If I change to the online quickbooks from quickbooks desktop for mac 2016 will the memorized transactions upload to the online qb or will I have to input them one by one?


Thank you for dropping by the Community, tcummings.

The memorized transactions will be uploaded depending on the QuickBooks Online Subscription you're choosing. I'll share some information about that.

If you choose QuickBooks Online Plus and Essentials accounts, both support recurring or memorized transactions. When you import into anything other than those accounts, you will not be able to see recurring transactions.

However, the data will still be imported and when you upgrade to a Plus or Essentials account, you should see your recurring transactions.

On the other hand, if you choose QuickBooks Online Simple Start, this does not support recurring transaction templates. You need to delete all recurring transactions and templates from within QuickBooks Desktop before importing into QuickBooks Online to avoid errors after importing.

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.
