Discontinuation (Disco) of Intuit Sync Manager

SOLVEDby QuickBooksQuickBooks Enterprise SuiteUpdated April 23, 2021

Due to technology improvements, Intuit has made the decision to discontinue Intuit Sync Manager. There are other solutions available and we have been working with developers so you can continue to use your applications without Sync Manager.

What is Intuit Sync Manager?

Intuit Sync Manager is one of the methods used that securely syncs your QuickBooks company file data with 3rd party applications and some internal add on services such as recurring payments.

When will Sync Manager no longer be available?

  • On March 1st, 2016, 3rd party applications (i.e., non-Intuit)  will no longer have access to Sync Manager. The majority of 3rd party developers have provided or are in the process of providing a solution for you to continue to use their app. Review list below for solution and 3rd party contact information.
  • Effective May 31, 2016 Intuit Sync Manager for Desktop will no longer be available for Intuit applications.


Applications not impacted at this time:

  • Apps that use Web Connector
  • Intuit Data Protect (IDP)
  • Field Service Management (FSM)
  • Intuit 1099 e-file service, there is no impact this tax season and next tax season it will seamlessly work for all of our tax clients.
  • Recurring Payments (Rebill)
    • While Sync Manager was discontinued May 31st, 2016, the functionality is still available for recurring payments for QuickBooks Desktop 2014 and 2015 as well as QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise 14 and 15.
    • QuickBooks Desktop 2016 and QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise 16 will need to be updated to release R7 (or later) to make use of the new recurring payments functionality that does not utilize Sync Manager.



Why are we discontinuing Sync Manager?

Sync Manager is not using the latest technology. As we continue to increase the number of online applications available to customers, we want to ensure we have the latest and greatest technology. This creates more opportunity for developers and a better customer experience.

How do I get my data?

Your data does not change. It will no longer sync between QuickBooks and the application after March 1, 2016.

Whom should I contact to see if my app is impacted?

If your app is affected, you may have already received an email from your app developer. If you are not sure, contact your developer. We have provided a list of developers and their contact information to help you contact them.
