  28. A1: ClockShark’s Timesheets can be imported into @knowify for job costing! #qbochat
  29. A2: Our apps use GPS so you know where your clocked in employees are, just like Electroreception, a shark’s 6th sense #QBOchat
  30. A2: Sharks are the top of the food chain in the ocean, just like ClockShark is for construction & field service companies #QBochat
  31. Does anyone have any shark gif’s to share? It seems appropriate. 🙂 #QBOchat
  32. A2: ClockShark isn’t the best in every situation, but for construction and field service companies, we can’t be beat. #QBOchat
  33. @AlanScottHolley This is going to be the party of the year! Come see me & Alan from the #QBOchat crew repping @avalara & @tsheets (what better combo, right?!) Cannot wait for this at #QBConnect

    Q3: Why should a construction or field services business owner consider a time-tracking app like @getclockshark? #QBOchat pic.twitter.com/jr79hIqWe0
  35. @avalara What is around that shark? Is it a unicorn shark? #QBOchat
  36. A3: According to the APA, 2-8% of total payroll is overpaid to rounded time. Electronic time tracking solves this #QBOchat

  38. @balsamway So happy you are here, Sherri! The team cannot wait to see you next week! The countdown is on! #QBOchat

  43. I do, but often wish I didn’t 🙂 RT @QBOchat Who here works with construction or field service businesses? #QBOchat
  44. @BizBooksCloud Still got the gif posted, that’s all that matters in the end! :p #qbochat
  45. A3: Payroll and Job Costing is faster because time sheets don’t need to be tracked down or typed in #QBOchat
  46. @BizBooksCloud @QBOchat What are your go-to apps for your construction or field service clients, Brent? #QBOchat
  47. @avalara You Bet – we have a large Canadian Contingent coming down – think there is about 45+ #QBOTeamCanada #QBOTeamCanada #qbochat
  48. @BizBooksCloud @QBOchat I tend to stay away from those types of clients – or they just aren’t attracted to me. I guess it is mutual. 😉 #QBOchat
  49. A4: Super simple interface with only exactly what they need. So easy, no training needed #QBOchat
  50. #1 TSheets! also Expensify & ServiceM8 RT @amilestsheets @BizBooksCloud go-to apps for your construction or field service #QBOchat
  51. A4: Real-time schedules that provide job locations and can give turn by turn directions #QBOchat
  52. They do tend to be high maintenance RT @CathyIconis @BizBooksCloud @QBOchat I tend to stay away from those types of clients #qbochat
  53. HOLY DOODLE – you are on A4 @getclockshark is rockin it and I still only see Q1 #LeftOut 🙁 #qbochat
  54. @BizBooksCloud That’s awesome! Thanks, Brent! 🙂 I totally feel the love for @tsheets & @expensify too!! #QBOchat
  55. @QBOchat @getclockshark A4: Mobile time tracking allows employees to clock in/out, take breaks, submit PTO/timesheets, and change tasks from anywhere with the simple touch of a button. Easy peasy! 🙂 #QBOChat
  56. @balsamway Oh no way! That’s so exciting! I’ll take a 2-4 of Canadian, please! :p #QBOchat pic.twitter.com/PMg2V0rZS8
  57. A4: Schedule, time and geofence triggered reminders help employees clock in and clock out at the right times #QBOchat
  58. @balsamway @getclockshark Are you not seeing the questions with the pictures? Are you using twitter or what system? #QBOchat
  59. A4: Sharks’ simple design makes them fast and agile, just like @getclockshark is for users. #QBOchat
  60. @CathyIconis @davidleary Will definitely fit it into my agenda and stop by if I can! #qbochat
  61. @CathyIconis @getclockshark i’m in tweetchat, the latest Windows update is causing me #grief
    Just being thrown #carrots #qbochat
  62. Love this time saving/ increased accuracy. So many business users spend way too much time keying in time! #qbochat  https://twitter.com/getclockshark/status/928720925255544832 
  63. @balsamway @getclockshark You can always try a twitter search.  http://bit.ly/2vG1hAL  We were having issues months ago about not showing up on there! #QBOchat
  64. Q5: How does @GetClockShark help projects move forward and make life easier for supervisors? #QBOchat https://t.co/isxNT4vzlr
    Q5: How does @getclockshark help projects move forward and make life easier for supervisors? #QBOchat pic.twitter.com/isxNT4vzlr
  65. @vheckman No kidding. That’s just free money if you move to electronic time tracking! Usually pays for itself in month 1 #QBOchat
  66. A5: Real-time scheduling that sends notifications to the phones when the schedule changes – always up to date #QBOchat
  67. A5: Manager permissions allowing supervisors to mass clock people in or for the guy who forgot his phone #QBOchat
  68. A5: @getclockshark what about when employees are in remote location without cell service – what can be done??? #qbochat
  69. A5: ClockShark lets you know where your clocked in employees are on a map. Each clock punch includes a GPS location #QBOchat
  70. @getclockshark It definitely helps to be able to provide real-time updates to the field. Saves everyone time and frustration. #QBOchat
  71. A5: Yes, ClockShark works without signal. All time records are synced when service returns. #QBOchat
  72. A5: Attached and share files and photos from the office to the field and back. Great for tracking work progress #QBOchat
  73. @QBOchat @avalara And now we’re all about helping you grow your practice by adding compliance services! 😀  http://avlr.co/2AoYmP1  #qbochat
  74. A5: Mobile time tracking for crews allows supervisors to clock in their whole crew, or just one person at a time. They can also adjust crew schedules on the fly or move crews from one site to another. #QBOChat
  75. @balsamway @getclockshark Great question!! Does the QBO App even have info available if you don’t have cell coverage? #QBOchat
  76. A5: Additionally, mobile time tracking apps that track the location and status of equipment mean you always have the right tools in the right place at the right time. #QBOChat
  77. @getclockshark how much time can be stored … Client works out on ocean for days at a time … #qbochat
  78. @tsheets That’s exactly what our CrewClock feature does! Helpful when cell phones are forgotten or die. #QBOChat
  79. Q6: How can @GetClockShark's time tracking app help the accounting staff of construction businesses? #QBOchat https://t.co/mGDCz2JcYz
    Q6: How can @getclockshark‘s time tracking app help the accounting staff of construction businesses? #QBOchat pic.twitter.com/mGDCz2JcYz
  80. No but time keeping apps have ways to deal with it, construction companies who work in new areas without coverage RT @CathyIconis #QBOchat
  81. Aside from our awesome #qbochat meetup (don’t forget to RSVP 😉 ) and the @tsheets & @avalara party, what is everyone looking forward to most at QB Connect??
  82. @balsamway As long as the phone has storage available, forever 🙂 #QBOchat
  83. A6: Two way integration with QBO and the desktop versions of QuickBooks means no more double data entry #QBOchat
  84. A6: 30% of all businesses are affected by payroll fraud. Small business are twice as susceptible. ClockShark stops that #QBOchat
  85. A6: 5 Star rated customer support available whenever you need it via phone, email or chat. None of it is outsourced. #QBOchat
  86. A6: Entering data into smartphones and tablets, instead of filling out paper forms or creating spreadsheets to track projects, saves your back office staff TONS of time. #QBOChat
  87. @vheckman @tsheets @avalara Same!! I’m hoping I can fit a few sessions into my calendar so I can take it all in and learn!! #QBOchat
  88. A6: The ACEClub helps you know when it’s smart to recommend ClockShark, and it’s free to join.  http://bit.ly/2zlUoKg  #QBOchat
  89. @vheckman @amilestsheets @tsheets I can’t wait to be there and spend my time highlighting awesome speakers/businesses/accountants and have a heck of a good time! #QBOchat
  90. Q7: What sort of payroll regulations should constructions businesses be aware of? #QBOchat https://t.co/CbhVgfk4bn

  91. A7: Is travel time to the first job site of the day considered hours worked? Find out:  http://bit.ly/2heRyvR  #QBOChat
  92. I’m so behind on today’s chat – switched devices 1/2 thru. Any of you going to Nov 14 reception for #qbconnect? #QBOchat
  93. Man, #QBConnect sounds like it’s going to be awesome. Hope to join you all next year and hope you all have a blast! #QBOChat
  94. A7: According to FLSA, what breaks do you have to give by law in an 8-hour shift? See here:  http://bit.ly/2zpLtqY  #QBOChat
  95. A7: The big one here is the Davis-Bacon Act which applies primarily to the construction industry! This act requires payments of prevailing wages and benefits weekly to all employees working on govt projects worth $2,000 & up. https://t.co/vEhD7PClKr #QBOchat https://t.co/cGo2lD73pM

  96. A7 Is overtime per week or per pay period, and are field managers paid by salary exempt? #qbochat
  97. Just a few minutes left of #QBOchat. Does anyone have any chat topic ideas for the future?
  98. @tsheets A7: To piggy back off of @tsheets – overall the BEST way for construction companies to comply with the Davis-Bacon Act is to create a certified payroll report. We have a resource that shows you how to do just that!  http://bit.ly/2hnwwib  #QBOchat
  99. @BizBooksCloud Good one. Different in each state so its important to get clear. #QBOchat
  100. Remember you can download the #QBConnect app to build out your agenda, read more about sessions, speakers, exhibitors, access the map and more! #qbochat
  101. @vheckman I love the #QBConnect app! I’ve been playing around in it the last few days!! #QBOchat
  102. That’s it for this week’s #QBOChat, thanks for taking the time to tweet with us! Thanks to @getclockshark for taking over today! It’s been a blast!

#QBOchat began in July 2013 with the simple idea to host a weekly Twitter conversation around QuickBooks Online (QBO). We have since grown into a very strong community comprised of a diverse group of users. Our weekly tweet chat is held each Thursday at 3:00PM Eastern. The discussions cover a wide range of topics including QBO’s latest features and updates, business operation tips and apps that integrate with QBO, to name just a few.
