How can we help?

Integrate with Dolce

Dolce is a labor management solution helping streamline your workflows. Features include a POS system with scheduling and timekeeping, tips distribution, franchise and mobile support, labor compliance, and more.

Gusto integrates with Dolce to streamline the payroll process by syncing pay-data from Dolce to Gusto. Information that syncs:

  • Employee full name

  • Department

  • Role/Job

  • Pay rate

  • Regular, overtime, and double overtime hours

  • Pay period

Customers who join Gusto from Dolce will receive Gusto free for their first 3 months.

Troubleshoot warning messages

Employee information automatically syncs every 6 hours–if a change in one system is made and has yet to be captured in the other, you may need to manually update information.

  • Employees not Mapped to Payroll Provider
    • Go back to Payroll Mappings, click the button under Gusto Payroll, then scroll to the bottom of the page. 
      • If the employee is active in both Gusto and Dolce, click Complete Employee Mapping.
      • If the employee’s name is misspelled, you may have to manually match the users. Click the names in the respective columns to match them, then click Complete Employee Mapping.
      • If the employee is not active in Gusto yet, you must complete the onboarding in Gusto before the payroll details can be pushed.
  • Missing Employee Payroll Wages
    • The message will show what wage or role is missing a wage rate. Enter the wage rate in Dolce, rerun the preview (report), and then push to Gusto.
