Contractors - getting contractors already created into the worker list to create 1099s

I created contractors in the drop-down menu when completing bank transactions, not in the worker section. How do I now get these people into the system as an actual contractor? When I try to add the persons name, it say I already have that name as a contractor, but under the list of contractors, they are not there.

Contractors - getting contractors already created into the worker list to create 1099s

Greetings qpg,

 

Let me help you recreate the contractor's profile.

 

Once you created a contractor in the bank feeds section, they'll be added as vendors in QuickBooks Online. While we are unable to convert a vendor to a contractor, you can rename the vendors and make them inactive. Then, add them as contractors in the Workers tab.

 

Here's how:

 

To rename and make the vendor inactive:

  1. Select the Expenses tab on the left pane.
  2. Click the contractor's name, then click the Edit button.
  3. Change the name and click the Make inactive button.
  4. Click Yes to confirm.

To add a contractor in the Workers tab:

  1. Go to the Workers tab.
  2. Click the Add a contractor button.
  3. Enter a name and email.
  4. Click the Add contractor button.

To provide a visual point of reference, I’ve included screenshots.

 

Here's an article for more information:  How to add, edit and inactivate contractors.

 

Please don't hesitate to post again if you run into any issues. I'm always here to help.​ Have a great day!
