The following table shows the data that is shared with Order Time when it syncs with your accounting system. Entities are synced directionally, meaning that changes can be made in either program. Transactions, other than payments, are one-way, meaning that transactions entered into your accounting system WILL NOT sync with Order Time. During the initial sync, you may import open purchase orders and if applicable open sales orders.

The items marked Optional above depends on whether you sync inventory items with you accounting system. See setting.
There is a two way sync for Entities but transactions are synchronized from Order Time to accounting but not visa versa. E.g. changes you make in accounting to a customer will be updated in Order Time. An invoice created in accounting will NOT come over to Order Time.
1. QuickBooks payments are bi-directional to the extent that they relate to an Order Time Ship Doc or Customer Return.
2. Customers and Vendors are collectively Contacts in Xero
3. Customer and Vendor Types are combined in Xero.
