Are you a QuickBooks Desktop user? If so, it may be time to consider switching…
Intuit takes security very seriously and as more and more information is going into the cloud even on desktop products, it is important to keep your information up to date and current.
Intuit is changing its internal processes and now each QuickBooks user needs to have an Intuit ID and login. Previously, just the owner or software purchaser needed an Intuit ID.
So, we can no longer ignore the messages that we are seeing about updating your Intuit ID.
What do you do now?
If you have not logged into your Intuit account within the last 180 days then you will get an email similar to the one listed below.
Login to your QuickBooks company file as the admin and go to Company => Users => Intuit Account User Management. Then, choose the user to update. You can also search for a user by typing an address in the “Find by email” box.
- With the user selected, you can select an “Assigned role”, then make an appropriate selection to update the user as needed.
- When you are done, select “Save”
- QuickBooks will display a message that the user role has been updated. Click OK. The updated user role will be displayed on the account user management dashboard.
User Roles are given an initial list of pre-determined capabilities they can do in that specific role. Here is a summary:
Additional information about users and roles can be found at this link on the Intuit website. https://quickbooks.intuit.com/blog/accountant-advice/intuit-account-why-now-for-quickbooks-desktop/
Alternatively, QuickBooks users can also press the F1 key while in your QuickBooks company file to search for information on how to maintain your Intuit account.
