How can I automatically track miles as I am driving to work? Isn't there an app?

Hello there, carolineisabelle.

 

QuickBooks Self-Employed gives you the option to use your mobile app where you can track mileage automatically while you're driving to work. All you have to do is turn on the mileage tracking and take your mobile device with you. Here's how to do it:
 

  1. Open the QuickBooks Self-Employed mobile app.
  2. Click the Menu ☰ icon.
  3. From the Mileage menu, select and turn on Auto-tracking.

 

Once done, you’ll need to authorize the app to use location services. If you're using Android, select Allow, then Allow all the time. On the other hand, follow the steps below to do it on Apple devices:

 

  1. Select Allow Once.
  2. Then, open Settings on your device.
  3. Click Privacy. Then, Location Services.
  4. Find and tap the QuickBooks Self-Employed app.
  5. Select Always.

 

That will do. For more details, please consider checking this article: Automatically track mileage in QuickBooks Self-Employed. Also, you can learn about fixing mileage tracking issues here

 

Please let me know if you have other concerns. I'll be around to back you up. Just post your questions below. Take care always and have a good one!

Hi carolineisabelle,


Hope you’re doing great. I wanted to see how everything is going about the automatic tracking mileage in QBSE. Was it resolved? Do you need any additional help or clarification? If you do, just let me know. I’d be happy to help you at anytime.


Looking forward to your reply. Have a pleasant day ahead!
