If you’re going to use QuickBooks items for activity based job-costing, you must create at least one item or sub-item in QuickBooks for each activity in Chronicle. For example, if you have an activity in Chronicle for painting, you must also have an item (or sub-item) in QuickBooks for painting. The name of the item in QuickBooks can match the name of the activity in Chronicle, but it doesn’t have to.
- In QuickBooks, click Item in the icon bar.
You can also click the Lists menu and pick Item List there.
- Add at least one item for each of your activities in Chronicle.
To add an item, either type ctrl N, or click Item at the bottom of the screen and then pick New from the menu.
You can have more than one item or sub-item for each activity if you wish; you can associate as many items as needed with any activity in Chronicle.
You may want to print the list of our standard activities to make sure that you set up all of the items that you need.
