Changes to Master Options not updating for some workstations

I have been the Network Admin for over 20 years.  I am accustomed to making changes in the Master Options (when all users are out of Lacerte) and updating the options so they apply to all workstations on the network. I have never had a problem until the last couple of months.  Lately I have made changes to the Master Options (such as updating interest rates or adding a new tax preparer) and I see the changes when I use the program on my computer; however, other users on the network do not see the changes on their computers.  Why would this happen?  I had to go to another employee's computer, sign in to the Master Options using my password, and make the changes.  Then it worked and the updates were seen by everyone on the network.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
