Export to QuickBooks Online

QuickBooks Online is one of many export options we offer. The process for exporting however is much different from its desktop counterpart. Unlike traditional QuickBooks, Quickbooks online will take the information that is exported and sort it in the timesheet.

(Unfortunately upon processing the payroll, the hours would still need to be manually separated. The cause of this is a limitation QuickBooks online has set for imports. We apologize for the inconvenience this may case). 

Exporting to Quickbooks Online: 

  1.   Enable QuickBooks as the preferred payroll export by selecting Settings, and then selecting the General tab.
  2.   Select Payroll Systems and check mark QuickBooksOnline and click Save. (See picture below).

Preparing to properly export data to QuickBooks.
