IIF import requires closing all windows

I just upgraded from QB Desktop 2016 to 2019. The IIF import process now requires that all windows be closed before doing the import. This is really annoying. If the process is going to close the windows it should put them all back when it's finished. You could also offer an option on the Window menu to save the current window layout and restore it later.


I keep 6 or 8 windows open all the time as a financial dashboard and for quick access to accounts, etc. Having to go reopen all those windows every time I do an import (which I often do several times a week) is a big, needless hassle.

IIF import requires closing all windows

Hi, BillW3.

I can see where you’re coming from, I’ll make sure to take note and share this message to our developers for future updates.

For now, you can bookmark these windows to reopen them easily. You can also visit your browsing history to access your recently closed windows. 

Let me know if you have further questions. I’ll be around to help.
