Set Up & Connect Quickbooks Online

MySchoolWorx Set Up Guide for Quickbooks Online

MySchoolWorx (MSW) has partnered with Intuit's Quickbooks Online (QBO) to provide seamless accounting for our schools. Parents can view all QBO accounting activity from within MSW and if a school chooses to use Intuit's Merchant Services, parents can pay from MSW as well. Payments are automatically updated in the accounting program and funds are deposited automatically when they clear. A guide to setting up both of these options is below.

You will first need to purchase and set up Quickbooks Online for your school.

  1. There are different versions of QBO offered by Intuit and MSW will work with all of the business versions. This link will take you version comparison and give you the monthly subscription prices. http://quickbooks.intuit.com/pricing/?#compchart
  2. As you set up QBO, I encourage you to add your parent’s email addresses to their QBO profile. This will speed up the connection process with MySchoolWorx (MSW) and give you the option to email invoices as well.
  3. Once you have completed the QBO set up, contact MSW support and we will help you connect MSW to your new QBO account or you can connect them yourself by following the instructions below in points 1 - 11. Once the connection is complete, parents will be able to see all accounting activity from within MSW.
  4. Connect Quickbooks Online to MySchoolWorx

    7. Map QBO & MSW parent accounts by clicking on the grey bar “Quickbooks Customer Mapping”
    8. Click on the “Suggested Users” bar
