Since updating the QB online desktop app, it is not working. I open the app, the sign in screen pops up but after i sign in it is just a blank white screen. No error msg

It worked fine before the last update (well, if you consider having problems all the time with this app fine...).  I get no error messages just a blank white screen after signing in.  Nothing loads.   I have done all the suggestions i could find:   Uninstall and reinstall app, clear cookies/cache/history, reboot computer/modem/router, open app with function key held (did nothing), open app with Shift key (nothing), ctrl key (nothing).  sign in/out, etc.

It's been down for 2 days now.  my account works fine if i go online and use it that way.   For $50/mo i expect better performance and less failure.  I'm running a business and this is frustrating and time wasting.

@joel, try these:

  • Clear the app's cache by going to the File menu and choosing Clear Cache.
  • Reset the app by holding down the Shift key while opening the program. Continue to hold down the key until the program opens up. 
  • Reinstall the app through this link: Scroll down to the Get the QuickBooks Mac or Windows App section and click Free Download.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
