How do I temporarily hide archived clients from my Client List?

All users are able to filter archived clients off of their Client List view. You can filter the Client List to show your connected clients only by using the Apply Special Filters tool. Please note this will filter out archived clients as well as Unconnected clients.

This filter will allow you to list all QuickBooks-integrated clients or all Xero-integrated clients on your Client List.

  1. Go to Apply Special Filters > Type

  2. Select which type of clients you'd like to filter for

    1. QuickBooks-integrated

    2. Xero-integrated
