Different Start day of week for different time sheets

Hi All,


can't find a way of doing except for ALL time sheets - I'm Using Advanced Payroll

What I have is

Group 1 Employees who work for a client and their week begins on a Saturday and runs to Friday.  the client pays on this basis.

Group 2 employees work for a different client and their week begins on a Monday and runs to Sunday, the client also pays on this basis.


I can see that I could change to use Single-Time activity billable to customer, but I'm not certain that this will change the timesheet that my employee sees and fills in. Also not sure that it won't change ALL timesheets to start on a Monday, which means that all Group 1 employees then have a problem as their working week doesn't match the clients.


Any help gratefully appreciated


Kindest regards

Different Start day of week for different time sheets

Hello RoscoPC, 


Welcome to the Community page, 


Quickbooks advanced payroll timesheets default to the same starting date so can only run one in it. 


You could look at TSheets who have Quickbooks integration they might offer this that you need.

Really, so I know  can deal with this, but I should be able to show the same details on the portal as they will see on my clients' timesheet systems. As I said some run Monday to Saturday and others run Saturday to Friday. I'm happy I might have to put them in different pay runs, as I can see that might be an issue, but from a coding point of view I can't see it being that much of an issue. the system is modular enough to understand. Alternatively I guess I might have to write my own.  Can I join your development stream too and get any available  SDK?


I design systems for a living for large financial institutions, so I know it could be done and I could design it for you. Can this also be raised as a change to the development team?


 Kindest regards
