I want to make sure you'll get the help you need by routing you to the right support, Abhishek_Gupta.


When it comes to creating a common database on the Ubuntu platform for the multiple users to integrate with the QuickBooks Desktop app in Windows, I'd suggest contacting Ubuntu technical support. Each app has a different way of integrating with our software. They'll provide you detailed information about how the integration works with the database connection between your app and QuickBooks.


On the other hand, we offer the QuickBooks Database Server Manager. It allows you to share your company files with other computers over your network. This lets multiple users work on the same company file at the same time. To learn more about this one, check out this article: Install QuickBooks Database Server Manager.
