Hi, thank you for bringing this to our attention. I would be glad to help you in setting up the QuickBooks multi-user mode. The Multi-user mode allows you to access the company file from the workstations even when the file is not located on the same computer and also allows multiple users to access the QuickBooks company file at the same time. While setting up QuickBooks multi-user mode we need to keep a lot of things in our mind.
Some of the points that you must keep in mind while setting up QuickBooks multi-user mode are:
