Journal Entry Import Window

Timesheet Import Window
*Please note, your window might have different columns based upon the File Mapping you selected.

Within the Journal Entry Import Window, there is grid showing all the journal entry(s) in the import file. Any of the values for the journal entries may be updated through drop-downs or typing information. If the description of the items (account, class, name) in the Journal Entry do not match QuickBooks, create a one-time mapping which will translate the description going forward.

Once all the information has been set for the Journal Entry to be imported, click the Import into QuickBooks button. The Journal Entry will be imported. If there is an error with an entry, the time entry will be marked in red. Click the Status cell for that time entry to get details.Fix the error and attempt the import again which will only import the ones with errors.
