It's good to see you here in the Community, @tanksonfire.
I'm here to help turn off the Business Network feature in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
You can only opt-out Business Network feature once it's live. To do so, you can navigate to the Account and Settings page to opt-out of the QuickBooks Business Network.
As always, you can visit our QuickBooks Community help website if you need tips and related articles in the future.
Our doors are always open to help you again if you have follow-up questions about this matter. Have a pleasant day ahead, @tanksonfire.
As far as I can tell, it isn’t live yet.
I hate this sort of thing: we are obligated to tell our users, but if we notify them and leave the date open-ended so that they have to keep checking back to stop their privacy from being violated, they’ll eventually forget about it and forget to turn it off. It’s a sleazy tactic, and it further degrades my opinion of QuickBooks as a product and Intuit as a developer.
It's now live but I do not see a setting available anywhere in Account and Settings that will allow me to turn it off. Do you have any additional information about deactivation of this feature, @Mark_R?
I want to ensure you can turn off the feature without a moment's delay.
Since the feature is now live, you should be able to turn it off in the Account and Settings. It sounds like your server was interrupted or corrupted. Sometimes, too much cache build-up in your regular browser can cause unexpected behavior in the product. I'd suggest pressing the F5 on your keyboard to refresh the connection. Then log in and out if necessary.
If the issue continues, I'd recommend logging your account through incognito. This way, we can check if it's a browser-related issue. Refer to the keyboard shortcuts below:
Once logged in, go back to the Account and Setting, then choose Advanced. If you can turn it off, return to your regular browser and press the CTRL+ Shift and Delete keys on the keyboard to clear the cache.
If the problem persists, I'd advise contacting our Customer Care Team. They may have the option to turn it off on their end or further investigate the issue.
Make sure to contact them within business hours to ensure a swift response.
