How to Run a Time Tracking Report in QuickBooks

  • google plus

In Brief...

When you use either of the time tracking methods in QuickBooks, you can generate reports based on timed activities. These reports are useful for confirming that all billable jobs have been invoiced to customers, for confirming the hours recorded, and for seeing the total hours spent for each customer. The following explains how to run a time tracking report.

This feature works the same in versions 2011–2016 of QuickBooks.

Instructions

Go to the menu, select Reports > Jobs, Time & Mileage and then select the desired report.
Select Report from Drop-down

The time tracking reports available may vary based on your version of QuickBooks. The following are a few reports available with QuickBooks Pro:

  1. Time by Job Summary: Shows the time for each customer broken down by service item for a specified date range.
