With so many unchecked boxes remaining on your year-end tax preparation list(s), and so little time to check them off, accounting frenzy is afoot. Unsurprisingly, daily tasks, project work to meet or beat upcoming deadlines, and more 2022-year planning tend to be the priorities at this time. If accountants are not Superwomen and Supermen, leveraging their superpowers to churn out incredible accounting work, then how can they manage to get all of these things done in so little time? And, more importantly, with their noses to the grindstone, will the quality and accuracy of their work suffer?

How to Setup User Access in QuickBooks

How to Setup User Access in QuickBooks

Will multiple employees be working with your QuickBooks company file? You’ll need to define their permission levels.

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. Most likely, you have established a system that allowed staff to work only with information that related to their jobs. 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.

How to Add Documents in QuickBooks

How to Add Documents in QuickBooks

Accounting is about more than just numbers. QuickBooks lets you make documents available from within the program itself.

You could call QuickBooks a “green” computer program. It can conserve reams of paper by storing customer and vendor records, for example, emailing transaction forms, and accepting online payments.

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.

And you’re probably still consulting paper documents, stored computer files, or scanned images that relate to your accounting data. 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!
