The user license is one of the most important aspects and document signifying authentic purchase and registration of the software with Intuit. These user licenses needed to be downloaded and installed in order for the QuickBooks software to work properly as every user is denoted with a specific license number. The user can access the software in two modes – single user mode (wherein one subscription of the software is accessed by only one user) and multi-user mode (wherein one subscription of the software is employed by numerous other users).
Under multi-user mode, the user will be required to add an additional license for the software if it is operated over different systems. To add another set of licenses, the user is required to go to the main menu bar of QuickBooks on the dashboard. Click on Help tab followed by selecting Manage My License. From the new drop down menu click on Buy Additional License, which will open a new screen giving two options to buy a license – from phone support or the website. Once the required license has been bought, the user will be instructed to install, register and then sync the new license within the QuickBooks software.
Once the software has been installed on different systems, multi-user mode has to be configured. Under Internet access, the user can employ the software through the cloud system or gain remote access through different third-party software to remotely operate QuickBooks via one of the other computer systems.
User Licenses for Different Versions of QuickBooks
Different versions of software allow a different number of users to access the software at the same time. The number of users per QuickBooks version is listed below:
- QuickBooks Pro software – 1 – 3 users can access the software simultaneously
- QuickBooks Premier Software – 1 – 5 users can access the software simultaneously.
- QuickBooks Enterprise Software. Businesses allowing more than 5 users access to the software at the same time have to go for QuickBooks Enterprise Software.
