Are You New To QuickBooks?

Here are a few tips for a smooth start to QuickBooks!

Always back up:
There is no such thing as too many back ups, always back up after each session. You can back 
up to a network drive, external drive, CD, or to the Intuit Data Protect service. Before you do 

anything in QuickBooks that you’re are unfamiliar with, make a backup, and then move forward.


Memorized Report List:

Whenever you change the settings for a report, you can record those changes by saving the 

report in the Memorized Report list. Then when you want to create a similar report, you can just 

go to the Memorized Report list to reuse those settings.


Add your favorites to the icon bar!
Save time by customizing your icon bar by adding the features and reports that you open daily 

or weekly. You can add most windows to the icon bar by going to View menu and choosing 

Add [Window name] to Icon Bar.
