How do we delete former employees from the weekly timesheet? Every employee we've ever had shows up and are mixed with current employees

Good evening, @lisaw1.

 

To hide former employees from the list of options, I'd recommend making the employee inactive. This will hide them from your account, while their profile is still listed under Employees. You can always change the status of an employee in your QuickBooks Online account. Here's how you can make an employee inactive:

  1. Go to Workers on the left-hand menu, then Employees.
  2. Under Action, press on the drop-down beside Edit.
  3. Choose Make Inactive.

Once completed, go back to your Weekly Timesheet and see that the former employees are not shown.

 

If you have any other questions or concerns, please reach back out! Have a great day.

The inactive employees still show at the top of teh Weekly timesheet list with an asterics in front of their name, so we have to scroll, and scroll down to get to the active employees.  Is there any way to remove them from this view?

Good afternoon, @ann47

 

Thanks for joining in on this thread and making your first post here. I appreciate you asking your question about the order your timesheets are in. 

 

At this time, the only way to change the order without the inactive employees on there is by clicking the "Name" header. You can send feedback to our Product Developers so that they can consider this in the upcoming releases. They take the time to review every request and try to add them to the next available update. 

 

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. I'm only a few clicks away. Have a great day!

It's good to see you here in the Community, @Melissa518.

 

At this time, there isn't an option to remove former employees from the drop-down list when creating a single or weekly timesheet. Even if the employees are marked as inactive or deleted, they still show from the drop-down.

 

I know how you wanted to remove former employees from the drop-down list. For now, I encourage you to submit feedback directly to our product engineers. They may look into this suggestion and consider adding the option in the future update. To send feedback, you can go to the Gear icon and select Feedback. Then, enter your suggestion and click Submit.
