Post-Sync: QuickBooks Online
Updated over a week ago

Sync Settings

All options can be changed at any time on individual invoices and items or from the Company Settings > Estimate & Invoices > QuickBooks Tab.

(Note: The order in which you sync your items on this page matters - you must sync your items in this order - Customers, Line Items, Invoices.)


A synced customer will display the QuickBooks logo on the customer record.

If a customer needs to be manually synced you can do so by clicking Sync with QuickBooks in the customer record.


An invoice that has been synced will display Open in QuickBooks, which will take you directly to that invoice in QuickBooks when clicked.

(Note: Invoices begin syncing to QuickBooks once they've reached the 'Invoiced' status to indicate that they are awaiting payment. The attached customer, invoice items, and tax rate will also be synced in FieldPulse.)

Records (customers, invoices, etc.) that are deleted/archived in FieldPulse will also be deleted in QuickBooks.

Sales & Purchase Accounts

When creating a line item in FieldPulse, you can select which sales and purchase accounts under which to house the line item in QuickBooks. If you opt not to select a sales or purchase account, it will default to the sales and purchase accounts selected during the initial sync.

Click on Purchase Account…

Business Classes

Business classes are a way to categorize invoices. New business classes must be created in QuickBooks and can be adjusted there as well. When creating an invoice in FieldPulse, you can select which business class to assign.
