The LivePlan Dashboard can be integrated with QuickBooks Online, which makes it easy to import your accounting actuals. This means you won't have to enter your actual numbers into LivePlan manually, your results will stay continually updated, and you'll be able to quickly compare your actuals to your LivePlan forecast.

If you're an accountant and have access to multiple client companies in QuickBooks online, please see this article.
Note: Your actuals from QuickBooks will populate the Dashboard, not the Forecast. You can, however, use this sync process to build a framework for your forecast, and then enter the forecast numbers later.

Getting set up with QuickBooks Online

If you don't have a QuickBooks Online account, you'll need to sign up for one. Then, you'll need to create a QuickBooks Online company for your business. Once you have a QuickBooks account and company set up, you can connect LivePlan to QuickBooks Online.
