Time tracking with Quicken

I'm self-employed and often bill out on an hourly basis. Is there a time-tracking app that I can use that'll upload my time into the Quicken Home & Business invoice software?

    There's no  "time clock" function in QH&B itself.  Nor am I aware of any way to import such info into Q ... as there's no place to receive the data.

    Hey there!

    Unfortunately this feature isn't available in Quicken.

    I'm going to change this post into an idea thread so other users can vote on this feature.

    Thank you for your contribution to the community!

    Hey Lee,

    I would create an Idea thread so other users can vote to have the feature added.

    A time tracker for Quicken would be excellent. I currently use both Quickbooks and Quicken Home, Business & Rental Property. The only reason I even use Quickbooks at all is for the ability to track and invoice for time. I use TSheets to record times and then import the data back into Quickbooks. A time recorder integrated into Quicken would be ideal and would allow me to drop Quickbooks altogether, assuming the timer were implemented properly. Quickbook's method of using a separate timer is workable but not ideal. Exporting customer data and then importing times is a bit cumbersome. I think Quicken could appeal to a much larger user base if a more robust time tracking and billing system were implemented.

    I really wish Quicken Business has time and labor tracking and billing. I currently now currently have to track it using various excel sheets to do the same.

    Quicken is supposed to be for tracking rental expenses and property management. New IRS regulations allows a 20% deduction, only if a rental is "qualified business income" ,QBI. it allows a 20% for a deduction from income This can be huge. It requires that the taxpayer keep track of hours worked to proof it. Quicken should add a time tracking function, that is integrated with the posting of rental expenses. This is a critical, and valuable function to all rental users.

    I am sure there are better applications for time tracking, but if you must use Quicken to track this, maybe you could set up an account, mark it as "Separate" and enter a deposit of $1.00 for each hour you work.

    You could use the Tags for the rental properties to keep track of which one you were working on.

    The Payee could be the person doing the work and maybe you could set up a QBI Category with subcategories to indicate the nature of the work.

    Right now I am posting my time to my iCalendar with a specific category for the rentals, color coded blue different from anything else. I post the hours by changing the calendar period of the day actually done, and entering a detail description of what was done that day in the description line. I bought an app TimeTable 3 that sucks out the calendar items by category and puts it into a spreadsheet by date. I can add and segment using spreadsheet functions. I believe this meets the QBI documentation. We shall see

    You need to click the small triangle under the number of votes already received to record your vote.  Did that work?  It worked, just now, for me.

    Did you try clicking on the vote button in @Quicken_Tyka 's post or did you try clicking on the vote button in the first post at the top of this idea thread? 
    The vote button in @Quicken_Tyka 's post is just a picture to show what the button looks like.  It is not the actual vote button.  Go to the first post in this thread and try clicking on the button there.

    Quicken NEVER pre-announces features until JUST BEFORE they're released.  And IF/WHEN such a feature is ever created, it will first be Beta Tested where all of the Beta testers have signed a Non-Disclosure agreement, and can't discuss such.
    Also, the Q employees have, likewise, signed the NDA and can't answer your question either.
