To resolve QuickBooks performance issues in multi-user mode, you need to follow multiple procedures. It is important to zero in on the root cause of this performance issue. Multi-user mode is slower than single user mode, but if you are experiencing significant slower performance, then there might be some issue.
Upgrading the Software
This may not be the best option for all organization, and is also expensive. Users can simply upgrade to QuickBooks 2018 which significantly improves upon the features available in this accounting software for multi-user mode. These features aim to increase the speed at which the utilities and tools operate when the software is being used in multi user mode.
Here are the features that boost multi user mode efficiency and performance in QuickBooks 2018:
In early version of QuickBooks , switching between user modes can consume a lot of time. Tools and processes related to single user mode are closed first and then the multi user mode is launched. The overhead time can be substantial when users are focusing on efficiency. In the latest version of QuickBooks , the time taken to switch between user modes is negligible. Hence, with just a click, you can switch between user modes.
More Features in Multi User Mode
Now, features that were previously restricted only for single user mode are also available in multi user mode. By doing so, Intuit has made it unnecessary for users to work in single user mode in most cases. These tools have been optimized for multi user mode and will not cause performance issues.
Before switching user mode, it is important to have all other users logged out of the company. If another user is working and has not saved their data, it will be lost if the user mode has been switched. To protect users against this, the communication tool is available in QuickBooks . With this tool, you can inform all other logged in users that you are going to switch the user mode.
Huge Company File
Our QuickBooks help team came to the conclusion that most users suffer performance issues due to a huge company file. At first, this may not seem a big issue to new QuickBooks users. The reason why a huge company file is a big problem is that it loads into the memory of the system when you start QuickBooks . If all the memory is taken up by this company file, then there is little left for other programs and even QuickBooks to run.
So at this point, users have two options:
- Get the company file divided into multiple parts (recommended)
- Purchase more memory for your system
