Change Orders to QuickBooks Estimate

When you compare two Revisions, you can choose to export the changes to a new QuickBooks Estimate or to an existing QuickBooks Estimate. Changes that are made to a Project after the initial Estimate has been created in QuickBooks can be exported to a QuickBooks Estimate.



On the Project Compare Editor, there is a QuickBooks tab that will allow you to export a new QuickBooks Estimate or add to an existing QuickBooks Estimate:

Note: You can only push over a "Change Order" to a new QuickBooks Estimate if the net value of the Change Order is positive. If the net value is negative, your only option is to push the "Change Order" to an existing Estimate. You will get the following warning if you attempt to push a negative "Change Order" to a new QuickBooks Estimate:
