If you are a QuickBooks user, you can track time with Fanurio and then import it in QuickBooks to bill your clients. Fanurio can export time to an .iif file that can then be imported by QuickBooks Pro.
Before you can export time from Fanurio for QuickBooks Pro, you need to make some settings for the import to go smoothly. You can make these settings by hand or you can use a wizard to make them automatically. We highly recommend that you use the wizard as it can save you a lot of time.
In both cases, you will need an .iif file that has to be exported from QuickBooks. Make sure QuickBooks Pro is running and go to(TimerList.iif) to export the file that will be used to configure Fanurio.
A. Automatic setup

See this section to learn how to export time to an *.iif file that can be imported by QuickBooks Pro.
Here's how to import time in QuickBooks Pro from an .iif file:
Make sure QuickBooks is running
We strongly recommend backing up your QuickBooks data before doing your first import.
Find the exported .iif file on your computer and select it for import.
If QuickBooks warns you that the import file was created with an older version, click OK (Fanurio can't guess which version of QuickBooks you are running).
A small timer window will open showing the results of the import. Click "View Report" to verify your time data was imported correctly.
Close the status window and you are done!
