Move from QBO to QBDT serious limitation/problem

The details of products/services in bills and checks did not come through when the file was converted from online to desktop. Thousands of details are gone. I tracked small asset purchases this way, details are gone. Accruals: gone. Legal fees classified by matter: gone.

Also if you want to download the attachments, get ready to download 50 at a time if you're lucky. QBO on Chrome and IE, and the app cannot handle downloading 150-300 attachments at a time. 

When moving the file from online to desktop be prepared to lose all your details entered in bills/checks using products/services. Make sure you save all the detail reports in QBO.


Nobody including Intuit says it is a seamless transition in either direction

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
