Re: How do i change an innactive employee to active?

It's nice to have you here in the Community, @nicole14.


I'd be happy to walk you through in activating your inactive employees in QuickBooks Online.


Activating an inactive employee can be done in a few clicks.


Here's how:

  1. Click the Workers tab from the left navigation bar.
  2. Make sure Employees is selected at the top of the page.
  3. Choose the drop-down list showing Active employees, select All employees.
  4. Click the inactive employee.
  5. Select the small pencil icon in the Employment section.
  6. In the Status drop-down, click Active.
  7. Click Done.

For more information about changing an employees status in QuickBooks Online, you may refer to this article: Add, edit, or inactivate an employee.


If you need further assistance with this, you may also reach out to our Customer Care Team


The employee will now be active once again and you're all set.
