Connecting to Sage 50 US
All of the tasks in this connector require a connection to Sage 50 US, so you will need to create a connection with the type 'Sage 50 US'. See Managing Connections for instructions on creating a new connection. You will see a screen like the one below, requesting your Sage 50 US details:
Enter your Sage 50 US details as described below, then click 'Finish' to create the connection.
The first time Zynk connects to Sage 50 US you will get a message stating that Zynk needs to be authorised to access your data. To do this, open Sage 50 US, sign in to the company, and allow access when prompted. You will then be able to use the connection within Zynk.
If your Sage 50 US data is stored the same machine that Zynk is installed on, this field can be left blank. If the data is on another machine on the network, you will need to enter its name.
