QuickBooks Offers No Solution for Sending Large Files
An article posted by QuickBooks support, “Sending or receiving a QuickBooks file that is too large to be e-mailed” immediately caught our attention. For a product that is so widely adopted by accountants, we couldn’t believe that QuickBooks doesn’t offer a viable solution for sending it’s large files to clients, customers, or even internal colleagues.
The article suggests inconsistent, often ineffective methods to share/send your large QuickBooks file(s) … everything from compression to flash drives is on their list. These options don’t work:
- You can’t rely on email because it doesn’t provide any notification upon delivery so there is no way to know whether or not the file was received.
- Compression isn’t a good option because even if the file is small enough to be sent via email after it’s compressed, there is no guarantee that the person receiving it will have the appropriate software to unpack it.
- Flash and physical drives can’t possibly be your answer because not only is it very easy to loss them, but you’d have to hand deliver or mail them creating an additional cost and opportunity for the loss or theft of your data.
These alternatives add too many extra steps to a process that doesn’t have to be complicated.
