    2. Navigate to Advanced settings

    3. Toggle the button on for Add budget and variance columns

    4. Click Update and refresh report

  2. The next step will be to export your Budget data from QuickBooks

    1. Log in to your QuickBooks Account and Click into Reports

    2. Find the Budget Overview Report by searching or looking under Business Overview

    1. Check that the Report Period and the Budget are corresponding to the Report/Template you created in LiveFlow

    1. Export your budget data to a spreadsheet

  3. The 3rd step will be to copy and paste your budget data into the Budget column(s) in your LiveFlow Report/Template

    1. The Variance columns will automatically update based on what is input into the budget columns!
