Now that you’ve created and edited a consolidated invoice, it’s time to post it to QuickBooks. This article will walk you through the process.
QuickBooks Subtotal by Project
To post a consolidated invoice to QuickBooks, first make sure the “subtotal by project” setting is selected.
Note: If you’re a QuickBooks Online user, then QuickBooks Online will subtotal by default. So you can skip to the next section.
However, if you’re a QuickBooks Desktop user, then read on to learn how to add this setting. That way, the invoice will have a subtotal for each project on the consolidated invoice. Otherwise, an extra line item will be created for each project acting as a separator.
QuickBooks Desktop users, follow the steps below.
1. Click QUICKBOOKS...INTEGRATION SETTINGS from your navigation bar.
2. Click MANAGE.
3. Click the INVOICING tab.
4. Find the SUBTOTAL ITEM picklist (it’s the last one on the window), and select SUBTOTAL.
5. Click SAVE.
