QuickBooks 2016 R15 Released

| October 12, 2018

Intuit has released QuickBooks 2016 R15, a maintenance release. Intuit is well into the maintenance cycle for this product, so we are seeing mostly minor tweaks. This update should be available via automatic updates. You can also go to the QuickBooks Update site to download the patch.

The changes are:

  • Bank Feeds: This release fixes some errors that Intuit didn’t want to explain to us. Who knows what they changed?
  • Invoices and Microsoft Outlook: There are some fixes to resolve issues where QuickBooks would freeze when working with invoices if you have Microsoft Outlook installed.
  • PDF/Forms Errors: If you get an error when printing a PDF form you will now see a Troubleshoot button for running the Print PDF Repair Tool.
  • Error Messages: There are some minor wording changes for several of the error messages to make them clearer (things like subscription lapses, etc.).
  • QuickBooks Payments: Each user must now have their own unique Intuit ID to be able to work with QuickBooks Payments, rather than sharing one ID for all users in your company file. In general, the “Intuit ID” concept was set up to be used by an individual, not company wide, so this is in keeping with Intuit’s intent. It is a minor hassle.
  • Payroll: This release fixes an issue where a paycheck may get stuck as “online to send” due to error PS038 not allowing the user to download the latest payroll.

For the most part these seem to be minor issues, although Intuit really doesn’t explain what kind of things are fixed with “Bank Feeds”. In general, if you have run into some of these problems, updating is worth your time.
