    • Weekly Timesheet: Larger description field, fit window width, Summary, billable box

      Please change the Weekly Timesheet to make the description field much bigger so we can actually see what we type. Make the window fit within the width of the screen so we don't have to scroll. Include a summary of hours for the day/week with the dates in the top row. Add a "billable" check box like you have in the Single Activity entry page. Basically, make the new version of the time sheet look like the old version of the timesheet. The current layout is almost unusable for our purposes.
      (Background: we had QB Online PRO and recently opened…

      • Time sheets: Please don't automatically move us to the current week after clicking save.

        When I click save, please don't automatically move me to the current week. Keep me in the week I was working on. This "feature" has lost me hours and hours of time by inputing information in the wrong week. Yikes! ; )

        • Stop Watch Widget & Mobile App

          Time tracking:
          In QB Desktop you can start/stop/pause multiple timers for multiple projects in multiple clients at the same time.
          We have developers & designers that get pulled back & forth between projects/clients throughout their day. It would be helpful to have a simple way to track their time & submit easily at the end of the day.
          A stop watch type time tracker as a desktop widget & mobile app would be extremely useful for our employees.
          Thank you!

          • Weekly time sheets: Please provide a method to see the day we're inputing time when we are well down a page.

            We bill our time in 15 minute increments and this can lead to many MANY entries using the weekly time sheet function and cause the need to scroll up and down constantly to ensure we're putting our time in the right day. Please provide a method to know what day I'm inputing time when I'm scrolled well down the page - currently we have to count the boxes to know which days of the week they correspond to.

            • Sick and Vacation Weekly Timesheet

              Need the ability to track vacation and sick time via the weekly timesheet. Also need to have this information feed payroll. This was in the desktop version not sure why it was omitted from qbonline.

              • Hours in Decimal Format, Please!

                Bring back the ability to record hours in decimal format. Clients can understand 1.5 hours times a rate of $100 equals $150. No one knows what 1:30 means, and even if they do, they can't easily do the math to confirm the price.

                  • Contractor time tracking on Timesheets

                    Allow time tracking with Contractors (not just employees) paid on hourly basis so these hours flow to Bills, and you can pay Vendor either as a Direct Deposit or check.

                      • Allow billing in decimals, as with the desktop version. I work with attorneys who all bill in decimals.

                        I work with attorneys, all of whom bill in tenths of an hour. As a result, I must bill them in decimals. The option is available in the desktop version. Please make it available in QBO.

                        • Weekly Timesheet issues

                          1. Add dates under days. When many lines are entered for one individual, it is extremely important we know the hours match the dates. I've caught myself several times already being in the wrong week.
                          2. Make the details field in the Weekly Timesheet a fixed pane so that no matter how many lines are added, the day/date is always visible in the viewing field.
                          3. When copying the previous timesheet (thanks for putting that back) Fix the tabbing function so that when tabbing to a new day/date field, the current hours entry can be overwritten (as it was in…

                            • Time Activity on App Version

                              As an hourly freelancer who predominantly works out in the field, I rely on 'Time Activity' within the 'Sales' tab of 'Transactions'. The fact that this function is not available on the iOS App versions of QBO, makes those apps unusable for me. I would expect the mobile App to have this feature since it is critical for people who charge clients by the hour at different locations. I can't always bring a laptop to a job. So rather than bringing just my phone I must bring my iPad and use the browser version of QBO. When will the 'Time…

                                • Employee Weekly Timesheet and Single Time Activity

                                  Why there's no option to remove the inactive, terminated, not on payroll employees from the drop down list on the Weekly Timesheet and Single Time Activity page (create + sign > employees). Over the time, this list grows a lot and a complete waste of time just to locate the active employee.

                                    • Weekly Time sheets / Payroll

                                      It would be very helpful if I could fill out weekly time sheets with regular pay, OT Pay, Double OT pay etc and transfer directly over to payroll in correct payroll columns instead of all hours defaulting to regular pay. Tom
