Quickbooks time tracking software for individual items

Posted on 2011-10-28

I run a tutoring business that has our tutors go into our clients home for pre-paid hours of tutoring. I would the tutors to have an online time tracking system where they can bill their hours to specific line items of a clients pre-paid invoice. For example if Client A has an invoice that has indicated the tutor will come 4 times for 1 hour each, then when Tutor B goes to that client's home, they mark their hours specifically with the items in the invoice.

Is there anyway to do this? I have looked into Office Timesheets but not sure that software can do it. Are there other options out there?

    QB online timesheets only record activity.  Invoices import the activity for billing in summary or detail.
    So, if you used QB online time sheets, the tutor could record the time spent for the customer with notations. The office would have to open the invoice and import the time records against the client prepayment.
    Operationally, if you marked the prepaid invoices as Pending you will have pending sales reports to monitor your obligations.  As the hours are completed you can mark the invoice as Final to 'clear' the obligation.   Printing current status of the invoice would always be availabe.
