Sync an Individual Record between Salesforce to QuickBooks

At any time individual records can be synced between Salesforce and QuickBooks from the record in Salesforce. The Accord Sync lightning component displays the status of the synced record and has the option to force a new update to run either from or to QuickBooks.

Sync an Individual Record from Salesforce to QuickBooks

  1. Navigate to the record in Salesforce that will be synced with Quickbooks Online.
  2. On the record click Send to QuickBooks in the QuickBooks Sync component.


  3. Once the record has been sent from Salesforce to QuickBooks the QuickBooks Sync component will update with the status and details of the synced record. If the sync is successful the status indicator for the sync will be green.

    If the record is in error the Status indicator will be red to indicate that the last sync with QuickBooks Online failed. If this occurs click Advanced to open the error log and review the details of the error to identify any updates that are needed to successfully sync the record with QuickBooks. You may also reference the Accord Sync Error Management documentation for common errors.
