accounts receivable slow to post- just upgraded to 2019 - ran all utilities to clean data, condensed, got a new server. Posting AR takes 1-3 minutes each transaction

All other areas of QBE are great, just AR takes forever to post. 


Hello there, llamantia

I appreciate you taking the steps to help speed up the performance when posting an accounts receivable (A/R) transaction.

Don’t you worry; I’m here to ensure that you can create the transaction fast and in no time.

The company file may be large and that’s why your A/R transaction takes 1-3 minutes to be posted.

Let’s first make sure that QuickBooks is compatible with your setup, it’s very essential to know the system requirements. Please go through this article for more information: QuickBooks Desktop 2019 System Requirements.

Then, let’s open a sample file. This way, we can determine if its program or computer specific and it helps further isolate this issue.

Here’s how to open a sample file:

  1. Open your QuickBooks,
  2. In the No Company Open page, choose Open a sample file.

Once the sample file is opened, let’s try to post a transaction to check if it works.

If QuickBooks still posts the transaction slowly, I’d recommend performing the solutions below to help resolve performance issues.

  1. Set company and personal preferences.
  2. Optimize QuickBooks operations.
  3. Maintain lists.

Feel free to comment below how the steps above work for you, llamantiaI’m here anytime you need further assistance. Have a great day!

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.
