Pipeline to create a new Project in Quickbooks

I am not seeing much online on how to create a New Project with an existing Customer using a pipeline.  
We already have it set to create a new customer in Quickbooks when a new record is created in Quickbase; but I am not finding a way to add a new Project with our Job Number in it. 

Any advice? 

Thank you!

    In Pipelines, the JSON Handler channel is your key to leveraging any other parties' API that isn't part of a channels' standard workflows.  It looks like the project/job creation isn't a standard workflow in the Quickbooks Online pipelines channel, but their QB API Guide does show that it's possible to create one via an API.  

    Admittedly, I haven't worked with Quickbooks Online (only enterprise desktop on our servers) so my advice on exact actions/code is pretty limited, but I have leveraged the JSON Handler to do some non-standard actions thru Dropbox and it produced pretty darn awesome results.

  • Hi Jennifer,

    I don't use Quickbooks and Pipelines together myself but in our help doc we do have a section on How to use QuickBooks Online Projects in a pipeline. It goes through the steps to turn on Projects for that feature, does that help with what you are looking for?
