We have not been able to sync with Quickbooks for the past 4 days. I tried to reset Quickbooks but no luck getting the sync to work. The latest message has been "Could not retrieve data from Quickbooks"
Hi @Mark_Ferchland Welcome to the Expensify Community!
I see this is underway with our support team, and it's quite complex, so I'll update this public thread once we have a resolution!
any update? I am having the same issue for a month. i have reset the connect with sync manager and QB. still getting same error message. I think it is an issue with the customers. When the customer tags were not enabled I did not get an error. Then when I enabled the customer tag in expensify to sync them I get the error and the customer/jobs do not sync from QB. This is hindering our operations. Please help.
I'm having the same issue? Any clue or insight as to how to fix the syncing? This is the error message I get.
Hi @dlt I apologise for missing this - were you able to get your issue resolved?
@Omartinez can you try the following and if it doesn't work, you'll need to write into [email protected], as they have access to more troubleshooting tools, there!
To reset the permissions for your QuickBooks Desktop connection, first, sign into QuickBooks as an Admin in single-user mode and go to Edit > Preferences > Integrated Applications > Company Preferences. From there, remove any instance of "Expensify Sync Manager" that you see listed. Save this change and click "Ok" to close the dialog box. Next, try to sync your policy again in Expensify. You'll be prompted to re-authorize the connection in QuickBooks.
Let me know how this goes!
No we have not resolved this issue yet. I was told that it had something to do with expensify timing out when trying to load out customer list. It started a whole year ago (aug 2018). I tried many times what you suggest in this post. Linking was not the problem. The customer list was the problem. I was told expensify can't do it and to just create a manual sync. So for a year we have been doing manual sync unfortunately. I have asked monthly if the expensify QB sync has been improved/fix and was told it is in the works. Do you have any update on that? If it has been fixed I could try to setup the sync again. The only problem is that if it does not work I have to start all over again with tags, customers, settings, etc. So it is a long process. Thanks for your help.
@dlt Because each QuickBooks Desktop error is unique and requires our team to check the logs from the Expensify Sync Manager, I recommend reaching out to [email protected] There is likely going to be information we don't recommend sharing on a public forum.
The same error message can be the result of multiple different errors in the logs. If the main troubleshooting steps aren't clearing the error then Concierge is your best option for troubleshooting.
@dlt You're very welcome. Let me know if you are able to get it resolved!
dlt where you able to get a resolution for this? We are a relatively new user of Expensify and after 4 months I was unable to update my expensify account from QuickBooks Enterprise 19.0. After a month of waiting for a repair the final answer I received was my customer and item lists were too large.
