To install Webgility on additional computers, please follow the steps below:
Webgility Desktop follows a “Client Server Architecture” wherein we install the Webgility application on the server computer first and then on the add-on computers.
To use Webgility in a multi-user environment wherein the Webgility application is installed on multiple computers, remember that all Webgility users need to be on the same Local Area Network and easily accessible to each other.
It is imperative that the admin/primary computer has the Webgility application as well as the accounting software (QuickBooks Desktop) already installed and connected with each other before we start the installation process on the add-on computers.
The add-on computers should also have the QuickBooks Desktop application installed. This is a mandated requirement for the Webgility application to connect with QuickBooks Desktop on the add-on computers.
