Let me clear things out for you, RonnieBoone.

 

QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) is unable to show the login activities of users. This feature is already forwarded to our Product Team.

 

For now, feel free to visit the Product Updates page to know what's new and coming in the system. It includes several topics to keep you in the loop.

 

I've also added this Stay logged in to QuickBooks company file (sign in without entering your password) link for another related topic about user activity in the system.

 

Keep me posted if there's anything else I can help you. I'm always around to help you out.

Hi RonnieBoone. There's a feature called the audit trail that is similar to the solution you probably found for QuickBooks Online. Although you can't see when someone logs in you can see what times throughout the day each user is making changes inside the books. Follow the steps below to access the audit trail.

  1. Go to Reports.
  2. Choose Accountant and Taxes.
  3. Select Audit Trail.

Now you'll see a detailed report showing all changes made to the file including which users made those changes. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

This is not what I'm looking for.  Someone could log in and never be seen on the Audit Trail if they never make any changes. I want to know how long they're logged in, whether they're doing anything or not.
