With the update of a new code signing certificate in the Qvinci Sync Client the QuickBooks Application may prompt some users to reauthorize their QuickBooks Desktop file connection to Qvinci.
This reauthorization is not a new link process which would affect existing SCoA mappings. It simply establishes continued authorization for syncing.
If a user sees the QuickBooks Application Certificate appear when trying to sync their QuickBooks Desktop file to Qvinci they should follow the steps below.
If the user is not a QuickBooks Administrator then please instruct them to not reauthorize access. Instead have the user reach out to the file’s QuickBooks Administrator to open the file, sync it, and reauthorize Qvinci access to the QuickBooks file.
Once signed into QuickBooks, make sure the file is in Single-user Mode. In order to do this, click on File and look for the option to Switch to Single-user Mode, as pictured below.
Note: If the pictured option says "Switch to Multi-user Mode," then this means you are already in Single-user Mode; if this is the case, skip to the next step.
Reauthorize the Qvinci Sync Client certificate
This is a one-time process per file:
Step 1. From the system tray (lower-right corner, near your clock) launch the Qvinci Sync Client
Step 2. If the version is requiring an update, then the Qvinci Sync Client should undergo an auto-update momentarily.
Step 3. After updating, the user may open the QuickBooks file (be sure to log in as Admin), open the Qvinci Sync Client, and from the Sync Client tab called In-File Sync they will click the Sync button.
Step 4. If the progress bar does not begin for syncing, check if QuickBooks is giving you an Application Certificate to authorize. If there is a certificate to reauthorize, QuickBooks will flash orange in the task bar.
Step 5. The Application Certificate will require the below authorizations. Note that if multiple user logins exist for QuickBooks, the user will also need to select Admin as the user who is authorizing.
Step 6. After Done is selected on the second prompt, the file will sync to Qvinci.
Step 7. This process should be repeated for each QuickBooks file needing to sync as the Application Certificate is file-specific.
Accidently Filled Out the Certificate As "No"
If someone accidentally filled out the Application Certificate as "No" and the application fails to sync, it can still be reauthorized without linking the file again and breaking SCoA mappings.
The required steps are:
Step 1. Open the QuickBooks file as Admin and migrate to Edit > Preferences > Integrated Applications.
Step 2. From the Company Preferences tab checkmark any Qvinci Sync program that appears on the center screen. Ensure the box stating "Notify the user before running any application whose certificate has expired" is not checked. Uncheck it if this is so. Then press Save.
Step 3. Go back to Step 3 above and repeat the process. The QuickBooks Certificate should appear for authorization again.
