What is a timesheet?
A weekly timesheet shows the time spent by one person doing any number of
activities for any number of jobs within a seven-day period. Use a weekly
timesheet when you want to record work done on several days or on several jobs.
Anything you previously entered as a single activity entry for this week
automatically appears on a person's timesheet. The timesheet can only
display one week at a time, but you can easily view the hours entered for other
Note: You must turn on time tracking to fill in a timesheet.
If there is existing time data for this person for this week, QuickBooks
displays it (unless you've selected multiple names). You can edit the entries.
Important: If the employee earns overtime, make sure you set up the
employee's earnings items correctly in the employee record. Otherwise,
the overtime rate might not calculate correctly on paychecks.
If not, make sure the checkbox
is not checked.
Note: The symbol in this column means the time has already been billed on a previous invoice.
