How to Assign a New User in Peachtree Accounting Software


Peachtree Accounting is accounting software produced by Sage Software. The program has undergone several updates and version numbers which added additional features and utilities. The core functions of Peachtree Accounting, however, have remained the same. To provide security and unwanted access to the accounts created within Peachtree Accounting, access is restricted to those who have a username and password. New users can be created and added to the program as needed.

  • Open the Peachtree Accounting software, click "Maintain," and select "Users."

  • Press "OK" in the window notifying you that you are about to create users.

  • Enter a username in the "User ID:" box.

  • Type a password in the "Password:" box.

  • Click the box in the "Control" column next to "System." A drop down menu will appear allowing you to choose the access restrictions for the "System." Choose the access restriction from the drop down list.

  • Repeat Step 5 for the "Sales," "Purchases," "General Ledger," "Payroll" and "Inventory rows.

  • Click the "Save" button at the top of the window to save the new user.
