You can sync on a regular schedule, or you can sync when you need to. This article provides instructions on how to set the schedule or initiate an unscheduled sync.
Your QuickBooks data is synced with your Intuit online services on a regular schedule, or you can disable the regular syncs and only sync when you need to.
If you have the Intuit Sync Manager enabled and syncing on your machine, you can specify the sync frequency or initiate an unscheduled sync at any time.
To set or disable the automatic sync frequency
Open the Intuit Sync Manager. Where can I find it?
Click Edit Sync Options
To set the regular sync schedule, click Automatically sync data every, then click the drop-down arrow and select the desired frequency.
To turn off the automatic syncs, click Don't turn on automatic sync. I'll sync manually. You can still initiate unscheduled syncs at any time.
To initiate an unscheduled sync
Click Start Sync Now.
Note that doing an unscheduled sync doesn't change the time for the next scheduled sync.
