When you export a Batch to QBO and receive this error, a pop-up will appear.
In the error message, there will be a reference to the entity type that is causing the error to occur.
Once you have determined the entity type and the location of the item, navigate to that item in ServiceTitan.
In the Item Description, cut and paste the text into a character counter to determine the amount of characters.
The maximum character limit allowed within Quickbooks varies depending on the field HERE you can see the maximum character limits Quickbooks allows.
If the character limit is over the maximum, shorten the text to be within the accepted amount by Quickbooks.
