Chrometa Introduces 'Automatic Time Capture' Add-On for QuickBooks

QuickBooks Users Can Now Track Their Time Without Notes, Timers or Manual Entry


Sacramento, Calif., Jul. 21, 2011 – Chrometa LLC, creator of time capture tools, announced the compatibility of its flagship Chrometa time tracking software with QuickBooks. Users of desktop versions of QuickBooks can now let Chrometa capture and categorize their time automatically for them – without using notes or timers – and then automatically port these time entries into QuickBooks.


"For our customers who use Chrometa for timekeeping and QuickBooks for bookkeeping, the common question they asked us was:, ‘How can I get my Chrometa time entries into QuickBooks?’” said Brett Owens, Chrometa CEO and Co-Founder. “So, we created an export that will allow you to export your time entries out of Chrometa into a format that is compatible for immediate import into QuickBooks. This is a great option for users who want a QuickBooks timekeeping alternative, while still having access to the full features of QuickBooks itself.”


How Chrometa’s Export to QuickBooks Works:

  • Within Chrometa, go to Account - Integrations - QuickBooks Export.
  • Check “Enable QuickBooks Export,” and enter your relevant company specific QuickBooks info.
  • Click “Update,” and you will now see an “Export to IIF (QuickBooks)” option, located under the More menu. This option will create an IIF file that you can then import into QuickBooks.
  • To import the IIF file into QuickBooks, go to File - Utilities - Import - Timer Activities, and select the IIF file that you exported from Chrometa. This will create your Chrometa time entries in QuickBooks.
