Timesheet Link – IIF


Import time records into QuickBooks from Excel. The "Timesheet Link - IIF" uses an IIF file to integrate your lists with QuickBooks instead of the newer direct connection.

Purchase License

Manage your Employees’ time sheets in Excel and Import them into QuickBooks!

Note: This is a special version of the Timesheet Link which uses IIF files for list integration. Generally, we recommend the direct connect version has additional error checking to ensure smoother importing. If QuickBooks is not installed on your computer, or if the company file you will import time into is not available locally, this version of the Timesheet Link will work best.


Use this add-in to quickly enter time in Excel for individual employees or groups of employees. Or have your employees fill out excel-based time sheets and then import into QuickBooks.

You can batch-create customized time sheets using Excel, email time sheets to employees, and then batch-import time sheets into QuickBooks. The Excel Timesheet also supports importing time records from other sources, such as time clock software.

Enter start/stop times in Excel. Time sheets will automatically calculate the time worked for import into QuickBooks.

Create time sheets for one or multiple employees. Or, include multiple employees on a single worksheet time sheet so you can copy/paste time from one employee to another to speed data entry.
