Upgrade your account

Projects lets you set up time estimates to track the progress made on a project. You can break your estimates down by individual tasks, or keep it simple with total hours. You can also see live updates, like note and clock ins/outs, for each active project in the activity feed.

Note: Existing timesheets won't be transferred into any new projects you create. This feature will only apply to time moving forward. Set up your jobs or customers as normal, and then use the projects feature to set up any active projects your team will be working on.


Geofencing alleviates time spent editing and correcting timesheets. Physical addresses added to your jobs and customers will let team members receive notifications from QuickBooks Workforce to clock in or out based on when they entered or left the job site.

Timesheet Signatures

Timesheet signatures turns on a signature box on each timesheet for employees to sign as they clock out. The signatures are viewable in time entries and certain reports by an admin or manager.
