NOTE 1: The import process should be run each time new data is entered into QuickBooks.

NOTE 2: Hour Timesheet does not allow Customer/Jobs, Service Items, Classes or Vendor data to be added through the Hour Timesheet software. You must add the data to your QuickBooks company file first to sync the data.  Hour Timesheet does allow for employee data to be created using the software but these employees WILL NOT sync timesheet data back into your QuickBooks file.
