Does anyone know how I can be notified by Intuit when QuickBooks for Mac 2015 will be updated to run on Mac OS 10.12 Sierra?

intuit biscotti is a busy man/woman.  Thanks for doing your best to keep us up to speed.  I'm an unhappy 2014 mac user and very disappointed that I'm being forced to upgrade to a new version simply to stay current with my software.  Basically, I will be doing a cost benefit analysis. At this point, it seems that I'm being asked to invest $200+ on a piece of software that works fine and does what I need it to do.  If that is the case, I will look at other options outside of the QB universe.  There are many new programs out there that offer the same functionality, whether online or offline.  I am most likely going to strike QB from my consideration set and make a change that has been long coming.  This forced upgrade path is a very business-unfriendly practice. I've had QB 2014 for about 2 years and it makes no sense to spend a dumb amount of money just for the benefit of running a safer, more secure and up to date operating system.  Leaves a bad taste in my mouth.  Sorry, Intuit, you guys failed on this one.

@macguyincali  - FWIW - I called Customer Service and purchased v2016 that does work with Sierra for $149. It's a non-published price. I also agree with you that forcing users to upgrade due to a major operating system upgrade is not good at all.

Thanks @andy .  I will look at that option.  $149 is better, but it is hard to justify given I won't be gaining anything for that $149.  And when will I be forced to upgrade again?  Who knows.  I'm researching other options that might be more Mac-friendly, have better / different features and maybe I find the perfect accounting software finally after all these years.  One door closes another opens.

@macguyincali  - I already looked around at some of the solutions out there and the going rate for what I need means SaaS for about $29/month. There aren't many companies that offer desktop software with all the features QB does in the pro version. I also considered the cost of migrating everything, re-creating my custom templates, etc. That's why I chose to bite the bullet.

We can't update 2014 or earlier to work with a new OS because of how the revenue was recognized in those years. For 2015 and 2016 we are allowed to update to the new OS and are doing so.  2016 also includes many new features (we just released a bunch of them) and something people tend to forget is that every year we make the program more robust and safer via bug fixes, better tools ,etc.   The $149 I believe is promotional pricing given out to help with the issue.

Thanks @IntuitBiscotti.  It appears your company follows a different model than pretty much every other software developer out there.  $149 does soften the blow, but upgrading should never be forced on a customer, especially for software that sold as recently as 2 years ago. Customers should be able to upgrade when it makes most sense for them, not when it is imposed on them by the developer.  I may or may not want the new features.  I just want my QB to work as it always has.

I agree 100% with macguyincali.  If Intuit, for their own reason,s elects not to fix my 2 year old software QB 2014 then they should provide users with a version that does work at NO CHARGE.  Providing users of QB 2014 Mac with the patched 2015 costs Intuit nothing.  Charging me $149 to fix for packaged software I purchased from them two years ago is unacceptable.  If I had wanted to purchase QB as a subscription I would have.  Instead you are asking me to both but it and then pay a fee after two years to  continue using it.   Intuit should do the right thing.

The company recognized revenue at the time of sale for the 2014 version. That changed in 2015 and now revenue is recognized over three years (I believe).   I don't want to go into it but what you want for 2014 isn't legally permitted.  Sorry.

The fact that they now recognize revenue over three years serves to confirm they should support the product for at least three years.  There is no US law, regulation or accounting requirement that bars them from supporting their customers on QB 2014, especially if hey provide free copies of the patched 2015 which would have no financial impact.  I encourage you to check with your CFO before making such a statement.

Would any of the intuit peeps on this thread be able to give us a rough estimate on when the patch for 2015 is going to be released? We understand it's not a promise, just an educated guess.

Here's the CFO discussing the change to revenue recognition:

His point of view is different than mine or yours of course.  For me I don't have to check with the CFO.  Our changes to the product are reviewed by a revenue recognition specialist once a quarter.  If we violate the rules they would not allow us to ship that change.  We know what the rules are so we don't violate them.

In business, never give your customer a reason to look elsewhere.  Thanks Quickbooks, I have 2014, no upgrade? Thanks!  I've found AccountEdge Pro.  Guess what, you've lost a customer.

I just made a Genius Bar Appt. and went to the Mac Store and reverted back to the previous OS and am back running QB 2015 again.  Some could probably do it on their own but chose to go in so I didn't F it up...

Upgrading your Mac before checking to see if your installed 3rd party applications were compatible with the new operating system.. not cool

For the last two posters, I am generally more savvy, but did not  check compatability. Intuit is a major company providing business software at great expense. Apple, like Microsoft, gives developers lots of notice. My version of QB Mac desktop is 2015, one year old. I know I created my own problem, but I expected better, timely support.

Mommycott:  Selling a mission-critical business application and not having your update ready in time for the rollout of a widely-anticipated operating system... not cool.
