5 Steps for setting up the integration between AutoEntry and Sage 50 CA

Because AutoEntry is cloud-based and Sage 50 Canadian Edition is installed locally, the AutoEntry Sync App needs to be downloaded and installed for the two solutions to communicate. Here is a summary of the main steps to configure the integration:

  1. In Sage 50 CA's Setup > Set Up Users & Roles menu, create a user for AutoEntry with read/write access and full accounting rights.
    • TIP: Your default sysadmin username must have a password set before you can select Add User
  2. Download and install the AutoEntry Sync App.
  3. Open the AutoEntry Sync App and log in with your AutoEntry log in details.
  4. Pick the AutoEntry company that you would like to connect.
  5. Browse to the location of your Sage 50 company and enter the username and password configured in step 1 to connect to AutoEntry. 

Important Notes for using Sage 50 CA with AutoEntry:

  • With the Pro edition of Sage 50, ensure Sage 50 is closed before completing the connection or when publishing invoices through to Sage from AutoEntry.
  • With the Premium Edition or higher, ensure that you have switched to multi-user mode. 

More information is available here. AutoEntry will help customers during an onboarding and will provide support for the integration.
