Setup accountant account to get accountant access to correct a reconcile error. Now I can't get back to QBO.

I made an error in reconciliation, and a troubleshooting guide said to invite myself as the QBOA.  Thus, I did that and used the same email as QBO.  This worked, and was able to see ability to undo a reconcile.   However, I logged out and tried to get back into just QBO.   Apparently the troubleshooting guide was not clear that if you do this, you can never get back to just QBO.   So... I am stuck in QBOA view and can't manage my QBO subscription, QBO account settings, QBO users or anything else QBO account related.

What I tried :

Per other threads, I tried creating another "Team" member under QBOA and transferring QBOA to the new team member master admin access.  I was able to make the transfer.   I then de-activated the other team member because there is no delete a team member (weird).   After it was deactivated I thought for sure that I would now get access back to the QBO using that de-activated QBOA team member.   However, now I can't get into either QBOA or QBO with that QBO user.

It seems that you guys have a one-to-one relationship of emails to all products.   I think even my quicken account is now messed up because I used that email as the new master admin.  

In any case, this is fairly frustrating as I have to close the books on Thursday night (August 2nd, 2018) for the non-profit org I volunteer for and need to get QBO access back.   Please advise as soon as possible.


Let's make sure you can close your books, ploofer.

The steps you've followed is one of the resolutions that we recommend once you want to undo a reconciliation at once. Let's try to reset your password so that you can access your QuickBooks Online Accountant account.

Next, we can change the email address of your QBOA using the email change request process. Once you submit your request, this should be completed within 3-4 business hours. 

While waiting for the email request, you can start to undo the reconciliation using QuickBooks Online Accountant's view. Then, click the company file and you can now close your book.

Otherwise, if you're still unable to retrieve your account, please call our Phone Support Team.

If you need anything else, you can always leave a comment and mention me anytime.

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.
