    This is a great article! One other thing to note is that there are many third party appiciatlons (eg payroll, e-commerce etc.) that only integrate with the desktop versions of QuickBooks and not QuickBooks Online. The reason for this is that only the desktop products of QuickBooks include the legacy IIF import which is less time consuming for developers to integrate with as well as there are many more users currently on the QuickBooks desktop products. Hopefully, with the recent addition of the Intuit Anywhere platform it will make it easier for other software companies to integrate with QuickBooks Online but only time will tell.
