Employees and payroll

Hey there @Lisa,

Thanks for your quick response!

It's okay to see the employee's name when running payroll. Should you not want this to show in QuickBooks, just set the employee to inactive.

Here's how:
1. In QuickBooks Desktop, choose Employees > Employee Center.
2. Select the employee name.
3. In the Edit Employee window, select the Employee is inactive checkbox.
4. Click OK.

When the employee comes back you can make them active by removing the check mark in the "Employee is Inactive" checkbox.

Let me know if you need anything else.
