This software makes perfect sense!

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: I'm able to publish multiple company financials, and custom metrics in a google sheet. Once setup it just works. My clients are excited about the possibilities.

Pros:

Built right in the Google Work/Google Sheet ecosystem. If you love Google Sheets (we do!) this tool works seamlessly, no issues syncing, all the time. The UI is clear and super easy to follow. Very clean and fast. Multiple QuickBooks Online Files pointing to one spreadsheet is fab for our Entrepreneur clients with multiple entities. If you have any clients with multiple QuickBooks Online files, this tool will save you time by pushing all data into one cloud friendly space.

Cons:

Wish I was smart enough to have created this software.

Revolutionary Feature That Streamlines Data-Entry Procedures in Real-Time

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: This is a wonderful tool that streamlined my data-entry processes by 100%! I thoroughly enjoy the features, customizable reports, and real-time data that LiveFlow provides. I haven’t seen a feature like this in the industry so it is surely a game changer!

Pros:

LiveFlow is a feature that is incredibly easy to install and access in Google Sheets. I was able to connect my QuickBooks account to LiveFlow within minutes and it pulled all of my clients’ transaction data. I enjoyed the customization features for the reports, such as, date range, report type, display columns, which is incredibly helpful for accountants. I manage clients from various industries so it is very helpful to customize their reports based on their reporting needs (ex: e-commerce businesses and inventory reporting). I believe one of the best features of this product is the fact that data is updated in REAL TIME! In the past, I was used to downloading reports every time there are new transactions;however, LiveFlow eliminated this problem. It saved my time spent on data-entry and instead I can focus my efforts on analysis! I’m looking forward to seeing further updates about this tool!

Cons:

I wish I could link other softwares/banks as well. I worked in real estate and we did not use QuickBooks. If LiveFlow allows accessibility to other accounting platforms, such as MRI and Yardi, I believe the company can appeal to a greater market and more users can benefit from this feature!

Great tool to speed up our month-end reporting

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Saving time on manually importing our accounting data to our spreadsheets.
Can highly recommend it for Finance Teams who wants to speed up their workflows

Pros:

It's really easy to install and connect it with my Google Sheet. When I set it up I could import my accounting data within a couple of minutes and everything was really easy to figure out. I now use it on a weekly basis to automatically bring our accounting data together for our management reports.

Cons:

- I am looking forward to getting access to bank integrations as well, that would be a tremendous help. - Sometimes it can be a little slow (I've seen this with other Google Sheets plugins as well)

Really LOVING Live Flow - It makes my job as an accountant easier!

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I honestly LOVE this add-on! Xero already had the ability to export report like this to Google Sheets and it has made my life so much easier with the analysis that I provide my clients. Now that I can easily do this in Quickbooks with this simple add-on, I feel like I’m in heaven. I really like being able to manipulate the reports from Quickbooks in google Sheets, but Quickbooks has never provided a process for this to be super easy. Sure, you can export to Excel, then upload to Google Sheets. But what about those people who don’t want to (or can’t) pay for the subscription to get Excel? This add-on really just makes it so much easier. You get used to the way that a program gives you reporting, then find something like this add-on and you feel like you’ve made it to heaven.

Pros:

This add-on makes my analysis process for my clients a breeze now with a simple import button. I can import the reports by several different time frames, show the columns by different periods (the day is super helpful for ecommerce businesses), and even by vendors, suppliers, accounts. These are all super helpful for the clients I currently work with and the analysis process I provide to my clients. I can connect more than one company to the add-on and then it’s just there for me to open a report for a different company when I need that report, instead of having to install the whole thing multiple times. When I run a live report vs just importing it, every time I open the report, and I’m guessing the same is true if I just share the link to my client, the report will be updated with the most recent information or any changes that have been made to the reports. This is a gamechanger.

Cons:

How the negative numbers are reflected in the spreadsheet. You really have to look at them to see. The negative sign is right against the dollar sign. Yes I can easily change the formatting myself in the spreadsheet, but it may be easier if this is something that can be changed in the report coding. Usually in accounting, the negatives are shown in red.

An absolute time saver

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: We are saving 3-4 hours a week and we are able to get a real-time overview of our financial position

Pros:

As a founder, I still manage our finances myself mostly and LiveFlow is a great tool to help me get our financial data into our Google Sheet without downloading CSV files and manually importing/exporting files. We can now get an up-to-date view of our finances on a weekly basis, as opposed to a monthly basis, and it's really helpful to help us plan better.

Cons:

We are still lacking some other integrations to bring all our financial data together such as our bank account and payment platform
