Chapter 9. Tracking Time > Creating New Timer File

Creating New Timer File

When using the timer—whether it is on your computer, as illustrated here, or on someone else's computer where you have installed the program—you don't need to have your QuickBooks program open. The timer works independently of QuickBooks, which is why you can provide the timer to others who aren't using your computer. You record time and activities in the timer, and use the memo area to describe the work you do.

Create New Timer File

Click the Start button; then select Programs, QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Pro Timer.

For this example, we will assume you haven't used the timer before. Click Create New Timer File.

Click OK.

Give your timer file a name. You are limited to eight characters and no spaces.

Click OK.

You are reminded you need to import the timer information. Click No to continue to the import session.

Select File, Import QuickBooks Lists from the Timer menu.

Click Continue on the Import QuickBooks Lists window.

Enter the filename where your timer data was exported from QuickBooks.

Click OK.

Click OK.
