If you have selected Customer Estimate or Customer Invoicing Services, your accountant will add new customer estimates and create invoices from estimates in QuickBooks Online. When your accountant is creating invoices from customer estimates they may not have enough information to find the estimate to convert into an invoice. Copies of customer quotes or contracts should be uploaded into a folder within your secure document upload portal. Your accountant will send you notifications requesting estimate information that will show up on your client dashboard. You will select existing estimates from a list and enter new estimate information into a form directly within the request on your client dashboard.

Some Entry Fields are Required, While Others are Optional
