First, ensure that the customer is set up in QuickBooks and then perform a sync. This will bring into GovBooks all customers that you have set up in QuickBooks. GovBooks will only import the customer name from QuickBooks. Set up in QuickBooks will only require the entry of a customer name.
To create a customer in QuickBooks, open your QuickBooks software and click on the “Customer” menu item and add the customer by entering a Company Name and then click “Ok”. This is the only information you will need to enter in QuickBooks to be imported into GovBooks.
