Do you support product names with colons?
Parent child products have a colon
What does a colon represent in QuickBooks?
In QuickBooks, you can have a parent and child product. QuickBooks calls the product parent:child. Here is an example:
In QuickBooks, the name is Pants:Jeans:
Should my products contain a colon?
We recommend removing colons from your product names. If the product already exists, Connex will locate it by the QuickBooks item name. Using the example, just enter the SKU jeans. Connex will add Pants:Jeans to QuickBooks.
Having a colon is a bad practice. Connex makes no new items, if they contain colons and Connex assumes the item already exists.
