Importing data to and from the Desktop Edition of QuickBooks requires installing the QuickBooks Web Connector which is published by Intuit. Ask your ArborGold Trainer or an ArborGold support technician to help you install and configure the Web Connector. It is required that the web connector be open and running when you perform data exports from ArborGold Cloud to QuickBooks.
