An admin then reviews and approves these entries in Time Tracker. Approved entries automatically sync to QuickBooks for billing, and if enabled, payroll (optional). It works for QuickBooks PC and QuickBooks Online.

A quick reminder
After you connect to QuickBooks, there will be an easy workflow for your time tracking and billing.
- Employees make time entries in Time Tracker from anywhere including from their mobile devices, iPad, Outlook, the desktop widget. They submit these entries in Time Tracker to the admin (usually the boss or bookkeeper).
- An admin then reviews and approves these entries in Time Tracker. Approved entries sync to QuickBooks for billing, and if enabled, payroll (optional).
This workflow makes your billing very efficient, as you or your bookkeeper won't have to manually enter time or billing descriptions in QuickBooks. You can turn your entire team's week or month of time entries into a QuickBooks' invoice in just a few clicks.
So you and your employees track time in Time Tracker—and then send approved entries for billing and payroll in QuickBooks. If you don't approve the entries, they won't show up in QuickBooks.
