Evelyn, my apologies for the late response, let's sort out some low-hanging fruits first -
- If none of your companies or a partial list show up, make sure you are using the latest tool, the latest can be downloaded at http://www.intuit.com.au/quickbooks-online/promos/quickbooks-online-conversion-tool.jsp. It's bummer that you will have to enter your information again, we're in a process to make it easier to start the download, a new version of the page should be out there next week. Even if you downloaded recently, my recommendation is to do it again, we do update frequently, and from next release on, the tool will tell you if it's out of date.
- if you happen to have multiple login names with Quickbooks Online, please make sure that you are using the login name which is assigned to the company you want to choose.
- please also make sure you have all the pre-requisites listed in the user guide checked off before starting the tool. this is very unlikely to be your problem but it's always important.
Hope you can get past the problem with this and please let me know if the problem persists or if there's anything else I can help with. you can also use our support channel, our support staff is fully trained on the tool.
People come to QBO Data Import Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:
Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
