Syncing FAQs

Q: Is there a way to retroactively sync all payrolls once I enable auto-sync?

A: Auto-sync will only work for the payrolls moving forward from the time it is set up. Any payrolls run before auto-sync was enabled will need to be manually synced.

Q: What does the timestamp indicate?

A: The exact time Gusto successfully synced a payroll into the accounting software.

Q: Can I re-sync an entry that has already been reconciled?

A: You will need to un-reconcile an entry before you can re-sync it. This includes un-matching any bank transactions with the Journal Entries. QuickBooks Online considers matching as partial reconciliation.
