Set up multi-user QuickBooks

There are two ways to set up multi-user QuickBooks.

  • Recommended multi-user setup: For the most reliable multi-user setup, Intuit recommends that you install QuickBooks or the QuickBooks Server on the same computer as the company file and set up that computer to host multi-user access to company files.

    Does the recommended setup require an additional user license?

    No additional license is required for the computer that contains the company file, as long as the QuickBooks software on that computer is used only to host multi-user access to the company file. Refer to your QuickBooks license agreement for more information.

  • Alternate multi-user setup: If you cannot install QuickBooks or the QuickBooks Server on the same computer as the company file, you can use the alternate setup.

What's the difference between the recommended setup and alternate setup?
