In Quickbooks Desktop, if you went to Create a Bill and selected a Vendor (contractor) that had time entered, the system would give you a popup 'Pay for Time Worked' 'This name has time data in the company file. Do you want this check or bill to represent time worked? YES or NO. If you selected YES, you got another popup for Select Time Period. You then selected the date range and OK. Any time for this vendor auto-populated the Items grid.
Can I get this to work in Quickbooks Online?
Good day, bdesilva.
Thank you for the screenshot you've provided. For now, the option to auto-populate the information from a weekly/single timesheet to a bill is unavailable in QuickBooks Online.
For now, we can manually create the bill and pull up the Recent/Edited Time Activities Report for reference. We'll have to multiply the number of hours by the hourly rate you pay your vendor. If the timesheet entries are billable, the Amount column will show what you are charging to your vendor. You can follow the step that I've listed below.
