Move the OnDemand Version
This topic is only for users of the OnDemand Version of ACCOUNTS. All other users should go to Move the Program from One Computer to Another for full instructions. If you aren't positive which version you have, go to the Help ⇒ About ACCOUNTS menu option in the program and check the text under the version number in the window that appears.
For various reasons you may need to move ACCOUNTS from one computer to another, or add it to an additional computer. This would include changing staff (such as Treasurers) in your organization, upgrading to a new computer, or rebuilding your computer after a hard disk crash. (That's not technically another computer, but since the hard disk has been rebuilt or replaced, it has the same effect as if it was another computer!)
The instructions in this page are also not relevant to switching from the OnDemand version to any other version of ACCOUNTS (covered here) or from any other version to the OnDemand version (covered here).
As long as you are up to date on your payments for ACCOUNTS, and thus entitled to log into your OnDemand Version, there is no charge for this - the program is licensed for any number of users in your organization, not merely for a specific individual or computer.
To move the program, you will need to follow a few steps:
1.On the new computer, download and install the OnDemand Client program from the OnDemand page on the program's web site, at https://www.software4nonprofits.com/accounts/ondemand.htm#download.
2.Just run that client program and login with your usual user name and password.
3.The only other thing that might be required, if this is for a new user, is for the Site Administrator for this database to set up a login for that new user - see OnDemand User Management for details.
