Using the QuickBooks Allow Background Downloading of Service Messages
If you use QuickBooks services on the Internet, there is an option to Allow Background Downloading of Service Messages—which means that QuickBooks will check the Intuit website for updates and information periodically when you are connected to the Internet. Keep in mind that these are just informational messages. To have QuickBooks automatically download updates you must turn on the automatic updates feature. To tell QuickBooks whether or not you want the Intuit website checked automatically:
- Choose Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks menu bar.
- Click the Service Connection icon on the left pane and then click the Company Preferences tab.
- Click the Allow Background Downloading Of Service Messages checkbox to enable this feature (or clear the checkbox to disable the feature).
- Click OK to save this setting.
