New install of QB Mac 2020 on networked macs (3). Using one as a file server with two clients. Work done on one client saves no problem to server company file. Work done on the other client will save to company file.
Hello there, KenJ,
I'm here to provide an update. Opening QuickBooks through the thump drive will damage your data. That's why it's not saving your transactions.
You'll want to save a copy of the company file to a local drive and open the app from there. Check out the Install and set up QuickBooks Desktop for Mac for more details on how to set up the software.
For more tips, see the Where are you going to store your company file? section through this article: Multiuser Checklist.
Please get back to me if you need further assistance. I'll gladly help.
Thank you, but this is not a multi-user issue. We don't use multi-user as our experience in the past has been pretty dismal. Instead for years we have simple opened the file on the "server" Mac as needed from one of the two "client" Macs. Each of us working one at a time. It's worked fine, and continues to work well for one of the clients. The other client will save only one entry no more.?
