harmony
  • Have created your account codes/numbers in Protractor

Note: By default, you are not required to use account numbers in Protractor. It is your responsibility to create your GL account numbers in Protractor. Please contact Protractor for more information. Paymate can help you map it to the correct payroll category and/or department in Harmony, but  cannot help you with configuring Protractor.
