DOKKA integrates with your accounting software to make moving the data from DOKKA to the financial program a breeze. We have full integrations with some software packages, and partial integrations with others. We pull much of the data directly from your accounting software, such as contacts (vendors, customers, etc), General Ledger Codes, payment accounts, and tax rates (for partial integrations, these can be pre-loaded, but not automatically updated). Most of what's left does not require setting up. DOKKA will learn as you work (Click here to learn how). But there are some settings that make sense to arrange and control above DOKKA's self-learning. You can access these controls in the Settings screen. Click on the Settings cogwheel.

Select the Integrations screen from the menu on the left. If your accounting software isn't already connected, please do so now. You can read this article for help. Click on the arrow to drop down the settings.
