HelpSpot Integration - Quickbooks times/accounts



I want to link HelpSpot to Quickbooks accounting for client sync and time & materials billing.

I don’t know if this has been done already but searches did not find a reference.

Best regards,
David Stirrup


Hi David,

I’m not aware of it having been done, at least I have not seen any code to do it. This should technically be possible, however, I’m not familiar with the Quickbooks API’s.

If you don’t need true real time lookups then one option might be to export the contacts from QB to a flat file. You could then keep that file on the server and have a script which accepts the Live Lookup calls that parses that file and returns results.

This may be a bit simpler especially if the QB API is tricky or if QB is hosted on a local machine and not a server.
