QB Time Start times

can you set the clock to clock in at a certain start time.  So if they clock in at 5:56am, can the time auto not start until 6am?

QB Time Start times

It's great to see you in the Community today, nickiebruner.


I recognize the importance of being able to control the clock preferences in QuickBooks Time. Allow me to shed some light on how the time-tracking feature works. 


Currently, the option to configure the clock and establish a specific log-in start time is unavailable. However, by integrating this feature into QuickBooks Time, users will be empowered to manage their clock-in time and ensure compliance with your business's policies and requirements.


Our developers are always open to user input and ideas for adding new features and improving QuickBooks Time. I suggest sending your requests for this feature directly to them. Simply follow these steps to send feedback:


  1. Click the question mark icon and choose Suggest Idea.
  2. Type a brief description of the feature you wish to add to the program. 
  3. Press the Send Idea button to submit. 


 Stay informed about the latest product news and innovations from our engineers by checking out the  QuickBooks Blog. If you need to set clock rules for rounding employee time entries to specific intervals, refer to this article: Set up timesheet rounding in QuickBooks Time.


Additionally, these resources will guide you through the process of managing your employees' clock-in and clock-out, setting up their time off, and accurately recording their worked hours. Feel free to browse each one to view the instructions:



Reach out to me again if you have additional questions or concerns about tracking and managing time for your workers. I'll get back to make sure everything is taken care of for you. Enjoy the rest of the day, nickiebruner.
