QuickBooks: Alerts

Alerts are important messages about QuickBooks or your business that appear in your Reminders list. For example, you might receive an alert that there is an update to QuickBooks that you need to download.

TAKE ACTION ON AN ALERT
-Go to the Company menu and click Reminders.

-Click the alert you want to take action on.

-If you click an alert with a lightning bolt next to it, QuickBooks connects to the Internet for the information you need.

You can only dismiss an alert from the Reminders list window.

DISMISS AN ALERT
-Go to the Company menu and click Reminders.

-Right-click on the alert you want to remove and choose Mark As Done.

VIEWING ALL ALERTS

-Go to the Company menu and click Alerts Manager.

-You'll see a list of all alerts that have appeared on the Reminders list. This list includes all alerts that you've dismissed.

-In rare instances, this list will not display an alert because the alert was a time-sensitive one that has expired. Also, alerts may not display on the list because they're no longer relevant.
