Updating your hourly rate is quick and easy, @laura-m-farmer7-.
You can edit the hourly rate by going to the Time menu. From there you can change and enter the new hourly rate so you don't have to retroactively change it after every time.
Also, please know that the Time feature in QBSE is currently in beta, the estimated time as to when improvements will be added aren't available yet. Rest assured, our product developers are working to have these improvements rolled out as soon as possible.
I've included some resources that you can visit about some How to do I questions in QBSE for your future reference:
Please know you can continue to reach me here with any additional questions. Thanks for coming to the Community, wishing you continued success, @laura-m-farmer7-.
Thank you for your reply.
In the Time menu, the only Edit I see is for each individual time entry which only allows me to update the rate after the fact. I've attached a screen grab.
I have an alternative way to get your hourly rate up to date in no time @Laura.
I'd want to share some details on Time beta project management in QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE).
QBSE only allows you to adjust the hourly wage for your entries. At this point, editing the rate in the entire project in the Time function is currently unavailable.
To get your work done, you may consider creating a duplicate project. This way, you can add a new rate and use it for your upcoming entries.
Feel free to visit our QBSE Help Articles. This page contains information and steps on how to handle your mileage, taxes, reports, banking, and account management.
Please know that you're always welcome to reply if you still have other questions about Time entries. I'll be around for you. Take care, and have a great day ahead, Laura.
Thank you for your reply. That unfortunately doesn't work for me as for some reason, I can't see any project titles from the project dropdown. Please see attachment. I just happen to know that the field under the grey area is the project I need to select. If there is a way to clear all of the projects in the menu, this option you provided may work?
I appreciate you for sharing an update with us, Laura.
I've got some troubleshooting steps to help you isolate and fix this issue.
Let's access your QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE) account in a private or incognito window. Then, update your hourly rate from there. This way, we can verify if this is a browser's cache issue.
Browser cache helps load web pages faster the next time you visit a site. However, too much of it causes latency that affects the performance of your accounts. Using a private window helps us verify the issue as this doesn't store any data files.
To open a private window, you can refer to these keyboard shortcuts:
If you’re able to seamlessly update your hourly rate, I’d propose deleting your regular browser's cache to refresh the system. If the issue remains, I suggest using other supported browsers. This way, we can see and check if this is a browser-specific issue.
I've also added this article that can efficiently guide you with your year-end tasks: QuickBooks Self-Employed annual tax guide.
If ever you have other queries or questions about entering your time in QBSE, please let me know in your response. I'll be here ready to back you up!
Hello there. Even in incognito I am unable to see the project dropdown menu to access the project. Within the project is the only way I can access an Edit button to change the hourly rate.
Thanks for giving that a try, laura-m-farmer7-.
