TimeSource QuickBooks Pro Timer Payroll Export


The TimeSource payroll export for QuickBooks Pro has been augmented by a new payroll export for QuickBooks Pro/Premier 2002 (or newer) using the Timer function of QuickBooks. Both exports are included with TimeSource Lite and TimeSource Full.

The older TimeSource export may be used with any version of QuickBooks Pro/Premier prior to 2002, and works by making an export file, which is then imported by QuickBooks. TimeSource and QuickBooks are not required to be on the same computer.

The newer TimeSource QuickBooks export uses features built into only the most recent versions of QuickBooks Pro/Premier and therefore works only with versions of QuickBooks 2002 and newer. This most recent TimeSource QuickBooks export communicates directly with the QuickBooks Pro/Premier program and employee hours are written directly into the QuickBooks data files. The current version of the TimeSource QuickBooks export requires that both TimeSource and QuickBooks be installed on the same machine.

Both interfaces produce the same result, but by different methods.

The instructions below cover installing, configuring and running the new TimeSource QuickBooks payroll export. The instructions for the older export are located in the TimeSource manual.
