Refreshing your QuickBooks data in Google Sheets with LiveFlow is super easy, and you even have a couple of different ways to do it, depending on your preferences.
Great to update ALL of your QuickBooks reports simultaneously. Click Refresh All Reports from the LiveFlow menu, and all your reports will update right away.
Great if you are looking for complete automation of your reporting. Instead of clicking on Refresh All Reports yourself, we’ll do it all for you. We will refresh your reports with the latest data from your QuickBooks account(s) every hour. This method is ideal if you want to create real-time dashboards.
Great if you need a little reminder that it’s time to refresh your reports. We will automatically remind you every time you open or reload your spreadsheet.
Want control of each of your QuickBooks reports and when and how they are updated? No problem. Go into your Manage Reports tab, and hit refresh whenever you want a specific report to update in your Google Sheets.
LiveFlow also has a great library of templates, such as free Consolidated Profit & Loss template, Google Sheets Budgets vs Actuals template and a free Marketing P&L template. You can use LiveFlow's Financial Dashboard template for Google Sheets too.
Who likes to waste time on tedious manual work? Very few! That’s why automation is critical, especially between two so frequently used apps like QuickBooks (or QuickBooks Online) and Google Sheets.
Both applications are bread and butter for financial reporting, and each one of them does a core job in making financial management, accounting, and KPI reporting easier.
But while both apps work well in their own ways, connecting data between them can be challenging, and it can end up eating up a lot of valuable hours of work.
Connecting QuickBooks to Google Sheets will allow you to bring key financial reports from QuickBooks into a familiar spreadsheet format like Google Sheets where you can customize and personalize your reports to your or your clients’ specific needs.
You’ll be able to connect vital financial reports like the Profit & Loss Statement, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow, Accounts Payables, and Accounts Receivables in a format that everyone can understand and work together on.
Getting your colleagues to log in to QuickBooks is hard, if not impossible, if they’re not already working in the finance department or at least have a strong sense of how QuickBooks works, and that’s why bringing in your financial reports from QuickBooks to Google Sheets can make your life 10x easier as an accountant or finance manager.
When you import your financial reports from QuickBooks to Google Sheets, you will also benefit from creating custom dashboards on top of your existing reports.
Imagine you import a Profit & Loss report from QuickBooks to Google Sheets, but you only want to look at your Gross Profit. Well, since you have the numbers in your Google Sheet, you can quickly write a formula that takes only your Gross Profit and brings it into another sheet tab and visualize your Gross Profit in there. We have already created custom Google Sheets and Excel Templates that you can download completely free of charge here.
A slight hiccup you often find in the Profit & Loss report you get inside QuickBooks is that it does not contain Gross Margin or Operating Margin.
Those are crucial business metrics to track closely and always watch, but they don’t exist in the QuickBooks P&L report. When you connect QuickBooks to Google Sheets with LiveFlow, you can bring in a P&L and add a Gross Margin row (or any other personalized row that you like) without breaking the report.
Okay, now the question poses - so why on earth connect QuickBooks to Google Sheets with LiveFlow?

Unfortunately, there is no way to connect QuickBooks to Google Sheets directly - without any third-party application, though you can export data from QuickBooks Online Advanced to Google Sheets by following the steps described in the next section. This is the reason why people are seeking for a better solution to integrate Google Sheets with QuickBooks as you are.
If you are a QuickBooks Online Advanced user, you can export your QuickBooks data to Google Sheets as one of functions provided by QuickBooks. When you export data for the first time, ensure that you have a Google account and enable pop-up windows from QuickBooks Online in your web browser settings.
1. Log in to your QuickBooks Online account
2. Navigate to "Business Overview" from the left bar and choose "Reports"
3. Open the report you want to export to Google Sheets
4. Select the "Export to Google Sheets" option from the Export drop-down list
5. You will receive a verification code to confirm your access and identity
6. Enter the verification code that was sent to you
7. Click "Allow" in the pop-up if you review and agree with the permissions information
8. Sign in to Google, once your Google account is open
9. Google Sheets will link to your QuickBooks Online account and allow for data export.
You need to be careful that the data exported in Google Sheets is not linked to the original data in QuickBooks Online. Once the data is exported to Google Sheets, any changes you make in the data will be saved in your Google Drive and will not be reflected in QuickBooks, and vice versa. Also, note that you can't import back your data in Google Sheets to QuickBooks Online.
