Why am I not able to change the "Pay Item" field on the Weekly Timesheet ?

 

After I either 1) import from TSheets or 2) save the Weekly Timesheet, I am not able the change the Pay Item field without deleting the line. 

 

Is there a way to have access to this field?

Thanks for touching base again, @lisa91.

 

At the moment, the ability to modify this field after import from TSheets or on Save. For now, you'll need to continue delete and re-create the line. There may be mapping options available from within TSheets where you can map this so you won't need to modify the timesheet, however you'll need to reach out to their Support Team.

 

In the meantime, I recommend keeping an eye out on our blog to stay up-to-date on all things QuickBooks. We'll post any updates to the product there.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions for me. I'm determined to ensure your success.

I'd like to share some information about importing from TSheets, lisa91.

 

When you import time from TSheets to QuickBooks Online, we're unable to modify any of the details including the Pay Item field. However, if you want to modify the pay item, you can QuickBooks time tracking.

 

This helps you track your employees' and vendors' number of hours consumed in a project.

 

Just a heads up, this feature is available in QuickBooks Online Essentials, QuickBooks Online Plus, and QuickBooks Online Advanced versions.

 

I've added this article on how to set up time tracking: How to turn on and set up time tracking.

 

You always have me if you have clarifications about time tracking.

Hi.

 
I read the article and went to Settings, Advanced. We have used the Service field for awhile. I still did not see how to change the Pay Item field after a Save. What am I missing? Here is my specific example.
 
  1. We are not using TSheets. We were only testing TSheets to see if we liked it. We will be adding it in the future.
  2. We manually enter Weekly Timesheets
  3. We use the Service field on the Weekly Timesheets to track jobs to customers
  4. We are not using Weekly Timesheets to create invoicing
  5. When I save the Weekly Timesheet (whether I am truly finished or need to do something else), after the Save, the Pay Item field is no longer available to me.
 
Is there a way to change the Pay Item field after a Save? If not, we can continue to delete the line and reenter if necessary .
 
Thanks for your assistance.IMG_4684.JPG

I can't believe this is checked off as solved.  It is almost a year later and this problem still exists.  This issue is not solved.  The "solution" is to delete the time entry line and re-enter the information on a new line.  If I have 20-30 lines to correct then that is no solution.  Please quit telling us to check the blog and instead fix issues like this so we don't have to use painful re-work and work arounds since this software is not flexible and does strange things like this.

I agree that this is not resolved. We are still experiencing the same problem - very frustrating and I am not sure if we will continue to use QuickBooks for timesheets and payroll.
