The TimeTracking component is used to track employees' time.
The TimeTracking component is used to track employees' or subcontractors' time.
To add a TimeTracking record to QuickBooks, specify Employee (Name or Id) and set Duration to the number of minutes worked. Employee is not limited to being a QuickBooks employee, and in case a subcontractor or partner's time is being tracked, Employee might be a QuickBooks Vendor or "Other Name" as well.
If the time is billable to a customer, you must also set the BillableStatus, Customer, and ItemService properties. ItemService refers to a service item from the QuickBooks item list, which describes the type of work performed.
Required Fields (Add): Employee*, Duration
Supported Methods: Add, Get (Id), Delete
