Should the QuickBooks Automatic Update be used or not

Now the answer to this question is not easy. If the supported QuickBooks version is used by you then you will notice that Intuit is pushing the bug fixes or new features through the update mechanism. These updates will be obtained by the feature of Automatic Update and they will forward it to your system and ask you whether you want them installed when you will start using QuickBooks next time.

The following points should be kept in mind about the updates

  • Once the process of updating gets started it takes time.
  • Sometimes converting a file is required for the process of updating. This may include taking the backup, shutting down the process of your business for some time, or getting everybody out of the program
  • If the updates are installed by one user then every other user has to get the update installed.

Whether Automatic Updates can be used or not?

Important: It happens many time that updates that you receive may be important to fix some significant bugs. For example: your sales tax feature is having a bug and which is also having impact on the report and it should need fixation. Here, keeping your product up-to-date becomes very important.

It could be a Pain: When an update notice appears on your screen it isn't at all difficult to say yes to an install. The feature is not controlled centrally and notice is seen by every user. Someone might be bound to tap on Install Now at a time that is not appropriate.
