The Intuit QuickBooks Web Connector (QWC) is a Windows application developed by Intuit that allows data to be exchanged between QuickBooks Desktop users and service providers like Hour Timesheet. The QWC is a go-between application which enables data sharing with SaaS applications on the internet

QWC Requirements

To enable a web service to access your QuickBooks, you must use a QWC file provided by Hour Timesheet. You must have the QuickBooks company file open and you must be logged on as the QuickBooks administrative user for the initial installation of the QWC file. During the sign up process of your Hour Timesheet account, you are asked to create an admin-level password. That password is required to active the web connector service in QuickBooks.

Why use a web connector?

1. Auto-sync QuickBooks data into Hour Timesheet.

Because Hour Timesheet offers easy QuickBooks integration, manual entry of data is not required in your Hour Timesheet account. The web connector will successfully auto-populate all of your data from your company QuickBooks Desktop file.
  – Customer/Job list
  – Payroll Items
  – Service Items
  – Class
  – Employees
  – 1099’s

2. Auto-populate employee timecard data in QuickBooks.

All timesheet details import and populate the employee timecard in QuickBooks making it simple to process your payroll and create your customer invoices. The QuickBooks timecard includes:
  – Employee time by job code and by day
  – Comments entered by users in Hour Timesheet
  – Leave (PTO, Sick, Holiday, etc..) entered on the Hour Timesheet

NOTE: The Web Connector is designed to access only one company file on a Windows desktop computer.  If you have multiple companies and/or Hour Timesheet accounts that sync with QuickBooks, you will need a separate web connector file for each account and/our admin user.
