Summary:
When transferring data using Web TimeSheet Integration Manager for QuickBooks, field mappings need to be created between fields in Web TimeSheet to appropriate fields in QuickBooks. This mapping is very important for successful transfer of data. Whenever you do a successful transfer of time and expense or any other data between Web TimeSheet and QuickBooks it is recommended to save the field mappings by exporting them to a .qbi file. This could be very helpful in situations when you have lost the mappings for some reason.

Steps to export export the configuration file of QuickBooks integration manager:

  • From the side menu, select Configuration Files.
  • Click Export to save your settings to a file.
  • Choose the location where you'd like the file saved.
  • Enter a file name in the field provided, and select Save.
  • If you don't include the .qbi extension, it will be added to the files name when it is saved.
  • Later when you need to import the field mappings launch "Web TimeSheet Integration Manager for QB" and use the steps given here:
  • From the side menu, select Configuration Files.
  • Click Import to use the settings saved in a file.
  • Find and select the file you want to import.
  • Click Open.

Note:
Versions of QBI which support configuration files are 2.x and 5.x.
The 2.x configuration files are not compatible with 5.x configuration files.
