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. Defining your host
  3. Publishing your first app

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) Define 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.

  1. First you need to install MyQuickCloud, the download will start automatically.
  2. Once it has finished downloading, click to run the installer.
  3. Once it has finished installing you will need to click the green ‘Continue with Online Setup’ button.
  4. Then, go back to your browser and click the blue ‘I’ve finished the installer’ button, right at the bottom of the page – see the animation above.

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.

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

3) Publish your first app

From the online setup there are 2 app types to choose from. You can modify your app or create more in the desktop application later.

If you are looking to share your host computer with new users it’s best to choose MyWorkspace. If you are wanting to connect to  an existing Windows desktop, it’s best to choose MyDesktop. A more complete explanation can be found in our knowledgebase – Do I choose MyWorkspace, MyDesktop or MyApplication?
