How do I access the Workforce?

I am trying to access the admin part of Workforce but cannot get to data.  After signing in I get a screen that says by clicking sign in I agree to the privacy statement and I do not have an option to accept or to go on and access the information.  How do I get past this screen so I can view the data?


Hello there, MargieE,

I'm here to provide you the steps how to access your QuickBooks Workforce account.

Since you're trying to open QB Workforce as the administrator, you need to confirm your admin access first by turning on Intuit cloud services in your QuickBooks company file and connect to QuickBooks Workforce.

Here are the steps:

  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks company as the admin.
  2. Go to the Employees menu, then choose Manage Payroll Cloud Services.
  3. Confirm that the QuickBooks Workforce option is selected in the Payroll Cloud Services window.
  4. Enter your payroll service PIN, then select Save Changes.
  5. Select Access Company View.
  6. Enter your Intuit account ID and password, then click Sign In.

Once you've successfully signed in, you can now select the company that you have admin access to.

For the detailed steps and more information about QuickBooks Workforce, you can check out this article: QuickBooks Workforce Company View (I'm the primary Payroll Administrator for my QuickBooks company. How do I access the Company View section).

Keep me posted how it goes by leaving a comment below. I'm just around if you need help.

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.
