Hi - I'm the treasurer of a small, all volunteer, non-profit and am planning to request a version of QB once Techsoup has validated our 501.c.3 status. I use Quicken for my personal financial records and added an account for the organization. The problem is that I'm the only person who has access to that information. I've been exporting the information to an Excel spreadsheet and then posting at google drive, but I thought I could improve the process by using QB so other board officers could access our transaction records directly. Also, I'll be rotating off the board next year and will need to turn all the financial records currently on my computer over to the new treasurer. Not everyone has Qucken, of course. I thought QB could be transferred to whoever takes my place. Also, if the QB information is in the cloud, other board officers could also have access to it. Has anyone else had experience with this? From the descriptions, it looks like the regular QB is available in the cloud and can be accessed by more than one user. The non-profit version is a download, however, and the less expensive version is limited to one user. I'm not sure I correctly understand the differences between the products and how they work. Also, I'm wondering what the non-profit version offers that is missing from the regular version. We have a fairly small donor base and do not use a separate donor accounting system. Can anyone provide information about how these two versions work and what the differences are? Thank you.
Hi, and welcome to TechSoup!
Here are some earlier TechSoup discussions that might help:
Intuit also has an online community for QuickBooks users that might be able to help.
