QBO Sandbox Configuration


Time to meet your finance team!

All of the below configuration is optional and whether you choose to enable a feature or not will depend on what your finance team is using in production.

Now would be a great time to get to know the team you're working with and work together to configure this sandbox according to your needs.

Account and Settings is the primary area for configuring your accounting software (it's in the gear icon in the top right corner)
