I can provide you information regarding time tracking user in QuickBooks, @nancy83.


The Time tracking user can access timesheets and see time reports. However, the option to select pay items is unavailable. This means that your employees can only enter their own time activities on the sheet.


Only the administrator has the ability to access and modify the pay section and the associated reports.


You can check this article for detailed information about timesheets set up in QuickBooks Online. It includes instructions on how to approve their worked hours so when you run payroll, your employee's total pay hours are automatically calculated.


Let us know if you have other concerns with the timesheet. We’ll always be here to assist you. Keep safe.

Hello, nancy83.

 

When creating weekly timesheets, you can choose any pay items once you've selected an employee. I'm here to help you achieve this. 

 

Let's go back and evaluate your weekly timesheets created. After that, make sure to pick an employee from the Whose time are you tracking? field. From there, you'll be able to view the option to select a pay item

 

Here's how you can create a weekly timesheet:

 

  1. Click the Plus icon.
  2. Under Employees, select Weekly Timesheet.
  3. Choose an employee.
  4. Select a Pay type.
  5. Enter the hours your employee worked.
  6. Click Save and close.

This way, you'll be able to create a weekly timesheet and choose a pay type for your employee.

 

That's it. Please let me know if you need anything else. I'll be here to lend a hand. Have a great day, and stay safe!

Thank you for the response, but my problem is not with me as an administrator being able to select the Pay Item on the timesheet. I want to know if it is an option for the employee who is entering their time on the timesheet (who is a time tracking only QuickBooks user) to have the Pay Item field on their timesheet.
