QuickBooks 2020 R8 Released

| September 3, 2020

Intuit has released QuickBooks 2020 R8, which fixes a few bugs, changes a few things, and adds a few new features.

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

  • QuickBooks users can request that the Admin grant them roles or permissions to complete certain tasks.
  • The Intuit account user management dashboard is now accessible from a browser.
  • In QuickBooks Enterprise, users now have the ability to make Lot or Serial Numbers required on transactions. This may be really good, but think carefully about implementing this, as it might create some frustration.
  • For Payroll, to support FFCRA compliance on 941 forms, all employers who benefited from the FFCRA and CARES acts have to report the Federal withholdings from their employees paychecks and company contributions to IRS.

Bug Fixes in QuickBooks 2020 R8

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

  • Resolves a problem that caused QuickBooks to quit unexpectedly while upgrading from an earlier version of QuickBooks.
  • Adds a checkbox confirming that the customer’s signed authorization to save credit card payment information has been obtained.
  • Fixes an error message that prevented the Business Planner from launching.
  • Fixes a problem where the wrong address would be selected when creating a purchase order from a sales order.
  • Fixes a problem that prevented a user from setting up Gmail with Enhanced Security.
  • Fixes some unspecified login issues that relate to the QuickBooks File Manager.
  • Fixes a Unit of Measure issue that prevented item imports when using the advanced import with Excel.
  • Fixes a problem that might occur when changing an Other Name to a Vendor, Customer or Employee.
