Quickbooks Pro Desktop and DropBox

Quickbooks Pro Desktop and DropBox

I have been wanting to use Quickbooks Desktop on multiple computers.  I don't share it with anyone else but need access to it from a couple of different computers depending on my situation.  I was having sync issues where there would be conflicted copies, etc.  I know this is because the other computers that are syncing with DropBox and are on are causing sync issues.  What I have been doing now is to pause syncing from teh computer I am working on before I launch Quickbooks.  Once I am done using Quickbooks I close it then turn on syncing.  Things seems to be better and I am not getting the conflicted copy issues.  SInce I am a single user, it feels like that is the best strategy.  Anyone else doing something different that works?

I, personally, think thats the best strategy with lots of backups JUST IN CASE! 🙂

What do you think of the idea of Backing up to Dropbox, then Open the Backup on the other computer. My wife carrys a thumb drive back and forth. I'm going to suggest using DropBox instead.

I tried to work with the same problem.  I looks like that you need to wait until all files are syncronized with the Dropbox server.  However, i still find the whole process not as quick as I expected. Sometimes I find that work done on another computer does not reflect on the one working on.

 

Does anybody have any other alternative?

I will be using Quickbooks on Multiple Computers. I'm new to Quickbooks but a long time fan of DropBox and working from multiple machines.  

I will be interested to see how I can "share" my QuickBooks Files with my Accountant and Bookkeeper. Perhaps I will "share" the File Location of the Quickbook resources and make certain that they are too following this same procedure.

Need more support?
