Learn more about each view and how to switch between them.
In QuickBooks Online, there are two user views: Business view and Accountant view. You can switch between each view any time to focus on the work that matters most to you.
If you're brand new to accounting, or want to mainly focus on tracking sales and bills, use Business view. If you're an accounting pro or need complete control over things like your chart of accounts or journal entries, use Accountant view. Use the view that best suits your needs so you get the best experience.
