How do I transfer files to or from the hosting environment? How does Quickbooks handle a disruption in service?
What happens if I lose my connection to the server?
This is done by clicking the "Options" button on the first window that appears, then clicking on the "Local Resources" tab.
Check the box marked "Disk Drives", and your drive will appear as a networked drive in the server environment.
These are the software downloads that are "pushed" out by Quick Books periodically to fix known problems in the software or to deal with other issues and concerns within Quick Books.
In some cases, these updates also add new functionality to Quick Books (example - the updates for Quick Books 2009 have added functionality that was not in the initial release of 2009), but generally, new functionality is added with a Quick Books upgrade (see discussion below).
Is there a way that a CPA can see what their client is doing?
No, this is a feature that, for security reasons, ITX has chosen to refrain from issuing to its CPA clients.
How does Quickbooks handle a disruption in service?
ITX does not represent Intuit or Quickbooks, but we have found that Quickbooks recovers quite gracefully from a terminated session or service disruption, and have not seen any loss of data due to terminated connections.
In the past, Quick Books has released a new version of their software each fall, sometime between September and November.
