Mapping Payroll Items


In order for hours to properly be exported to QuickBooks Payroll, payroll items must be mapped within SpringAhead. Using this article, you will:

  • Map your Time Types in SpringAhead to Payroll Items in QuickBooks
  • Create custom Time Types (optional)  

Mapping to Standard Time Types

  • Log in as an administrator.
  • Click on Settings, then click My Company.
  • Scroll down to the Timecard Payroll Items and Codes section and click on More Settings.
  • Select the correct payroll item for each time type. Hourly settings are on the left and Salary settings are on the right. 


  • Click Save and Close.

Creating Custom Time Types

If you need additional time types in SpringAhead to map to QuickBooks, you can create custom time types.

  • Log in as an administrator.
  • Click on Settings, then click Time Types.
  • Click on Add New at the top of the screen.
  • Give the time type a name.
  • Select whether the time is billable and/or payable and map it to the appropriate payroll item.
  • Click Save and Close.
