Create GL Mapping Records to Map System Accounts to QBO Account Numbers

In this section we will be mapping the account numbers from QBO into the GL Mapping Tables in Connectwise. If you are looking to make changes to your Chart of Accounts in QBO, it is recommended that you complete any account changes (including re-numbering), before commencing the GL Mapping in ConnectWise.

There are several considerations when mapping revenue through the GL Accounts Setup Table. If you need assistance or clarification we suggest you review the Getting Started - Connectwise GL Mapping knowledge base articles.
