Intuit created a four part series of QuickBooks Support Knowledge Base articles that in their entirety provide a reasonably complete guide to dealing with QuickBooks performance problems. Unfortunately Intuit did not publish the entire compliment of information into some sort of downloadable guide. One must labor through Intuit’s QuickBooks Support website’s confusing navigation to obtain the information.
I completed this page for a reference that may help you to locate the solution to your QuickBooks performance problem. I also compiled all the pages into a downloadable guide for your convenience. Make no mistake, all the credit goes to Intuit for publishing this information.
Resolve QuickBooks Performance Issues:
Part 1 – Overview When working with QuickBooks over a network or with a large company file, you may experience certain types of performance issues relating to slowness, taking a long time to open, or other similar behavior.
Part 2 – Improve QuickBooks performance on your network Many types of networks are in use today to run QuickBooks. Not all of them will run QuickBooks effectively.
Part 3 – Manage your computers You can increase the performance of QuickBooks by enhancing your server and workstations.
Part 4 – Manage your data file If you are having issues with the performance of your QuickBooks installation, your company file may be the root cause.
