Within QuickBooks Online Accountant, Firm Owners (and users with the appropriate administrative access) can specify the access of other users within the firm.


The three levels of access within QuickBooks Online Accountant

Access, for any user, is broken down into the following three categories:

  • Full Access
  • Basic Access 
  • Custom Access

Within each category, there are settings that can be modified to provide the desired access for the user.

Note: When any setting is modified, outside of what is set by selecting Full or Basic access, the access level will be changed to Custom.
