Create Customer Jobs
In Acctivate, users can create customer jobs via the Edit Customer window or link an existing customer. Each job is considered an individual customer which means billing is per job.
Any jobs created in QuickBooks will synchronize to Acctivate as such for use in the sales process. For consolidated billing or statements, print from QuickBooks. Individual job invoices are printed from Acctivate.
When utilizing the customer import utility, the parent is required to be in the system before creating and assigning jobs to it. For further details, check out this training page.
