What it is: TSheets Time Tracking is a – you guessed it – employee time-tracking and management software. And it’s the ONLY time tracking system inside QuickBooks.
How it works with QuickBooks: We have embedded the powerful employee time tracking capabilities of TSheets directly in Quickbooks Online.

Sales receipts and fee tracking are also killer features of this app – we’ll automatically record the PayPal fees for you to an expense account of your choice, so you don’t have to enter them by hand.
How it works with QuickBooks: Via a direct connection with PayPal, we’ll retrieve any balance affecting transactions you have in PayPal and display them in your QuickBooks banking tab. You can then easily edit, categorize and match transactions to ensure your books are accurate and up to date.
