So, you want to know how to setup user access in QuickBooks? If your bookkeeping was ever done manually, then one thing is for sure… You probably did not allow every employee to see every sales form, account register, and payroll stub.

For instance, there may be times when someone pulls the wrong file folder and sends a report containing confidential information. So now that you understand why this is so important, let’s get on with how to setup user access in QuickBooks.

QuickBooks helps prevent this by setting virtual boundaries. You can specify which features of the software is accessible by employees who work with your accounting data. Each employee receives a unique user name and password that unlocks only the areas he or she should be visiting.

To help minimize errors, maintain data integrity, and preserve confidentiality, QuickBooks lets you restrict users to designated areas in the software.

Most small businesses are a long way from being “paperless offices,” despite the predictions so many people made when PCs became commonplace. Even though you’re making an effort to be as digital as possible with your accounting files, not everyone else is yet. So you still have to deal with paper.

QuickBooks makes it possible to keep this information close at hand, easily accessible from the software itself. With this article, “How to Add Documents in QuickBooks,” you’ll be keeping this information close at hand in no time!
