About this guide #
This guide is aimed at showing new users how to set up MyQuickCloud so they can work from home (or anywhere!). You don’t need to be technical, just follow the steps to get everything ready.
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: #
- Creating your account
- Setup your computer
- Add MyDesktop to your user
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.
Set up your computer #
The computer you want to setup here is the computer with the programs on it that you want to access remotely. If you aren’t on that computer now, you can close your browser, move to that PC and log in from our website to carry on where you left off.
Click Connect in the main menu and then follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the MyQuickCloud Host installer.
3) Publish your first app #
If you want to work remotely, you probably want to connect to your existing desktop and documents that you use on the host (but from another location).
Click to configure user access, click your user and then choose to toggle MyDesktop. This lets you access your computer by logging in as your existing Windows user.
You can learn more about different MyQuickCloud connection types in our support center.
Please note – You can’t connect to your own user while logged in as that same user (it causes Windows to become very confused). But log in as yourself on a remote device, be it a laptop, Mac, Android, or iOS device, and you will see how it will work when you are away.
Just remember – To leave your host on and not in sleep mode to make it available. If you can’t guarantee your host will always be online, take a look at our Managed Cloud Server solution.
And that’s it! You’re all set. Just click the app on your dashboard to work remotely!
