Storing your customer info and accounting data side-by-side makes a lot of sense. This is especially true if you run your business out of QuickBooks Online (QBO). But altering multiple fields and editing that data in bulk means using QuickBooks Online to import a CSV with updated data or export a CSV to make changes yourself. This is a fairly simple process and we’ll walk you through the steps for doing this below, but there’s a better way to edit and maintain QuickBooks Online customer data in real-time using SnapDsk’s CSV utility and sync.
If you run your business out of QuickBooks Online, stop and consider where you keep the customer data that’s NOT stored in QBO. No doubt – this information resides in places like Google Contacts, Google Sheets, Google Docs or Microsoft Excel. The better way to manage all of these different data repositories is through SnapDsk. Learn how to use QuickBooks Online attachments with SnapDsk.
SnapDsk’s CSV Utility and real-time QuickBooks Online sync make attaching and syncing customer data in one location a breeze. When you import a CSV into QuickBooks Online, you’re performing a one-time-only action. S
Let’s say you don’t want your company employees having direct access to your QuickBooks Online account, but they also need to make frequent updates to customer info and operational data which is stored in multiple locations. Using SnapDsk, a user can export or import a CSV with customer information and sync all changes in real-time with QuickBooks Online.
If you’re looking to use custom fields to store information associated with customers inside QuickBooks Online, your options are somewhat limited. QBO allows you two fields within “Customers”, while the “Sales” and “Invoices” modules allow you three custom fields.
For some users, this may be enough, but you probably need something more substantial. QuickBooks Desktop users have plenty of options when it comes to custom fields, but QuickBooks Online users require a third-party plugin or an app like SnapDsk to store additional custom fields.
