Chapter 13. Security > Setting Up the Administrator

Setting Up the Administrator

QuickBooks provides a login and password system that enables you to restrict which users can view and change your company's financial information. To take advantage of this security system, you must first designate someone as the administrator. The person with administrative rights (this can be more than one person) has the right to view all company records and make changes to any existing transactions.

Set Up the Administrator

Select Set Up Users from the Company menu.

Enter a name for the administrator. Admin has already been entered, but you can replace this with a different name.

Enter a password. It can be no more than 16 characters and can include spaces.

Enter the password again.

Click OK.
