Printable Versions & Attachments


 Depending on your existing integrated accounting system, Tallie will either allow or disallow you to switch to a new integration. This guide will outline:
 

Switching to and from Archive

If your integrated accounting system is currently set to Archive AND you have not synced with Bill.com, you will be able to change the integration settings to QuickBooks for Windows, Quickbooks Online, Intacct or Xero. 

If your accounting system is set to Archive AND you have synced with Bill.com, you will be restricted from changing the integration settings. 

 
  • Note: If you have manually uploaded list data in your Tallie account, this data will populate in the accounting system you choose to integrate with unless the spelling of each record (employee, project, customer, account, etc) matches identically to the existing record in your accounting system. Any list data (employees, projects, customers, accounts, etc) that exists in Tallie but does not exist in your new accounting system will be added to the new accounting system. To avoid this risk, reach out to Tallie Support to create a new account. 

You will always be able to change the accounting system from QuickBooks for Windows, Quickbooks Online, Intacct or Xero to Archive






Switching between QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop

Tallie will allow you to change from QuickBooks Online to QuickBooks Desktop, and vice versa. However, when doing so, please confirm that all of the record data (employee, project, customers, account, etc) is identical. Record data can be truncated (shortened) when switching from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online.

If your data (People, Projects, Customers, etc) is truncated in QuickBooks Online, you can either update the record in Tallie to match the truncated version in QuickBooks Online or update the record in QuickBooks Online to match the spelling in Tallie. 

To update the record in Tallie:

 
  • Before syncing with QuickBooks Online, navigate to Integration & Sync: Sync Settings
  • Set the Accounting Software to Archive (This will disable the sync with Quickbooks Desktop)
  • Update the records in Tallie to match the truncated version in QuickBooks Online
  • Cross check the data in each system to confirm the data is spelled exactly the same
  • Navigate to Integration & Sync: Sync Settings page
  • Set the Accounting Software to QuickBooks Online
  • Click “Connect to QuickBooks Online”


To update the record in QuickBooks Online:

  • In QuickBooks Online, edit the truncated data to match how the record is spelled in Tallie
  • Cross check the data to confirm the spelling is identical
  • In Tallie, navigate to the Integration & Sync: Sync Settings page
  • Set the Accounting Software to QuickBooks Online
  • Click “Connect to QuickBooks Online”


Conflicting Integrations

Tallie will prevent you from switching the Accounting Software between the following integrations:

  • QuickBooks Online to Intacct or Xero
  • QuickBooks Desktop to Intacct or Xero
  • Intacct to QBO, QBD or Xero
  • Xero to Intacct, QBO or QBD



If you wish to change your integrated accounting system to a conflicting integration, please reach out to Tallie Support.
