QuickBooks 2016r33 for Macintosh: Memorized transactions are only visible to admin users. Can they be accessed by a limited user? And if so, limited to what?
Good day, @BradMacPro!
I'm here to share a little more details about user permissions in your QuickBooks Desktop for Mac.
First off, QuickBooks Desktop for Mac has two user permissions. These are Administrative and Custom users.
The Administrative user can do all things and has all the access to every area of a company file. While Custom user can only access to selected areas of a company file.
Although Custom user has limited access, you can still access the memorized transactions. However, it'll still depend on what permissions have been granted by your Administrative user.
In addition, I've included a video tutorial and an article you can read to learn more about user permissions: Access QuickBooks User Manuals and Installation Guides.
It'll be always my pleasure to help you out if you have any other questions about user access and permissions. Have a great day!
Even with all checkboxes ticked, the non-Administrator user sees nothing in the memorized transactions window but the admin one does. As we would like a limited user to be able to use the memorized transactions, I don’t see how. I have yet to watch the video. Didn’t show on the iPhone, presumably does on the Mac.
I appreciate the details you've given, @BradMacPro.
Allow me to step into this conversation and provide you with more information about user access for the memorized transaction in QuickBooks Desktop for Mac.
If you've given permission to your user to access the Memorized Transactions in QuickBooks by clicking the sensitive financial option on your permission section, then the user should be able to see the said transaction.
To better isolate this issue, you can try creating a memorized transaction on a sample company file and have a dummy user to view the transaction. If this works, you may go back to your company file then remove and re-enter your users.
If the issue persists after trying this process, you can try performing the verify and rebuild process. Verifying the data self-identifies data issues within a company file while rebuilding the data resolves data integrity issues.
To do that:
Once done, you can proceed with verifying the data.
For more details about this process, please refer to this article: Resolve data damage on your company file.
That should do it!
Please let me know how it goes or if you have any questions with accessing memorized transactions in QuickBooks. I'm always ready to help. Take care!

That option was checked and no memorized transactions were visible. Will try a rebuild.
Hey there, BradMacPro.
Once done running the Verify/Rebuild utility tool, check if the non-Administrator user can now view the memorized transactions.
However, if they're still unable to view them, I suggest getting in touch with our technical support to have this checked better. They have more tools to investigate this further.

I opened the Sample Service file, Larry's Landscaping & Garden Supply, entered multiuser mode, and while there were already memorized instructions, I added another (Ecker Design). I created a limited user, with access to Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable and Inventory and Sensitive Financial and logged off as administrator and logged in as that limited user and the memorized transaction list is blank, Not the one I added or the others previously defined, so it seems to not be a problem with our usual QB file.
I tried that to the sample service file, enabled multiuser mode, and while there were already a bunch of memorized transactions, I added another. Logged off as administrator, logged in as the limited user, with access to Accounts Payable, Receivable, Inventory, and Sensitive Financial, it did not show any memorized transactions. This tends to indicate the QB file in question is not corrupted and as this behavior was on my mac as well as others, it's perhaps a setting we all have overlooked.
Thanks for trying the recommended troubleshooting, BradMacPro.
