Always On Audit Trail Wins Favorite QuickBooks Accountant Feature in Week Three Survey

Article Post Date
November 15th 2010 by Kim Amsbaugh

Last week, Intuit ProLine News Central asked: What is your favorite older QuickBooks Accountant feature (2005-2008)?

Voters chose between Always On Audit Trail, Invoice Generator, Online Banking and Toggle.

Throughout the week, it was a constant back-and-forth between Always On Audit Trail and Toggle, with Always On Audit Trail ultimately winning by only one vote as the favorite older feature (circa 2005-2008) in QuickBooks Accountant.

Not familiar with Always On Audit Trail? The “always on” aspect of this feature was launched in QuickBooks 2006. Prior to 2006, Audit Trail could be turned on and off making it harder to track changes to QuickBooks files and transactions.

Always On Audit Trail helps minimize errors by recording all deletions, modifications and edits your clients make to transactions. And every time you create a new Company file, the Audit Trail automatically turns on and locks… so data is always safe. You also can set closing dates and passwords to prevent prior-period changes, and run reports at any time to verify changes. And because a check or invoice cannot be printed without QuickBooks saving it first, a record of such as transaction is also left in the audit trail.

You can also participate in our Week Four Survey, “Which new feature in QuickBooks Accountant 2011 do you think will increase your productivity the most?” Vote each week to be entered to win our weekly $2500 sweepstakes.

You can learn more about QuickBooks Accountant 2011 as well as the other winning features (Working Trial Balance and Accountant’s Copy) on our website.
