This is an overview of what Sales Reps are in QuickBooks and how to use them.
Your business may need to track the income associated with people who have a relationship with your business. These people may or may not be employees. For example, you might track income from a partner in a law firm or a 1099 vendor who is an independent contractor.
QuickBooks has a Sales Rep List that allows you to specify employees, vendors, or "other names" as sales reps. Each sales rep is assigned initials. The names and initials appear on the Rep drop-down list on sales forms, allowing you to associate specific sales reps with specific sales so you can track their income.
