I just returned recently from the wowtastic QuickBooks Connect conference in San Jose, California. As always, I gained a ton of knowledge about how to run, grow, and develop my business and heard about many exciting new features coming down the pipe for QuickBooks Online (QBO). I also explored a plethora of apps that connect to QBO.
One of the standouts was TSheets. Of course, they are hard to miss at QB Connect, known for their parties, fun loot, and anticipated scheduled raffles at their rancous booth. They truly love us QuickBooks ProAdvisors! But they also love their employees and customers. This shows when contacting them for support; their employees are so fun and bubbly, using funny words like ticklers for follow up reminders, that this is one of the few companies I would look forward to calling. They are customer-focused because they know they already have an awesome product but they listen to feedback and update their software with amazing new features all the time.
As an Intuit Online Payroll (IOP) user, I was thrilled when I learned that I can now import TSheets timesheets in IOP. Even though IOP has a timesheet and time clock add on, IOP discontinued job costing, which was a real bummer to say the least. But you can have the best of both worlds with TSheets: job costing using customers from QuickBooks in time data and the export of hours directly into payroll. And setting this all up was as easy as installing a Chrome Extension and simply connecting to QBO. It literally takes seconds, it is so easy!
But wait, it doesn't just end there! The big reveal was the direct integration of TSheets' famous timesheet directly within QuickBooks Online. Instead of having to export time to QBO from within TSheets, which only required one click, you can now click on Approve Time under the Employees menu in QBO and seamlessly enter time. The look and feel mimics QBO to a T so it doesn't even look like you have left QBO.

Fast forward to the future! It is partnerships like this that will propel QuickBooks Online into the forefront of technology and enable small businesses to become even more efficient. Thanks TSheets!
