How do Customers and Sub Customers sync? 

In QuickBooks there is a hierarchy of clients. You can sync certain information to Jobber:



  • Title, First Name, Last Name, and Company name all go over to Jobber in their respective fields, but the Display Name field will overwrite data in the other fields. 
    • If the display name is different than the First name or Last name fields, then Jobber will bring it over as a Company Name. 


  • Email, Phone, and Mobile fields go over to Jobber in their respective fields:



  • Once a client is in sync, the Billing Address can only be updated in QuickBooks:



In Jobber, we can sync over sub-customers from QuickBooks, given that two fields are properly filled out in QuickBooks on the sub-customer:

  • The checkbox beside Is sub-customer must be marked, and the Parent Client must be selected from the drop down below. 
    • You can sync 1 level below a Parent customer, so a sub-customer cannot have it's own sub-customer.
  • Shipping address information must be filled in the sub-customer's profile in QuickBooks for it to sync across as a property in Jobber. 
    • This address needs to be different from the Billing address or Jobber will not sync this as a different property


Can Jobber Sync Invoices and Payments onto Sub-Customers in QuickBooks?

No, Jobber can only sync invoices and payments to the main/parent client in QuickBooks.

If a payment has been collected in Jobber and not applied to an Invoice, it will Sync to QuickBooks as an Unapplied Payment. Unapplied payments occur when a Deposit or Payment has been manually inputted through the Billing History box on a Client page.
