Once you begin using Buildern as your primary software for all construction project-related tasks, utilizing cost codes becomes fundamental in every document shared through the platform.

First, ensure you have already connected your Buildern and Quickbooks accounts through the accounting integration.

Once the connection is enabled, go to the cost codes section.

1. Log in to your Quickbooks account in a new window

Ensure you have up-to-date credentials to access your Quickbooks account.

2. Choose Quickbooks to begin syncing
