QuickBooks 2018 R6

| May 17, 2018

Intuit has released QuickBooks 2018 R6, which should be available via automatic updates. You can also go to the QuickBooks Update site to download the patch.

This is a maintenance release that will impact a small number of users, in my estimation. I’ve not had a chance to test this particular update, as the changes don’t affect features that I use. I recommend that you wait a week or two to see if anyone runs into any problems unless you are using QuickBooks Payroll, in which case I recommend that you install this update right away. I don’t expect any problems, I’m just cautious when it comes to updates. In general, once we get to this stage in the development of a QuickBooks product year, we usually (but not always) find that this is a stable release that you can rely on.

Capital One Bank Feeds

If you are using Capital One bank feeds then you will need this update. Capital One has changed the technology on their end of the process, and this requires a change in QuickBooks. You will have to perform a one-time setup to be able to continue using your bank feed.

QuickBooks Payroll

This release fixes an issue where employees may receive another employee’s paystub by error, and were able to open it with their password. If you are using QuickBooks Payroll then I recommend that you install this update right away.

QuickBooks Payments

I’m not sure that I’m thrilled with this kind of nagging, really. All first-time users of QuickBooks Payments who have never sent an e-invoice to their customers will see a reminder to send e-invoices after every 7th invoice that they email. I’ve not seen how this “reminder” has been implemented (as I’ve been using QuickBooks Payments for many years), so I don’t know how intrusive it is.

QuickBooks Installation Errors

Intuit has made “additional improvements” to reduce the number of 80029c4a errors.

  1. We are using QB Enterprise for Manufacturers and upgraded from 2017 to 2018. We use advanced inventory and assisted payroll with the maintenance contract. When we ran the first payroll after conversion we discovered that Intuit had overidden our subscription with a lesser payroll package (enhanced payroll) and it took hours to reinstate Assisted PR. One of us has installed this new update and it wiped customer information out. Another person it froze their computer.

    I think the trend here is in the wrong direction.
