What are QBO classes?
QuickBooks users can assign classes to track and categorize their transactions. After creating a class, QBO users can assign this class to any of their transactions. Although a class can be anything, common ones are location, department, project, product lines, and more. For more information on classes, see this article from intuit. To enable classes on QBO, see this article.
What is new with QBO classes and ServiceBridge?
QBO classes sync with ServiceBridge, which allows users to track their classed transactions on both systems. QBO classes can be found in the Invoices and Refunds section of ServiceBridge.
How to use Classes on QBO and ServiceBridge
The class will appear differently in ServiceBridge Depending on the type of class you create in QBO. The two types of classes you can enable are:
- One to Each Row in Transaction: Here, every item that can be invoiced—on your Products, Services, and Bundles—will be given a class. The class will be listed under the Invoice Items section of the ServiceBridge Invoice record.
[As highlighted above, when the class setting is "One to Each Row in a Transaction," this information will be found in your ServiceBridge invoice record, under "Refund item," and will be organized per item]
- One to Each Transaction: Here, the entire invoice will be assigned a class. The class information will be available in the “General” section of the invoice record.
[As highlighted above, when the class setting is "One to Each Transaction," this information will be found in your ServiceBridge Invoice record, under "Other Information"]
QBO classes will also appear in ServiceBridge under refunds. This information can be find in the General tab in the Refunds section.
