my client is subscribed with QBO plus and has 5 computers to be transfered from Desktop to Online . 

You can migrate the data file from QB Desktop to QB Online. What holds you? You can migrate 1 single data file to 1 QBO Plus account.

How do I transfer QBD from multiple computers to online QBO Plus ?

Hey JuliesABCs,

 

I'm happy to see you're looking to make the switch to QuickBooks Online! It's a convenient way to access powerful features to further simplify your accounting, and I'm confident you'll appreciate how easy it makes managing your books. If each computer has a separate company file, they can be imported into separate QuickBooks Online account. If a single company file is accessed on multiple devices, you can simply transfer the most recent file over. I'll be happy to help get this going.

 

The quickest way to migrate your data over is directly from QuickBooks Desktop. This usually takes several minutes for all the information to be uploaded. Simply go to the Company menu, then select Export Company File to QuickBooks Online to get started. There are a few reports we recommend saving beforehand, so check out this great article to learn more: Move your QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online 

 

Here's another useful guide if you're interested in having our migration team handle this for you: Import from QuickBooks Desktop and other software to QuickBooks Online

 

Let me know how this goes! I want to make sure you're able to start benefiting from the simplicity of QuickBooks Online.

@JuliesABCs 

Open the data file as Administrator and change it to single user mode. Then you can start on Step 2.

Hi again JuliesABC,

 

That's perfect. Since it sounds like it's all the same company file, they should be able to migrate into a single QuickBooks Online account. If you're the accountant or bookkeeper for this client, don't hesitate to reach out to our sales department. They'll be happy to help you set up your clients' accounts. 

 

Hope this helps!

Another option, have a multi-user license of QB Desktop, install it in a machine, then deploy a private cloud solution. It costs USD25/month/access and you can utilize it in turns.
