Method Platform Updates - June 24, 2012

Updated Method Integration Engine for QuickBooks Desktop

The following updates are now available on the version 1.0.206 of the Method Integration Engine.

  • Improvement to customer-level custom fields on transactions - Previously, if a QuickBooks customer-level custom field was entered on a transaction in Method, it would sync successfully to QuickBooks. However, due to recent changes in QuickBooks, the value entered in the custom field was only synced if the customer did not have a default entry in their customer custom field. If the customer had a default value in the custom field it would win. Version 1.0.206 introduces an update that ensures that the custom field entered on a transaction in Method always goes to QuickBooks.
  • Blue icons! -  we're phasing out the brown, and it was the Method Integration Engine's turn. You'll see the Method Integration Engine's icon is now blue.

@d.weigle - This can be updated manually here:

1. Shut down the Method Integration Engine on your desktop.

2. Go to this address:

3. Let it install the update.

Or you can wait until it updates itself. A check is made for updates every 3 times the engine is shut down.
