What is QuickBooks Online?


Quickbooks Online is a cloud-based financial management software. It's designed to slash the time you spend managing your business finances, by helping you with tasks such as: Creating estimates and invoices. Tracking sales and cash flow.


How it works

When a new Customer is created in Quickbooks online, a matching CompanyCam Project is automatically created and a "Quickbooks Customer" Label will be added to the CompanyCam Project. If you create a new Estimate or Invoice for a customer not yet synced to CompanyCam this will also trigger a new Project.

Invoices and Estimates added in QuickBooks online for this Customer will be available in the Documents section of CompanyCam. You will be able to toggle a permission setting in the setup to allow these invoices or estimates to only be viewed by Users in CompanyCam with Admin or Manager permissions (See setup.)

From there you can check out our Signatures feature to fill these invoices or estimates out directly in CompanyCam. Projects with Invoices will have an additional label “Invoice Attached." Projects with Estimates will have an additional "Estimate Attached" label.

A copy of the link to the CompanyCam Project will be available in the Notes section for that customer in Quickbooks online.

Photo syncing is only available for the higher tiers in QuickBooks Online. Photos won't sync from QuickBooks Online to CompanyCam. Manually syncing is available on both the web and mobile app.
