Why is the mileage not always tracking my miles? How can I improve that?


Getting your mileage tracker back up and running is my priority, lilith.erlenbusc.

The last thing I want is for you to be paying for a subscription you’re not using. I’d like to some information on how to get your mobile app working as it was before.

To start with, there are several possible reasons your mileage tracking stops from working. Two of which is your mobile phone’s settings and the version of the mobile app. The latest version for QuickBooks Self-Employed Mileage Tracker and Taxes is 4.40.

In the meantime, let’s download the latest version of the mobile. Here’s how:

  1. Go to your iPhone’s home screen.
  2. Tap on the App Store icon.
  3. Tap the Update icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  4. Locate the QuickBooks Self-Employed mobile app.
  5. Tap the Update button at the top of the screen.
  6. Enter your password and wait for your apps to update. Some apps may have an alert you’ll need to respond to before the update will install, so wait a few seconds in case one comes up so you can acknowledge it.
  7. Turn on and turn off your device to ensure all app components are updated. 
  8. Try opening the mobile app again.

On the other hand, with the release of iOS 12, you can have your iOS device update automatically  to ensure that all of your downloaded apps are in sync with it.

If mileage tracking is still not working, I’d suggest contacting our Customer Care Team. A specialist will be able to further check on the root cause of your concern via remote access.

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.
