QuickBooks Online offers the ability to add a time tracking only user. This allows users who need to, to log into QuickBooks Online and enter their time. They can either use a single activity, or a weekly time sheet view. This is how to use QuickBooks Online for time tracking.
QuickBooks Online has a mobile app, but the mobile app does not allow for time entry. You must log into QuickBooks Online via browser in order to enter your time.
While we’re looking at how to use Quickbooks Online for time tracking, we should take a look at how using BillQuick Online makes this process even better.
Workflow is one of the main reasons why QuickBooks Users need BillQuick.
Here are 3 features that BillQuick Online offers to make time tracking
- Mobile app
- Clock in and out
- Workflow – submit and approval process
With BillQuick Online, you can enter time via the mobile app, or by logging into your browser.
The mobile app is the key, because your employees can clock in from anywhere, run a timer, and clock out. This makes for much more accurate time tracking as opposed to trying to remember your time, and filling out a weekly timesheet at the end of the week or pay period.
You can also run a timer in the browser version, so that you can clock in and out from there as well.
BillQuick Online, like BillQuick Desktop, also has workflow features. The mobile app will indicate whether the time was submitted, or not. You can submit individual time entries, which makes it much easier to manage. I have clients who want to submit all of their time on a particular job, because that job is completed, and they want to bill the customer asap. This allows the flexibility to do that.
Users can submit time to a project manager, or anyone they choose to review it. You can set this right in the mobile app settings, or when you submit in the browser.
Once time is submitted, the project manager can review and approve it. Once approved, the time can billed to a client, and you can process the time to pay the vendor.
