How do you add a second user to your account.

Hello there,


It's exciting to learn you'd like to add another user to your account. QuickBooks is a versatile program that adapts with you as your business grows. I'll be happy to share info on how to add a second user to your account. 


First, it's important to note the user types available in QBO. Here's a list of them:


  • Standard User - You can give them full or limited access, without admin privileges.
  • Company admin - They can see and do everything. This includes sending money, changing passwords, and adding users. 
  • Reports Only - The can see all reports, except ones that show payroll or contact info. 
  • Time tracking only - They can add their own timesheets.           

Follow the steps below to add a user:

  1.     Select Settings ⚙, then Manage Users. If you can’t select this, you don’t have permission to manage other users. Contact an admin user for help.
  2.     Select Add user.
  3.     Select the user type you want to create. More options will appear on the screen depending on the user type you select.
  4.     Enter your new user’s name and email address, then select Save.                       

For more info on user types, check out this helpful article from our Community: Learn about user types in QuickBooks Online. Feel free to ask other questions. I'll be here to help.
