You've made the conscious decision to use QuickBooks in your company. Welcome! We want to give you the tools you need to run your business effectively and easily while also enabling you to constantly monitor its performance. But you might be thinking, "Where do I begin?" Then you should read this article! Actions taken in QuickBooks Online should, as a general rule, correspond to what is actually happening in your account. This holds true for all transactions, including recording sales and making bank deposits. While some actions, like sending invoices, must be taken entirely within QuickBooks, the majority of what you record will involve actions taken elsewhere.
