Adding attachments to emailed paystubs


We email our employees their pay stubs on a weekly basis and like to add a safety bulletin as an attachment.

For  months I've been "attaching" documents only to find out that it attaches to the first person's email but not the subsequent email addresses.

Can I attach a document to "all" pay stubs or do I have to email each employee's stub separately and make a separate attachment?

Adding attachments to emailed paystubs

It’s nice to see you in the Community, Balancebuilders.

Thanks for being detailed about your concern. I can provide clarifications about adding an attachment to paystubs.

When sending pay stubs with attachments, you’ll have to email them separately for each employee. This is to ensure all your workers receive the safety bulletin.


  1. On the Paycheck page, click the Attach file menu to open the Attachments window.
  2. From there, choose where you saved the attachment and then save it: Computer, Scanner, or Doc Center.
  3. Click Done.
  4. Hit the Printer icon to select Paystub.
  5. In the Select Pay Stubs window, press the Email button and then click OK to continue.
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.

For more insights about the Documents feature, check out the QuickBooks Document Center article. It contains a complete list of transactions and items that allow attachments and answers to frequently asked questions.


Check out this link for future reference. It outlines the instructions on how to send payslips and instructions to fix emailing paystub issues: Email pay stubs from QuickBooks Desktop.

If you have any clarifications or questions, leave a comment below. I’ll get back to answer them for you. Have a great rest of the day.

Are you able to do this same option by sending paystubs through intuit workforce? Every employee gets a detailed list of jobs they are paid for as they are paid piecework.  I would like to be able to send this right through intuit if that's an option.
