Let's re-authorize your integrated application, bwbl.
This helps us to refresh the accessibility of the application.
I'll show you how:
I'v also added these articles on how to sync contacts in QuickBooks Desktop: Sync contacts.
The QuickBooks Community team is up 24/7 to help you. Stay safe!
Integrated Applications in Quickbooks 2020 the Contact Sync name is not shown and Reauthorize is greyed out. My other 2 devices with Quickbooks 2019 has Contact Sync name with greyed out Reauthorize and the same result..Revoked Certificate. I seem to remember clicking Reauthorize once in the newly updated computer to 2020 version. I also clicked removed Contact Sync Application Name, uninstall Quickbooks Contact Sync, Reinstall Contact Sync in hopes to see Contact Sync listed in Integrated Applications..but it is not shown in 2020.
Quickbooks Sync Contacts has same action....unable to initiate due to Revoked Certificate without an option to allow access (Quickbooks will not allow any Revoked Certificate to gain access to company file data).
I have spent time via messaging tech support only to find that they could not help me and I should call Quickbooks Pro tech support. Best I can tell is there is a possibility that Windows 10 update has required newer Sha256 and older Sync Contacts is sha1. But I could be wrong on that one.
Thanks for getting back to us with additional details, bwbl.
We have limited support staff at the moment due to the Corona virus outbreak. Because of this, our phone support for QuickBooks Desktop is temporarily unavailable.
Please reach out to our Technical Support Team through chat instead instead. Here's how:
Please take note our operating hours for chat support depends on the version of QuickBooks that you're using. Please see this article for more details: Support hours and types.
Also, I would recommend reaching out to your IT personnel to verify if you need a newer Sha for the Windows 10 update.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to us again if you have other questions.
No Contact Sync listed in Application Integration under Edit/Preferences/Company Preferences. As stated previously the Reauthorized button is grey and clicking is not available. I ran quickbooks as administrator, the reauthorize button was available but Contact Sync not shown in application list. I clicked it anyway. No change, still getting Revoked Certificate when i select File/Utilities/Synchronize Contacts/Launch
getting no help from Intuit, will have to look else where. Supplied by and Created by intuit ?-not third party, a feature within QB pro and can not get the Certificate for Contact Sync renewed.
More than frustrated over this;
Thanks for coming back, bwbl.
I appreciate the details you've added about your concern.
I see you've already tried to get in touch with our support team. However, this situation requires a more thorough investigation and I suggest contacting them again using the information provided by my colleague JenoP.
Also, due to our the limited support staff as of the moment, I suggest reaching out to them at a later time.
Let me know the results as I want to make sure this is taken care of. I'll keep an eye on this. Wishing you well.
From Microsoft for windows 10:
January 28, 2020 Signatures On The Certificate Trust Lists (ctls) For The Microsoft Trusted Root Program Changed From Dual-Signed (sha-1/sha-2) To Sha-2 Only. No Customer Action Required.
I Am Going To Guess That QB Contact Sync Is Sha-1 And Has Not Been Changed To Sha-2. I Have No Idea How This Is Accomplished, But I Am Guessing It Is Something That Has To Be Done By The Developer/writer Of QB Contact Sync And Not Outlook As Suggested By Tech Support.
From Synergration developer of Contact Sync:
Unfortunately, we stopped supporting that software some time ago. Officially Intuit, having integrated it into QuickBooks many years ago, agreed to handle primary support however we helped solely because they generally failed to.
(bold text not in original email)
I sincerely wish I could be of more assistance.
OK so now where do I go from here?? Intuit, can you get the integrated software to work as advertised?
I too am having same issues, contacted QuickBooks, no help. They had me uninstall QuickBooks and Outlook. Did not solve, and are pushing the buck, spent 3 hours on tech support.
Can't reauthorize as it is greyed out, need this fixed asap or make an app on the marketplace to do the job. There currently is no app because it was built in the program.
Hi there, @Victor E Schaller Jr.
Currently, this is an ongoing investigation about this error when trying to sync their third party applications connected to Quickbooks' Remote Data Sharing Server. This seems to be caused by an old version of the RDS installer. There is a forum post on our Developer site that has some steps you can try to resolve this. Let me send you the links:
Let me know if you need further assistance. Stay safe.
did not fix outlook sync issues, almost 3 months not working, this is unacceptable. either fix it or create a third party app. you are destroying my business. Using QuickBooks for 20 years and I'm a beta tester. You can blow up my e-mails with tests during tax season and corona-virus, but you can't fix a simple program. A disgrace.
I'll take care of this query for you.
According to the system requirements for QuickBooks 2020, the Contact Sync is only compatible with Office versions up to 2010. It's an older application that hasn't been updated to work with current versions of Office.
With that said, I suggest following the suggestion of my colleague @MaryLurleenM above.
Feel free to get back here in the Community in case you have other concerns. I'll be sure to get back to you.
We'll have to take a better look at this, Chris1980.
I'd suggest reaching out to our customer care support. An agent has more tools that can investigate this further. Please follow JenoP's steps on how to get in touch with us.
Let me share the article on how to sync Outlook contacts with QuickBooks Desktop as future reference.
The Community is open 24/7. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Keep safe!
Thanks for checking out with us, @Moe6.
Some certificates aren't automatically updated. These usually occur if there are updates that happen between 2 applications. Currently, no certificate has a non-expiry version. You’ll want to update them manually.
Let’s check first if you have up to date QuickBooks Web Connector. This way, we can ensure you have the latest version number which is 188.8.131.52. Here’s how you do it:
Once done, please verify again the digital signature date. You can follow these steps below:
You can always count on me if there’s anything I can help you with.
I work for the IT department in my company, and I have the newest version of Web Connector, Quickbooks, and ContactSync, and the certificate still shows expired. Where can I get an active certificate?
The latest and valid certificates are automatically installed once the latest version of QuickBooks is also installed. With this, you can contact our developer support so a specialist can help you manage your certificates. Here's how:
In the same manner, you'll want to contact the Technical Support of the other app you wanted to integrated with QuickBooks web connector. From there, someone can help you get their latest certificates and install them in the system.
Lastly, here's an article you can read for ideas in case you receive errors while utilizing the web connector and its function: Fix common Web Connector errors.
If there's anything else that I can help you with, let me know in the comments. I'll be here to lend a hand.
