Data Dear is no longer be available to users outside of QBO. Late 2021 Data Dear was acquired by Intuit. I’ve spoken to the Intuit and the Data Dear team. The solution has been built into QBO Advanced, so it’s no longer available to external users. If you are on QBO Advanced I guess it is business as usual. If you are not then you can either move your accounting software to QBO Advanced, or change from Data Dear to another extension.

Data Dear was a tool that connected your accounting software to Google Sheets. So you had the accounting data you wanted in the spreadsheets that you loved!

G-Accon connects Xero, QuickBooks and FreshBooks with Google Sheets  (They are offering  training and support through the migration. G-Accon is based out of Michigan and founded by Andrey Kustarnikov. Here’s a video of how their solution works:

EXL Cloud. Based out of Melbourne, Australia, founded by Lance Rubin, who was a big fan of the Data Dear and Xero integration, is developing a solution that connects Xero with Microsoft Excel. It is to support his client base, who are no longer able to use Data Dear. It is currently in beta, and you can access it here: You can see in this image he is demonstrating Data Dear.

dataSights founded by Kevin Wiegand, in my home town of Brisbane, dataSights will allow you to connect your Xero data, and your DataHub to Excel, Power BI and GSheets. It is a bespoke offering for those in need of a bigger more robust solution.

If you are looking at your Data Dear options hopefully this is useful and all makes sense.
