Import your data from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Time using Web Connector

SOLVEDby QuickBooksUpdated December 22, 2022

Learn how you can import your data from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Time using web connector.

You can import your data from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Time using Web Connector to make sure that your data is up to date. Here’s how.

Note:

  • You will want to perform an import each time you've updated something in QuickBooks that needs to also update in QuickBooks Time (for example, updated employee name, new customer and so on).
  • To perform a sync, you must be logged into QuickBooks as the main admin and in single user mode. Also, you must use the computer that the QuickBooks Time integration is set up on.
  •  Performing a sync in the Web Connector performs an import during each sync and an export if there are newly approved timesheets.

How to import your data

  1. Open QuickBooks Time and QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Log in to QuickBooks as admin in single-user mode to perform a sync.
  3. In QuickBooks Desktop, go to File and select App Management. Then, select Update Web Services.
  4. The Web Connector opens.
  5. Select the appropriate company file, then select Update Selected.

Note: We don’t recommend using the Auto-Run feature in Web Connector. If it’s necessary, then set the frequency to 60 minutes or greater. ​
