in multi user cannot print payroll checks if another user is logged in. gives a message that says cannot print the other user is not in the register

the first user is not in the employee files of quickbooks, but it still says cannot print---what good is multi user if two people cannot use it at the same time?


Hi, memelayton

You can still print payroll checks provided that there are no other users working in payroll. The other user might have been damaged, that’s why you’re getting an error while doing so.

To fix this, let’s refresh the user's profile by deleting and recreating it. 

Delete User:

  1. Go to Company at the top and choose Users.
  2. Click Set Up Users and Roles.
  3. Highlight the user from the list and click Delete.
  4. Choose Yes.

Recreate User:

  1. Click Company then choose Users.
  2. Select Set up Users and Roles.
  3. Click New. 

Let me know if you have any other concerns. I'll be here anytime to help you.

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.
