QuickBooks Online – Getting Connected

Quotient integrates seamlessly with QuickBooks Online. You can lookup your QuickBooks customers and QuickBooks products/services when creating Quotes. These are real-time lookups, meaning they work seamlessly alongside Quotient’s own powerful Contacts and Saved Items.

Best of all, once a Quote has been accepted, an invoice can be created automatically in QuickBooks.

Connect to QuickBooks

  1. Click on your Account Name (on the top-right of your Dashboard), then go to Account Settings → Connected Apps → QuickBooks.
  2. Hit Enable for one of the services you require i.e. Create Invoices.
  3. Sign in to Intuit (QuickBooks), select which company you’d like Quotient to access and hit Authorize. You’ll be redirected back to Quotient.
  4. Hit Enable for any other services you require.

QuickBooks Invoices

An 'open' invoice can be created automatically in QuickBooks from an accepted Quote when the Quote is:

  • Accepted …or…
  • Complete

How to enable QuickBooks Invoices

  1. Under 'Create invoices' hit ‘Enable’.
  2. Confirm when accepted Quotes are sent to QuickBooks, the invoice terms (invoice due date) and what's included on the invoices, hit 'Save, next: Match Detail'.
  3. Match your QuickBooks categories and tax rates to those which are in Quotient using the appropriate drop-downs, hit ‘Save’.

In Quotient there is a 'No tax' rate, which will need to be matched to any tax rate in QuickBooks.

Learn more about Matching Categories.

Displayed on the invoice is the Quote Title, customer order/reference number, a permanent link back to your quote for easy future reference and all accepted Price Items (including Unit Price, Quantity and Heading). There's also the option to include the Long Description text on the invoice.

Contacts are sent to QuickBooks when an invoice is created. If a customer already exists in QuickBooks, Quotient will NOT replace or update the customer or relevant customer information. Contacts are matched by customer display name.

QuickBooks Customers

When adding Contacts to Quotes you can include your QuickBooks customers in lookup results. QuickBooks customers are indicated with a QuickBooks logo.

Once you select a QuickBooks customer it will be saved (copied) into Quotient Contacts. Note: Only a person's name, email and company name are saved.

How to enable QuickBooks Customer Lookups
