With enterprise solutions, how many users can be logged in at the same time?

Good day, svbikes.

 

I'd be glad to share with you the number of users that can access your company at a time.
 

Using the QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise allows more than one user. It offers up to 30 users in your book, and they can log in at the same time. 

 

Also, you can check out these articles to know more about hosting your company data in multi-user mode. Afterwards, you can now proceed with setting up your company to multi-user.

 

Please let me know if you have other questions. I'm always here to help. Take care!

I have QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise with remote access. I have 7 company files and 8 people that access the files from time to time. I purchased a 2 user license. 

Question:

 

Can 2 users access the same file and the other 6 users access one in each of the other files?

Thank you for joining here in the thread @Henry56.

 

Yes, since you have two user licenses, you can have two users access in the same file. All you need to do is to set up a multi-user mode in your server and working station. Then, the rest of the users can access each file you have. 

 

You can follow these steps on how to set up a multi-user network. But first, please know that the recommended set up is having the company file stored on the Host computer. Here's how:

 

  1. In your QuickBooks Desktop account, go to the File menu.
  2. Select Utilities.
  3. Choose the Host Multi-User Access.
  4. Hit Yes.

 

You may use this article for more detailed information: Hosting your company data in multi-user mode in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Once done, you can now proceed on how to set up a multi-user network. Please follow the on-screen instruction provided in this article: Set up and install a multi-user network for QuickBooks Desktop.

 

I'll add this article in case you need help on how to access QuickBooks Desktop remotely from a host or server computer: Open a company file located on a remote computer.
