Connect with and learn from others in the QuickBooks Community.
I've set up a user with no access to Payroll ad Employees, Sensitive Activities or Reports, but they can still opent the employee center and see paychecks. What else should I be doing?
Good day, @AOA1.
Thanks for dropping by the Community. I’m here to make sure this issue gets taken care of.
It’s possible that the user profile is damaged allowing access to restricted areas in QuickBooks. Try creating a new one with the same roles assigned to verify.
Let me show you how:
Now, have the new user access QuickBooks and check if they can still view the restricted areas. If they can’t, delete the damaged user profile by following the steps below.
Check out this article to get a better idea on user role: QuickBooks Desktop Users and Restrictions.
That should fix the issue with the damage user access.
Let me know if this works out for you, I’m more than happy to help. Have a great day!
Still not working. Please see attached.
Maybe Rebuild Data?
Thanks for getting back to us and letting us know the outcome of the troubleshooting. I'd be glad to share information about user roles and access in QuickBooks, and get you back to working order.

In the meantime, you can check the Role List section of the Users and Roles page. From there you can view the Access Level for each role you assign to your employees. Here's how to do that:
If the set up is correct and you're getting the same behavior, running the Verify/Rebuild Utility is a good option. Here's how:

That's it! Please keep me updated on the outcome. I'll be on a stand by for your response. Have a good one!
