Option 1: The best way to do this is add your contractors in QuickBooks as employees but do not add any salary information. This way they will automatically sync with the rest of your employees.
Option 2: The other option is to disconnect from QuickBooks and add the contractors manually. But if you do this you will not be able to sync again in the future.
We suggest using option 1.
