Announcing IPP v2.14

Happy New Year! IPP v2.14 is now live and available for Intuit Partner Platform (IPP) partners. This release is another in a series focused on extending developer tools and data services, as well as improving the shopping, buying, and user experience for end customers on Intuit App Center.

IPP v2.14 CONTENTS

1. INTUIT APP CENTER END-USER ENHANCEMENTS

  • Ability to serve customized IPP marketing landing pages from within QuickBooks
    IPP now has the ability to serve customized IPP marketing landing pages from within QuickBooks. Previously, the in-product placements for Intuit App Center took a user to the homepage. All users will now be taken to a landing page that can optionally be customized to the specific QuickBooks industry the user has selected (Finance, Construction, Services, etc.).
    This will present a more appropriate entry point to Intuit App Center from within QuickBooks and allow direct marketing exposure for select applications.
  • 1-Click Sync / Simplified Data Setup
    Starting with QuickBooks 2011 R3 or later, IPP will have the ability to initiate QuickBooks file sync from the checkout process on Intuit App Center. Users with QuickBooks 2011 R3 or later will not need to switch back to QuickBooks from the Intuit App Center web flow to setup file sync. IPP will automatically detect a user starting from within QuickBooks and will launch Sync Manager using a custom protocol handler (quickbooks://).

Please review the release notes for more information on Intuit App Center Enhancements.

2. PLATFORM ENHANCEMENTS

  • Updated IPP Documentation: Static, Searchable Docs
    As an IPP Developer, you can now search the documentation using any external search engine, and all pages are static, wiki pages hosted on developer.intuit.com. These documents were converted from the previous framework that generated the docs dynamically, making them impossible for you to bookmark or for external search engines to index. We’ve also renamed some document titles for greater clarity and brevity. The old documentation will be available through the general Documentation page, but links on the site will point to the new documents.
  • New Confidential Information Role
    We’ve created a new confidential information role. Company tax ID or social security number or Vendor tax ID or social security number will require this permission for viewing. Permission is allowed for Administrators.
  • New Mappings for QBO Data
    The application setup process now includes selections that let you map your application’s roles and permissions to QuickBooks Online roles and permissions.

Please review the release notes for more information on Platform Enhancements.
