Help, my bank transactions are not updating

If downloads seem stuck, or you want the latest available transactions, do a manual download:

  1. Go to Bookkeeping, select Transactions, then select Banking.
  2. Select Update.


This updates all your connected bank and credit card accounts. The number of transactions in each account tile will increase if QuickBooks downloads new transactions.

If you’re still experiencing issues, you may need to update your bank information. You can do so by following these steps:

  1. Go to Bookkeeping, select Transactions and select Banking.
  2. Select the tile for the bank account. Then select the Edit ✎ icon.
  3. Select Edit sign-in info.
  4. Update your info as needed.


Quick-Tip: If you see a message about additional authentication, follow the on-screen steps to continue the update. Not all banks require this, but some do for added peace of mind.
