Adding the Payroll Item field for an employee

If the Payroll Item field doesn't appear for certain employees, it means that you did not set up QuickBooks to use timesheet data when you write paychecks to those employees. The first time you enter an employee's name on a time entry form, QuickBooks asks you if you want to use timesheet data when you pay the employee. If you answer Yes, you'll always see the Payroll Item field when you enter the employee' s hours. If you answer No, the Payroll Item field does not appear.

To add the Payroll Item field for an employee

  1. Click the Employees icon.

  2. Double-click the employee's name.

  3. Click the Change tabs drop-down list and choose Payroll and Compensation Info.

  4. Select the Use time data to create paychecks checkbox.

  5. Click OK.

If the Payroll Item field never appears, it probably means that payroll is off. You can turn payroll on again.
