Hello, I would like to integrate an Airtable workspace to QuickBooks Desktop (2021), not online. I need automate the creation of multiple sales receipts. Does anyone know how to set up this integration?
Hi Ana, and welcome to the community!
Yes, and by “know”, I know that it’s not simple or effortless.
The desktop version of QuickBooks has an API, but it’s very complex and message-based meaning that you’d have to create a local app to listen for the messages and act accordingly. The best you can do in this case is to manually copy and paste or craft a Goldbergian-like menagerie of reports emailed to Zapier and uploaded into Airtable. It’s a mess.
And if you happen to upgrade to QuickBooks Online, it’s not much better but I suspect some like @Cherry_Yang2 might be able to help.
Thanks Bill for the callout!
We work with clients on QuickBooks Online only at the moment. It’s often a delicate set up even with QBO so we unfortuantely don’t work with QuickBooks Desktop right now.
