QuickBooks 2020 R6 Released

| March 26, 2020 | 0 Comments

Intuit has released QuickBooks 2020 R6, which fixes a few bugs and makes some other changes.

This update should be available via automatic updates, as well as at the QuickBooks Update site.

The changes that were announced are:

  • If the “Admin” logs in, they will now be required to log in to their “Intuit account”, when creating a new company file or opening an existing one. That is, each time.
  • Along the same line, if you create a new TSheets account you will need to log in with your Intuit account.
  • An “easier and more stable install experience”. Not sure what that is, really. In these uncertain times we can all use more stability.
  • Payroll reports and export to XML now will include information from the new W-4.
  • The Fixed Asset Manager has been updated for Tax Year 2019 with some important options.
  • If you use GMail to send messages through QuickBooks you will now see a pop-up window instead of the embedded browser, to comply with Google’s privacy policy.
  • You can now efile 1099 Misc forms via an Intuit service, in addition to the Tax 1099 service.

Bug Fixes in QuickBooks 2020 R6

Here are the bugs that have been resolved in this release:

  • An error where the “See History” link for an invoice appeared blank because credits were applied to it.
  • An issue that caused the prior invoice number to appear when recording a bounced check against a specific invoice.
  • An issue that caused an error while sending a sales receipt email for an e-check payment.
  • An issue that caused the timestamp in the Transaction tab to show 1969 for memorized transactions.
  • An issue that caused the Cost to Complete by Job Detail report to show all zeros.

Some other errors were listed by Intuit but I believe that they applied to non-US versions, and were included in this page by mistake.

If you run into any of these bugs, if you use GMail to send messages from QuickBooks,  or if you use QuickBooks payroll, you should get this update whenever you can. If you don’t have those issues, don’t be in a rush. Wait a few weeks.
