Time activity allocation

We are allocating time activity into various projects into different customers.  Time allocation to Project 1 is going well.  But when with other projects, time activity is recorded but it does not reflect on the project overview and time activity. What am I doing wrong?

Time activity allocation

Thanks for choosing QuickBooks Time to track your timesheets, AMR19. It's difficult when some of your time activity is missing. I'm here to assist you with that.


You'll have to make sure you've exported all the approved hours in QuickBooks Time. This way, they'll reflect on the Projects page in QuickBooks Online. Also, please note that we only export up to 3 months of previous timesheets.


If you've exported the latest timesheets, I'd recommend temporarily uninstalling the QuickBooks Online Integration to rectify the issue. I'll show you how:


  1. Log in to your QuickBooks Time account.
  2. Go to Feature Add-ons on the left menu.
  3. Choose to Manage Add-ons.
  4. Uninstall the QuickBooks Online Integration.


After that, let's activate your QuickBooks Time from your QuickBooks Online account. Simply go to the Time menu, then select the Activate QuickBooks Time option.


If the issue persists, I'd suggest viewing your projects via a private browser. This is a good place to determine if this is a browser-related issue. Here are the keyboard shortcuts: 


  • Safari: Command + Shift + N 
  • Google Chrome: CTRL + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge: CTRL + Shift + P 


Once logged in, view your time activity. If you're able to do so, let's clear the browser's cache. This removes its stored files to ensure the program performs efficiently.


You can also access your account using supported browsers. They'll provide the best and most secure experience with QuickBooks. 


Additionally, I've included these articles that'll help you learn more about tracking and managing timesheets using projects:



Also, may I know how you manage the Projects? Is it within QuickBooks Time or QuickBooks Online? Adding additional details will help us further investigate this issue.


Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns about managing your time activity, AMR19. I’m always here to keep helping.

Time activity allocation

@CharleneMaeF I'm new at Quickbooks, so I might have labeled things wrongly.  I am using Quickbooks app (, so its only 1 app.  I log the hours through Projects>Add to Project>Time>Personnel's name>Add work details.  Once done, I go again to Projects>Project name>Time Activity  but the hours that I entered are not reflected there.

But if I go to Time>Time entries>Employee name, I would see the hours that I entered.
