Integrating Atlas with QuickBooks (Online Version)


Integrating Atlas with your QuickBooks system allows you to easily keep the two applications in sync with each other. Once connected, Atlas will be your system of record for revenue transaction detail, and QuickBooks will remain your overall accounting package.

Connecting the two systems is a three-part process:

  1. Configuring an Accounting Package in Atlas or QuickBooks
  2. Authorizing Atlas as a system that is allowed to push information to QuickBooks
  3. Importing your Account Codes from QuickBooks Online to Atlas

Once these steps are completed, Atlas will have the ability to post Summary Journal Entries into QuickBooks, so that both systems share the information.

Note: The steps below walk you through the process of integrating Atlas to the Online version of QuickBooks.  If you are a QuickBooks desktop version user, please click here for separate instructions.

To integrate your Atlas database with QuickBooks Online, you will need your QuickBooks administrative login credentials and have administrative access in your Atlas database. Once you set up the integration, you can import your chart of accounts and set up your Revenue Codes to begin posting summary journal entries from Atlas to QuickBooks Online.
