Getting set up for the first time with MyQuickCloud

About this guide

This guide is aimed at getting new users started with MyQuickCloud through our online setup. You don’t need to be technical, just follow the steps to start working remotely.

Once you have completed these steps you can view our other guides including how to set up your subscription and how to get started with QuickBooks.

In this guide we’re going to go through the following steps:
  1. Creating your account
  2. Setup your host
  3. Restart your computer
  4. Go to your dashboard

If you prefer you can watch our getting started video at the bottom of this guide.

1) Create Your Account

Creating your account is easy, simply click the button below to open the signup page in a new tab and fill out all of the details.

2) Setup your host

The host is the computer with the programs on it that you want to access remotely. If you aren’t on your host computer now, you can close your browser and log in from our website to carry on where you left off.

Animated setup host step
  1. First, select ‘Setup Now’ to setup your PC as the host. This lets you access your PC remotely.
  2. The MyQuickCloud download will start automatically.
  3. Once it has finished downloading, click to run the installer.

If you get stuck simply open a chat with our support team using the green ‘Chat Now’ button at the bottom of your screen or go to our contact page.

3) Finish the installation and reboot your PC

Next you’ll need to add your PC as the host. To do you’ll need to tell Windows you are happy for this PC to become your host. The Windows Elevation prompt will appear automatically – see the animation above. If you are not a Windows Administrator it will ask you to enter the login details of someone on that PC who is an administrator.

Finally, reboot your computer to finish the installation. Once complete, log in to myquickcloud.com to access your dashboard.

A MyWorkspace app is automatically added to your dashboard to get you started. It lets you log in to your PC as your MyQuickCloud user so you can work at the same time as a user on the host. If you want to access your usual Windows user, click the plus button on the dashboard to create a new app. You can see the difference between the app types in our guide – Do I choose MyDesktop, MyApplication or MyWorkspace?
