There’s a lot of information published about QuickBooks in many different blogs (and other sources) – here’s a rundown of some of the more interesting things I came across in November (some from me, some from other writers). See the articles for details!
- QuickBooks and Windows 8: At this time Intuit doesn’t officially support Windows 8, but if you have QuickBooks 2011 or later, there are things you can do. See Solving Problems with Windows 8 and QuickBooks 2013 (and more).
- If you manage a QuickBooks desktop file you may have seen information on “DB File Fragments”. Do you understand what these are? Take a look at What are DB File Fragments and Why Do I Get Them in My QuickBooks File?
- It was a busy month for QuickBooks Updates:
- QuickBooks POS and QuickBooks Desktop: I see questions about this often (and I avoid them because I don’t know much about QBPOS). Trying to connect them? See How to Change the Account Mapping Between QuickBooks POS and QuickBooks.
- Purchasing help for QuickBooks: I really like the low cost MISys Easy Purchasing for QuickBooks add-on product to help with deciding on what items to purchase, and to create PO’s.
- Do vendors give you refunds? Happy day! Know how to deal with that in QuickBooks? See Depositing a Vendor Refund in QuickBooks.
- QuickBooks Mobile drops the web: It used to be “QuickBooks Connect” and it let you perform SOME tasks with your QuickBooks Desktop data from a web browser (as well as a mobile device). Then they changed the name to “QuickBooks Mobile”. Not they are focusing on the “mobile” part and dropping support for web browsers. Why? I don’t know, but when I find out I’ll write about it in QuickBooks and Beyond.
