UPDATE: Intuit has heard the feedback about the broken link with Timeslips, and has responded by issuing the following generic message:
“We want to share the latest update about the Revoked Certificate issue you reported.
“This happened because a Symantec Root Certificate, used in the development of applications was revoked. This made many certificates invalid including some used by Intuit apps, such as Timeslips.
“QuickBooks only lets applications with valid certificates access your company data, for the highest security. This may have looked like a QuickBooks issue, but it’s actually the software detecting invalid certificates and blocking access to company data.
“Intuit has released patches for supported versions of QuickBooks that will update the certificate for the QuickBooks Web Connector. This will resolve syncing issues with Intuit apps.
“It may take time for this change to automatically take effect on your computer. “
Here is the background as to how this flaw revealed itself:
QuickBooks Desktop software links with third-party applications (such as Timeslips) via “certificates”, which are issued by Intuit, the owners of QuickBooks. Those certificates have expiration dates. The QuickBooks security certificates which work with Timeslips “Build” number 184.108.40.206 and lower expired on August 23, 2023. Timeslips users can check their build number by selecting About Timeslips… from the main dropdown menu, which opens a window that displays the build number for the installed version.
