General Ledger Integration

Getting There

In order for the integration with QuickBooks Online to send invoices the setting called "Custom transaction numbers" in QuickBooks Online must be set to "Off". 

You can view and change that setting by going to the settings menu (gear icon), choosing "Account and settings" under YOUR COMPANY. "Custom transaction numbers" is in the "Sales form content" section under "Custom Fields".
