I own 2 stores, one of which is "headquarters." I work at both and would like full access to everything at both stores. How can I do this?

As one example, I would like to enter new items in inventory at both locations.


Thanks for contacting the Community about this, catherine.fleisc,

Let me get the help you need in setting up Full Control access.

Here’s how:

  1. On your server, right-click the folder where your company file is saved, then choose Properties. Location: C:Users\Public\Public Documents\Intuit\QuickBooks Point of SaleXX\Data.
  2. Click the Sharing tab.
  3. Click Advanced Sharing, then choose Share this folder.
  4. Choose Permissions, then click Add.
  5. Type in QBPOSdbsrvuser, then click OK.
  6. Click QBPOSdbsrvuser, then select Full Control. Note: Make sure the permission of Everyone and Services user group are set to Full Control.
  7. Click Apply.
  8. Click OK.

Upon setting up, make sure that the permission of Everyone and Services user group are set to Full Control.

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.
