Working on a local file with multiple users on the same computer

Hi there.

 

We're using Account Right Premier offline. Is it possible to have the same file open and functional in 2 local user accounts on the same computer, so it doesn't have to be closed before switching to another user account?

I read an older post that suggested setting the file up on a network library, for use on different computers, so it seems to be possible for several people to work on an offline file simultaneosly. Can I just put it in a shared folder for use on the same computer?

 

Thanks,

Annette

Hi @Acu-ease 

 

AccountRight 2020 will handle multiple users logging into the company file from the same computer at the same time. You would be looking at opening two instances of the program and have them each log into one of the instances.

 

In terms of company file storage, the company file would need to be stored in a local drive in relation to those users. This way those users can select the Open a Company File>>My library to access the file. Help Article: Manage libraries has more information on company file storage and what can be done to move the library location if needed.

Kind regards,
Steven
