Recently added a standard user and my cpa and both say they are unable to log in. Any advice?

Let's get your other user's accesses working, spidellautomotiv.


We can ask your CPA and other users to do a few troubleshooting steps. This would help us know where the issue is coming from. Cache might have contributed on this unexpected result that we have right now. Though it helps your browser or device's background processes run smoothly, this can also cause unexpected issues when piled up.


If they are using a computer browser, here's how to get rid of any cache-related concerns:

  1. Open a private browser and log in to your account. It uses but doesn't store cache.
  2. If they can access QuickBooks successfully, we can go back to your regular browser and clear the cache.
  3. Other supported browsers are good alternatives, too. Each of them uses a different cache.

If they're using the QuickBooks Online desktop app, they can follow the steps in this article on how to clear cache: QuickBooks App for Windows and Mac: General support.


If they're using the QuickBooks Online mobile app, I'd recommend keeping the mobile's operating system and the application's version updated. Then, you can clear the app's cache through your mobile settings. You can uninstall and reinstall the app if necessary.


Let us know how this goes so we can further assist you in managing your users. Have a great day!
