My Time Entries Export to Quickbooks Desktop Without a Description


  • Why do some of my time entries export to Quickbooks Desktop without my description?


  • Clio Manage
  • Quickbooks Desktop

Additional Information:



Only the Activity Category on time entries will transfer over to the description field in Quickbooks’ invoices. The description after an Activity Category name on a bill or in a time entry will not come through. They will only go through when there is no Activity Category being used. Line items with no Activity Descriptions will be entirely blank.


  • Do not use an Activity Category
  • Rename your Activity Category to reflect what you would like to see in Quickbooks Desktop
