There are four ways you can add customers to your account:
Import from a file (either a CSV spreadsheet you have or from a prior software system)
Import from QuickBooks
Import from contacts
We recommend that you only import from one source, and you should choose whichever source is most up-to-date. That means that if you use QuickBooks and another software system, you should choose to import from the one that was your source of truth. In that case, you can still connect to QuickBooks, just be sure not to import past data from QuickBooks.
Import your customer list from a .CSV file directly into Housecall Pro. If you're coming from another software that is the most up-to-date source for you, or if you do not use QuickBooks, this will be the option for you.

If you are on a MAX plan, you can choose to bring in your customers on your own or email your list in Excel or .CSV format to our import team at firstname.lastname@example.org to have it uploaded for you. If you choose to have our team at Housecall import your customer list, please allow 3-5 business days for it to appear in your database.
Connect and import customers from your QuickBooks account. If you use QuickBooks Online or Desktop as your accounting software AND if it is the most up-to-date source of your customer data, this will be the option for you.
