How to Import Rho Data into Quickbooks Desktop


You’ve just started using Rho to automate your finance stack and you are now looking to transfer all your data and transactions into Quickbooks Desktop. 

First Step: Download Rho data in a CSV format

Before we start, we’ll need to download your data. This is as easy as clicking Export CSV, selecting a date range, and any additional attributes (columns) you want represented in your CSV.



The Export CSV option is available on the Rho web app wherever relevant. Once you’ve made your selections, you will receive a local copy of the data.
