Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I really need to take this course to learn how to use the FM Books Connector Online plug-in?

    No. In fact, many people have learned how to perform integrations between FileMaker and QuickBooks Online using the FM Books Connector Online plug-in just by using our free tools such as the documentation and demo files. However, this course was created to significantly save you time - especially if you've never done anything like this before. This course will track your progress and train you step-by-step, even if this is your first time using a plug-in. There are a great many people who prefer to learn by way of video training versus reading the documentation​ or reverse engineering demo files. We see this method of training as a growing trend on how people prefer (and now expect) to learn.

  • Does this course cover how to migrate an integration from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online?

    Yes. There is a section that points out the key highlights of the Migration Guide documentation. If you are familiar with QuickBooks desktop integrations, this may be all that is needed to spot the differences. The primary focus of the course is mastering integration with the online version of the plug-in, whether or not you are familiar with the desktop version.
