  12. Click Yes and Continue.

Using the Sync App

The sync app will send data from Revel to QuickBooks Desktop Daily. You must have your QBDT Company file and Sync App open and also be connected to internet for the sync to send data correctly. 

The sync application will send that data automatically each day. You may want to confirm if the sync has happened. To do so, simply open the sync application and check the 'status'. This will show as updated or completed if sync has gone through and will provide the most recent date that was synced. Here's an article on How to Confirm if Sync Occurred

Important Notes

  • You must uninstall the old sync app prior to installing the updated version.
  • The sync app should only be downloaded from your Revel Management Console and no other file should be used.
