Connecting Quickbooks Online to Uptick


  • If you've disconnected an integration and wish to reconnect it, simply follow the same steps from the start again and it'll automatically link back up with your previous setup.

  • You can also link multiple Accounting Organisations on the Accounting Integration page by clicking one of the accounting partner icons and following the prompts. With such a setup you will still have one default Accounting Organisation that most Billing Cards and Invoices connect to. The remaining Accounting Organisations will need to be explicitly specified on the Billing Cards that will be using them.

Billing Cards

Make sure that billing cards are connected to your accounting partner or it won't invoice successfully. You can can either view the billing card against a client, or go to Billing > Billing Cards then click on Change columns and check that Partner UID is a visible column. Any empty spaces in that column indicates a billing card that is not connected to an accounting partner. This also applies to People > Suppliers if you want check that your suppliers are connected.


Editing invoices/billing cards after they have been synced

Once billing cards have been hooked up to the accounting partner, it becomes locked to the accounting partner end, so you will need to make changes from the accounting partner side once connected.

Classes (Tracking categories in Uptick)

Like other tracking categories, classes will appear in cost centres, where you can select your tracking class from the drop-down list. Cost centres will need to be set against the task in order for the invoicing to be tracked.

  1. Click on the cog, then Account and settings
