I am a relatively new Treasurer for a non-profit. I inherited as an accounting system an assortment of Excel files and realized immediately that was inadequate to our needs. There are three people in our organization who will share data entry and reporting functions. We do not have office space--all our work is done on laptops in living rooms, dens, and coffee shops. I was advised to buy three seats of QuickBooks Premier Nonprofit, which I did, and am in the midst of transitioning to it. Now I fear I bought the wrong product, due to its lack of internet-based sharing capability. Before I bite the bullet and switch to QuickBooks Online, can someone point me to a guide for how to share company files among a few users not on the same LAN? I saw on another thread that Dropbox, OneDrive, etc. were non-starters. I can accommodate an operational restriction like no two users working at the same time.
You must consider to host your files but not using public clouds like Dropbox, Gdrive, or similar solution. Their platforms are not supported multi-user access yet for QuickBooks. We have a recommended UK based hosting provider for your specific needs. Many of our clients in Indonesia and Asia have been using their service. Should you interest to explore, please drop your email to us.
Our recommended solution only need a minimum complexity of technical knowledge. If your team don't need to work concurrently over the internet, you can consider to use any online storage in the market only for sharing purpose. You should have to backup your file regularly as well.
