Finally after a long wait, Quickbooks 2019 has been released on the 17 September 2018.  This year, the Quickbooks desktop engineers have done a lot of work to improve the functionality and the workflow. Mentioned below are the major changes:

1: Moving the file to a different computer made simple:

Transferring the company file from one computer to the other is now a simple process.  A new option under File-Utilities has been added by the name of “move quickbooks to another computer” and it will guide you to move your file from the old computer to the new one. It is a great feature for people who are not that tech savvy.

 

2: Online backup enhancement:

It is a great benefit for people using Intuit Data protect as a backup feature. The new messaging feature has been enhanced making it easier for customers to set up and have their data file backed up. The backup status also shows up on the right hand side of the screen along with a hyperlink to start the backup feature.

3: Data condense is lot easier:

This is a completely new feature in Quickbooks 2019 wherein you get 2 options to condense the file. You have the choice to either remove the Audit trail and keep all the history or remove certain transactions removing the history.

4: New changes have been made in IIF file Import:

Even though IIF import has been used extensively with QuickBooks Desktop, it has a history of file corruption resulting from improperly structured IIF files, formatting errors and a lack of error checking by QuickBooks during the import process. New to QuickBooks Desktop 2019, there is an improved IIF Import Functionality that provides SDK verification and validation routines during data import.

5: Sick time warning:

Quickbooks 2019 has been developed with a new feature wherein you get a warning message if  your employee uses too much of sick time, this feature helps in decreasing the chances of human errors. (this feature is available for active payroll users only)

6: Invoice history:

This is a new feature and it gives a lot of flexibility to check the invoice details. This feature allows you to check the invoice creation date, invoice email date,  viewed, payment & deposit date in one click. Quite a handy new tool.

7: Credits transfer for Customers and Jobs:

This is a huge time saver, this features allows you to apply credit Memos across all Jobs for a customer.

8:Check to Pay Bill:

This feature works when a client writes checks and bypasses the pay bill part of QuickBooks. QuickBooks will prompt and guide to link the check with an open bill if you are trying to write a check instead of bill payment check.

9: Quickbooks upgrade has been simplified:

You will be able to check this feature once Quickbooks 2020 is released. This feature enables you to search your old intuit account during upgrade and doesn’t let you create a new intuit account which was a great mess in the past.

We all know how important our data can be specially when it comes to business data. Data backup and data recovery are important parts of running a business. We should realize three things quickly: all computer systems crash, all humans error, and disasters happen when least expected or when we are not prepared for it.

In the article I am going to show you how you can backup your Quickbooks Desktop data online for free. There are multiple free tools to do that, however, I would suggest you to use Google drive or Onedrive (Outlook) as  it is widely used  due to ease of access. The screenshots that I have used is for Onedrive (outlook) but the same can be done  with Google drive as well. You can accomplish the goal of backing up your quickbooks desktop data online in two different steps. First getting up the Onedrive or Google drive:  Two:  Scheduling auto backup from Quickbooks desktop.

Setting up Onedrive

1: Create an Outlook account, Click here to create one.

2: Download one drive and install it. Once installed you will see Onedrive folder on file explorer as shown below

By default you will have Picture, Document and Public folder but my suggestion is to create a dedicated folder for Quickbooks backups as shown in the picture.

That’s it. Now that we are done with stage one, lets move to stage two.

 

Scheduling Auto backup from Quickbooks Desktop.

Things to remember before scheduling auto-back from Quickbooks desktop.

a: If you have multiple Quickbooks file, then you need to individually open every file and schedule the backup for it.

b: make sure the time that you select for autoback to happen during that time your computer should be powered on or else it will skip that backup.

Have you ever encountered this error on Quickbooks Desktop?

Error Code: 80029c4a Description:Error loading type library/DLL while trying to open your company file?

In this article i am going to discuss why its happening and how to identify the point of failure and the fix for it.

first we need to identify if the problem is with the Quickbooks Software or your Quickbooks Company file, In order to check that try opening a sample company file. If the sample file opens fine it clearly means that the problem area is your quickbooks company file and you might have to restore a good backup copy or send it for recovery.  A data file can be damaged because of multiple reasons like power failure, incorrect multi-user setup, human error and many more.

And ff you are getting the same error while opening a sample file as well it means that the problem area is your Quickbooks Software and there could be couple is fixes for it.

Solution 1:

The first step would be to update your quickbooks to the latest release. Again there are two ways to update quickbooks, Automatic & manual. I would suggest to go for the manual update.  Click here to get the latest updates for Quickbooks .

 

Solution 2:

An antivirus can also be a point of failure, disable your antivirus and check if you are able to open your quickbooks successfully or not because at times antivirus software treats some quickbooks components as virus and tries to block then. If disabling your antivirus helps then configure it with Quickbooks allowing full access.

 

Solution 3:

Repair or reinstall your quickbooks. At times repair and reinstall do work but if you really want to save some time then go for a clean install of quickbooks which is a guaranteed fix where in the problem area is the software itself.

 

Following the above troubleshooting steps religiously will surely resolve your issue.
