How I set entering billable time to the quarter hour in quickbooks online?

Hello there, @userawolff.

 

I want to make sure this is taken care of.

 

Let’s use the Time Tracking feature in QuickBooks. All you need to do is enabled this feature in the Company settings. Then, assign a time entry only user access rights to your employees or customer. 

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon, then select Account and Settings.
  2. On the left-hand menu, click Advanced
  3. Click the pencil to the right of Time Tracking Check the Add Service field to timesheets or Add the Customer field to timesheets. When either of these is checked, employees and contractors who fill out timesheets can specify if activities should be billed to a customer.
  4. (Optional) Check the Show billing rate to users entering time.
  5. To select the first day of the workweek, use the drop-down and select the day to begin each workweek. Setting the first day of your workweek affects how employees and contractors view Weekly Time Sheets.
  6. Click Save and Done on the bottom right.

 

Also, you can use the Single time activity feature to manually enter the time you want in the Start time and End time fields. Let me show you how.

  1. Go to the + New menu. Select Single time activity.
  2. Enter the date the activity occurred in the Date field.
  3. From the dropdown ▼, select the name of the employee or vendor. For each type of activity, enter an activity line.
  4. Select the Billable checkbox to ill the activity to the customer.
  5. Choose the Enter start and end times checkbox to enter the work started, ended, and the amount of time. Enter the number of hours and minutes worked in the Time field.
  6. Once done, hit Save.

Appreciate the response however, I'm not sure this answers my question exactly. I enter my time using the weekly timesheet. There if I want to put in 1.75 hours it doesn't calculate as one and three-quarters of an hour. It assigns a off number to the time. I would like to make sure time is billed by the quarter hour. .25, .5, .75. How do I do that so I don't get times that are .10, .15, .40 etc? Thanks!

I can share additional information about adding time in your weekly timesheet, @userawolff.

 

The time format when adding your weekly timesheet should be in HH:MM. When you enter the time in decimal like 1.75, that'll be converted automatically to 1:45.

 

You can also search for a Decimal to Time calculator on the web to help you in converting it. 

 

See this article for more information: Enter a weekly timesheet. Also, here's detailed guidance on the difference between weekly and single timesheets.

 

For more information on how to make time billable and add a Time Tracking user, check this article: how to turn on and set up time tracking.

 

I'm always here if you need more help with your timesheets. Take care and have a wonderful day!

Mary Joy D - I guess I need to train myself to put the time in as 15, 30, 45 instead of 25, 50, 75. Thanks for the assistance.
