Admin access to Workforce when using QB Desktop.The help article does not describe the screen I see.


Hello there, chris,

If you mean accessing employees' paychecks through QuickBooks Workforce, it's currently not available. Right now, QuickBooks Workforce admin can view their paychecks and invite employees.

Also, I'd like to know what article are you referring to so I can review and further explain its details.

Since viewing your employee's paychecks is unavailable in QuickBooks Workforce, so I'd suggest opening them directly inside your QuickBooks Desktop account. Just visit the Employee Center and select the name of your employee from the Employees tab. From there, you can open the paycheck details.

If you wish to know more about providing your employees access to their paychecks and W2s online, you can check out this article: Give Employees Online Access to Paychecks and W2s. This contains steps on how to invite your employee, resend it, and some other FAQ's that might be helpful for you in the future.

Please let me know if you have other concerns. I'm just around if you need help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
