Timesheet Import Window

Timesheet Import Window
*Please note, your window might have different columns based upon the File Mapping you selected.

Within the Timesheet Import Window, there is grid showing all the time entries in the import file. Any of the values for the time entries may be updated through drop-downs or typing information. If the description of the items (payroll item, service item, customer,name, class) in the Time Entry do not match QuickBooks, create a one-time mapping which will translate the description going forward.

Once all the information has been set for the Time Entry to be imported, click the Import into QuickBooks button. The Time Entries will be imported. If there is an error with an entry, the time entry will be marked in red. Click the Status cell for that time entry to get details.Fix the error and attempt the import again which will only import the ones with errors.
