QuickBooks 2018 R7

| July 26, 2018

Intuit has released QuickBooks 2018 R7, 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.

QuickBooks Payroll

There are several changes to QuickBooks payroll:

  • This release fixes an issue causing employees to receive and open another employee’s paystub using their own password.
  • A prompt to authorize users will appear before changing any Employee & Vendor Direct Deposit Bank details.
  • The queue of blocked paychecks caused by past edits will now be cleared out to be able to send new paychecks.

QuickBooks Payments

For improved security, each QuickBooks Payments user will be required to have their own unique Intuit ID. In the past you could have one Intuit ID for that all users would use. There is no cost to having a separate Intuit ID for each user, but it does sometimes make things a bit more complicated.

Additional Bug Fix

This release fixed an error causing QuickBooks to crash when creating a new company file.
