QB desktop pro 2020

Is there a way for me to put QB desktop pro 2020 on two separate computers at two separate locations? I would like to do some work from home and I would not be on QB's at the same time on both computers.

If you are the only user, utilize a remote desktop app


You may need another solution to have more than one user working on the same file at the same time.
