How to Fine-Tune the Service Connection in QuickBooks 2017

By Stephen L. Nelson

QuickBooks has a setting that lets you fine-tune the service connection. The My Preferences tab of the Service Connection Preferences dialog box provides two check boxes you can select to control how QuickBooks works when you’re making web connections. One check box gives you the option of saving downloaded files. The other tells QuickBooks not to close your web browser when it finishes using the web.

For the Service Connection Preferences dialog box, two Company Preferences options are available. You can, for example, indicate whether QuickBooks should automatically connect to QuickBooks Services without asking for a password or whether it should always ask for a password.

To make this decision, you simply select the appropriate radio button. You can also select the Allow Background Downloading of Service Messages check box to tell QuickBooks that background collection of messages is okay. (If you select this check box, QuickBooks downloads new messages during idle times so that it doesn’t slow your other Internet activities.)
