At the prompting of QuickBooks 2020 Pro, my company updated our company file and also installed R7 on two work stations. Among other little glitches on the two updated work stations, we have a HUGE glitch when it comes to clicking a menu tab at the top (File, Edit, View, Vendors, etc.). When clicking on one of those tabs, QuickBooks locks up for several moments before finally showing the tab dropdown menus. Is there any fix for this? We can't be the only ones with this issue.
Also, when logging in as Admin now, it requires we create/log in with an Intuit account. Is that really necessary? We enjoy our privacy. I didn't see any way around it other than to click "I need more time." If we do NOT log into an intuit account as Admin will it not allow Admin to log into the company file? That's another thing--the pop up said login to the company file was successful, but then right below it, it said to login to the company file we needed to sign into an intuit account.... That's really contradictory. And should not be required? We even attempted to log in out of fear the Admin account would be locked out and Intuit's websites within QuickBooks were not working...
Let's perform some troubleshooting steps to get this issue sorted for you. I suggest running our QuickBooks Tool Hub. This will diagnose and fix uncommon issues in your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) software. Let me guide you how.
Additionally, from the previous Release 6 (R6). When opening a new company or existing file, admin users are required to log in to their Intuit account. Here's an article you can read that tackles more about this: Release notes for QuickBooks Desktop 2020.
