Quicken & Other Budget/Accounting Software/Color coding QB2013


When entering time on the timesheets, is it possible to customize each employee with a different color?  My boss would like to see each employee's time in color and by name when viewing time to charge when creating an invoice.

Hi Francyn,

No, there is no color option choices for the time windows in QuickBooks.

Instead you might try running the following report

Reports menu > jobs & time > Time by Job Detail report
Customize that report > click on the filter tab >  click on the billing status >
select unbilled. click OK
Now on the display tab change the date range to include ALL dates.
Click OK

Now memorize that report and name it "unbilled time".
That might be a better report to work from than the unbilled time window.

Hope this helps,
