Is there a way to have an employee's time added to an invoice automatically?

Good day!

 

Is there a way to have an employee's time added to an invoice automatically?

I spent an hour with QB support and have searched online as well and the only solution was to manually enter the information from a report. I would be surprised and very disappointed if there is not a way to automate this process.

Hey @LAAttorney,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

Have you been tracking your employees' time in the Weekly Timesheet? Once you set up and enter everything into the Time Sheet, the billable hours will show up automatically at the end of the month. I'll embed a short video below.

 

Also, have you checked out the Projects Center feature? It can track hours alongside invoices for specific clients! Hope this helps.

Yes once time sheets are entered, billable hours show up ONLY IN REPORTS

We want the billable hours to automatically ADD TO INVOICES USING CLASS so that we can track employee time on jobs plus auto-add that time to invoicing!

Hello, WH.


Thanks for reaching out to us. I’m here to share some information about adding employee time to invoice in QuickBooks Online.


The option to automatically add billable hours to invoices using class isn’t yet available. I’d suggest sending us your insight and opinion by clicking the Gear icon and selecting Feedback


In the meantime, what you can do is enter billable hours, assign customer job and class to invoice the employee. Here’s how: 
1.    Click the Plus (+) icon and select Weekly Timesheet.
2.    Select an employee and period date.
3.    On the Details section, enter necessary information like Customer job, Class, service worked on, description and many more. 
4.    Mark it billable and enter rate per hour.
5.    Enter the hours per day.
6.    Select Save and close.


Once done, you can start invoicing the employee by following the steps below:
1.    Click the Plus (+) icon and select Invoice.
2.    Once you select the Customer job for the employee, automatically the billable hours will show on the right side of the screen.
3.    Click Add to apply it to the invoice. 
4.    Click Save and close.


By following the steps above, you’ll be able to invoice the employee successfully.
