Global Password reset

I am using Quickbooks 2014 desktop. I have 54 data files that I am in and out of all day long.  I also have 4 users set up on each data file.  I have set up passwords for each user.  But my users forget their password which means I have to go into all 54 data files and reset their password.  Is there a way to globally reset passwords?

Global Password reset

 

Hello there, @MarySue123.

 

QuickBooks Desktop requires one admin password/user for every company file. If you have multiple company files, you may need to have a password for each of those company files.

 

To know more about QuickBooks Desktop File Manager, here's an article that you can refer to.

 

Know that you can always visit our Help Articles page for QuickBooks Desktop in case you need some tips and related articles for your future tasks.

 

If there's anything else that I can help you with, please let me know in the comment section down below. I'll be always around ready to help.
