Integration with Quickbooks

Integration with Quickbooks

Purpose

Tracking time for jobs done can go a long way in measuring productivity of employees. Using Timesheet, you can also get an understanding of the Project costs and budgets.

Apart from this, Timesheet is also integrated with QuickBooks. This integration with QuickBooks allows the following to be done.

1. Time logs from approved timesheets will be pushed as Time Activity or as Time Charge. Employees can be paid out based on the approved timelogs using this integration.

  • The time logs that are created for Clients are pushed as Time Charge in the local currency. The currency defined when the Client was created on Zoho People should be the same as the local currency in QuickBooks (Local currency refers to the currency of the organization as created in QuickBooks). If not, then the time logs will be pushed only as Time Activity.
  • The time logs that are created without being associated with any Clients will be pushed as Time Activity. Payment for Time Activity should be carried out only in QuickBooks.

2. The bills that have been generated in your Zoho People account can be pushed as Invoice into QuickBooks. The currency that will be used in the bill will be the local currency (Local currency refers to the currency of the organization as created in QuickBooks). However, if you would like to push the bill in some other currency, then you can enable the option called "Multicurrency" in QuickBooks.
