I need a fully offline version of QB. I do have desktop but am asked to log in online from time to time. I also see a new Hub feature which I assume consumes even more of my precious data. I have to pay for every ounce of data I consume which is very expensive. I work remote from my travel trailer and no longer have unlimited data like you would have at an office. My only connection is what I can pull through my cell phone hotspot and that assumes I can access a tower with a strong enough cell signal that will allow me to login. Working remotely with QB is agonizing. The login process is slow and difficult if I can log in at all. I was asked to login recently, the login process took me almost 2 hours to complete. I just want to go back to what I had before. Is there a version of QB that will allow me to use it when I'm totally offline for long periods? Unfortunately my internet search is not providing a solution. Thanks for your help! :)
I hear your sentiments, @LoriRow. That's why I'm here to share a few details about using a fully offline version of QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) concern.
I can see how the benefit of being able to use a fully offline version of QBDT would aid you in managing your business. However, QuickBooks requires internet access with at least a 56 Kbps connection speed (1 Mbps recommended) for payroll and other online features (i.e., banking). You can learn more about this through this article: System requirements for QuickBooks Desktop.
On the other hand, logging in to your Intuit account and verifying your identity helps protect your data and account. Then, it's easier for you to manage your connected Intuit services. To know more about this, please refer to these articles:
Also, to further guide you in managing your account and the growth of your business using QBDT, I would encourage you to check out one of our support pages: The QuickBooks Help Page. It includes help articles, Community discussions with other QuickBooks users, and video tutorials, to name a few.
Please keep me posted in the comments if you have other account management concerns using QBDT. I'm always ready to help. Take care, and I wish you continued success, @LoriRow.
