    Unfortunately, after many hours investigating this feature, we keep hitting issues at various points. Once we have one obstacle solved, another one presents itself. It is therefore with regret that we'll need to close this idea and mark as 'will not implement'.

    A special shout out to our dev team who spent a lot of personal, unpaid time on this whilst trying to solve.

    Hi. This request is for DESKTOP as yep, this is possible in HOSTED. Sorry for any confusion caused.

    I have achieved this by opening two different browsers (Chrome and Edge) and using two separate user logons on the same PC. The two browser sessions are not aware of each other so can operate independently. This is not an ideal solution because it involves needing access to a second logon.

    A word of caution is that one needs to be very aware of which company you are working in ....

    Even providing read only access to the second company file would be useful to me to lookup data or just how you did an infrequent transaction in another company file.

    I agree, this is long overdue.

    You could try split screen display mode on your computer? Simply open the first data file, right click anywhere on the task bar and select display windows side by side, open the other file and drag it by the tab to the other half of the screen.

    You should now see the two files side by side.

    This would be very helpful and time saving.
