When ServiceTitan exports an entity such as a customer, vendor, invoice, payment, etc, QuickBooks Desktop will assign a unique ID to that entity and return that ID back to Service Titan. ServiceTitan stores that ID as the “remote key.” This is the file path to where the entity (customer, vendor, invoice, payment, etc) is stored in QBD.
