Where can I find the QBO desktop app to download

I've just got the link for you to download the QBO Desktop app, janineilliano.

 

You can open this link to begin the process: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/apps/. Scroll down to the Get the QuickBooks Mac or Windows App section, and then click the Free Download button.

 

After the download is complete, you'll see a shortcut icon for QBO on your screen. Simply click it and log in using your username and password, and you're good to go.

 

I'm here if you have more concerns. Thanks for dropping by.

What about a DESKTOP, not online app?

I'm here to ensure you're able to download the desktop version of QuickBooks, @Jenf219. This way, you'll be using the correct and reliable website and get the said program to manage your business.

 

QuickBooks has a variety of programs that'll help in managing your business and QuickBooks Desktop is one of them. When you download the desktop version of QuickBooks, you'll first need to consider its system requirements. This is to make sure it'll perform to its best.

 

You'll have two options on how you want to download your QuickBooks Desktop program. It's either through the Express or Standard setup. Please note that the Express setup is only for US customers with Windows 8.1 and above.

 

Once everything is all set, you can follow the following steps on how to download.

  1. Go to this website: https://downloads.quickbooks.com/app/qbdt/products.
  2. Select either the Express or Standard set up.
  3. For Express setup, click the Download button to automatically receive the file.
  4. For the Standard setup, select United States (US) in the Country field.
  5. Choose the QuickBooks Desktop product you want, then its version.
  6. Click the Search button.
  7. Select the Download button.

 

After downloading, you'll have to install and activate your QuickBooks Desktop account. For the step-by-step guide, kindly refer to this article: Install QuickBooks Desktop.

 

I'm also adding this article to guide you on how to use the product and effectively manage your business through it: Get QuickBooks Desktop user guides. It also contains related articles about user guides to help you get familiar with it.

 

Please let me know if you have other concerns. I'm just around to help. Take care always.

What if you bought the software from the store and installed it on your computer? Are you able to still use an app to scan receipts?

Hi Lantz74.

 

Thanks for stopping by the Community. Depending on which version of the QuickBooks Desktop product you have, you can use the QuickBooks Scan manager to scan receipts. Here's how:

 

Step 1: Create your scan profile:

  1. From the Company menu, select Documents, then choose Doc Center.
  2. Select Scan a Document.
  3. Select New to set up a new profile or select an existing scan profile.
  4. Edit the name of your profile, then select Continue.
  5. Adjust the profile settings as appropriate, then select Save.

Step 2: Set up and test your scanner:

  1. Highlight your profile, then choose Select.
  2. In the Select Scanner window, select Scanner Setup Wizard.
    Note: The Current Selection field should show your scanner. If you don't see your scanner, select Yes, then Next to download the latest scanner database from Nuance.
  3. Select the appropriate mode. This is typically Normal Mode.
  4. Check the Perform Tests box, then select Next.
  5. Select the test you want to run, then select Next twice to start testing your scanner.
  6. Check the Repeat this test in order to check all modes box, then select Next to continue testing in other available modes.

Step 3: Scan and add documents:

 

After successfully testing all modes, you can start using your scanner.

 

To attach a file, just select the Attach File button on any transaction.

 

For additional information on the process, as well as the steps listed above, you can check out the following article: QuickBooks Scan Manager.

 

If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to post here at any time. Thank you and have a nice afternoon

Hey again, Lantz74.

 

Unfortunately, QuickBooks Scan Manager is only supported in QuickBooks Desktop for Windows. This is the reason why you’re not able to see it or the Document Center.


However, I have a workaround for you with Desktop for Mac, you’ll have to scan the attachments. Here’s how:


1.    Open the transaction.
2.    Click the attachment icon to open the scan window.
3.    Select the options and settings for the scan.
4.    Click Scan.


If you need other users to access the attachments in a multi-user mode, you’ll need to set up the Attached Documents Library on a shared drive. To find out more, you can go through the User Guide and search these topics:


•    To scan an attachment
•    Tips and tricks for attaching files in QuickBooks and using the Attached Documents Library
•    Attachments Center

 

Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please, let me know.

When opening, the Desktop app says that it "will not be updated after April 21, 2021" suggesting that it is being discontinued by Intuit as of that date, and that all customers will need to use the browser version   The links on the message provide no further guidance nor does there appear to be any "news" or articles that address this mysterious message.    If that is the case, you may NOT want to find and download the "app" and learn to live with that method of access. . . . . . .
