Why Can't We back this up?

As a third party application on your QuickBooks Online account there are certain pieces of information deemed too sensitive, or too complex to provide us access to. Some things, like your bank feed, are restricted to us because of the secure nature of banking institutions.

Generally speaking however - if we cannot back it up according to this list the reason is simply because Intuit has not given us permission to access it.

If you have concerns or questions please don't hesitate to reach out to us at help@rewind.io
