How to Turn Sound Off in Quickbooks
Anyone who has ever started their own business knows that it’s not an easy thing to do. Even when you’re working on building a company you’ve always wanted, there is so much that goes into it. Details you’ve never anticipated.
QuickBooks is an accounting software created precisely for small to medium businesses. It is there to make a lot of “paperwork” easier and better organized. It’s incredibly detailed, and it has a ton of useful features. In this article, we’re going to go over how to turn sound on and off.
Customize Sounds in TSheets
TSheets is a time tracking feature inside QuickBooks Online, which replaces all of the manual data entry. It takes care of everything regarding employee time tracking. Just as QuickBooks, it’s owned by Intuit. It syncs up with QuickBooks Online to track time for customers, jobs, classes, and payroll.
If you are an account administrator, TSheets will play certain sounds when one of your team members clocks in, or when they switch tasks or customers. It’s important to note that these sounds are still not supported on mobile devices. To utilize this feature, you first have to install sound add-ons. Here’s what you need to do:
- Go to the menu on the left and select “Feature Add-ons” and then select “Manage Add-ons.”
- Scroll down and find “Sounds.” Proceed to select “Install.”
When you finish the installation, or if you already have this feature in QuickBooks, you can mute or unmute the sounds. To manage this, you need to go to:
- Go to the upper right corner of TSheets (on the computer) and click on your name.
- Select the sound icon.
- To mute all sounds, click the “Mute sounds” checkbox.
- To change the sounds, select the drop-down menu, and make the selection. If you want to hear the sound, click on the right arrow button.
- In the upper right corner, select “x” to close the window.
Turning Off the Beeping Sound
Now you know how to mute all sounds in QuickBooks. But what if you’re not looking to mute everything, just a specific sound that can be quite bothersome.
When you are recording a journal entry in QuickBooks, you hear a beeping sound. If you want to turn off that sound, this is what you need to do:
- Go to QuickBooks Start and the home screen.
- Then navigate to the top left side of your screen and click “Edit.”
- Scroll down and select “Preferences.”
- A new window will open. Go to the left of the menu and scroll down and select “General.”
- In the “General” menu uncheck the box where it says, “Beep When Recording a Transaction.”
That’s it. You will no longer hear any beeping sounds when you’re recording a journal entry in QuickBooks.
The Best QuickBooks Features
Running a business can be a source of many headaches. One of the most challenging things is keeping track of everything. QuickBooks makes things a lot easier. So, what are the key benefits of using QuickBooks?
Tracking Business Expenses
It’s easy to lose track of all the ins and outs of money. So many things need attention, and there are always unexpected expenses. That is why it’s important to make sure to record every expense. You can connect QuickBooks to your bank accounts, credit cards, and services like PayPal. QuickBooks will import and categorize all the expenses for you. You get to customize everything and make sure that every penny is accounted for.
You can use your QuickBooks mobile app to take pictures of your receipts. And the software will automatically match that information to an existing transaction. You can also view the built-in cash flow statement and know exactly how much money you have.
Manage Your Bills
The more your business grows, the harder it gets to track of all the bills and their due dates. You want to make sure everything is paid on time, so there will be no late fees. If you use QuickBooks to set up recurring bill payments, this can help you stay on track with them.
Also, you can make a partial bill payment. You can enter the amount you intend to pay, and QuickBooks will automatically keep track of everything that you still haven’t covered on the bill.
Payroll Made Easy
Payroll is one of the most important aspects of running a business well. You don’t want to be late with the salaries of the employees, and you don’t want any mistakes. It’s essential everything runs smoothly in that department. You can set up payroll once in QuickBooks, and you don’t have to change it anymore.
QuickBooks automatically calculates all the taxes and also resolves filing errors and pays penalties. You can even access a full suite of HR and other services, including benefits and workers comp.
QuickBooks Is Here to Help – Quietly
There are so many great QuickBooks features that can make running a business a lot easier. For people who use it daily and depend on it, it’s important everything is running well. That can include sounds. Beeping and other notifications can be distracting.
So, it’s good to know that you can mute the sounds altogether, or exclude beeping when you make journal entry transactions. If that is what you need to stay focused, it’s perfectly understandable.
