Why Setting Up A Secondary Account Is Essential For Your QuickBooks Desktop Account

Why Setting Up A Secondary Account Is Essential For Your QuickBooks Desktop Account

If you are a QuickBooks Desktop user, setting up a secondary account is an essential step in ensuring your data is always accessible.  Is your QuickBooks Desktop account setup properly?  Here is a quick tip for Desktop users: Don’t forget to setup your user account (the one you will regularly use) separately from the default admin account.

Setting up a secondary account from the default admin is considered best practices because – as some of our clients have experienced – if something happens to your desktop computer while you are logged into QuickBooks, you could be locked out of your admin account and unable to access your QuickBooks file.

It’s especially important if you use QuickBooks or other timely tasks, such as processing payroll.  So if you have created the other login, you can still get your payroll and any other bookkeeping done whether there is an issue with your computer or not.
