  1. Allow us to scroll through the entire check register, not page by page

    Everything about QB Online should simplify our work experience, not add more steps or time delays in doing data entry. Please take away the restricted limitations in things such as scrolling through the check register. Having to click on the page button is one more thing that makes me extremely frustrated while using this version.

    • multiple currency handling ability

      Quickbooks online should be able to handle multiple currency. Vendors are paid in different currency and customers billed in different currency. We import in USD and our customers are in Canada so we bill in CAD.

      • IP user and or time of day restrictions

        IP user and or time of day restrictions to restrict out of business hours usage. I am uncomfortable allowing some staff having unrestricted access all evening and weekends.

        • Limit Access by IP Address and Day/Time

          Allow Companies to restrict access by IP address... I want to have an outside bookkeeper come in to do work, but I don't want them logging in from home to do these things. Nor do I want them just logging on and poking around at all hours. A login time restriction would also be helpful.

          • Need GST Inclusive or Exclusive as a Global Setting Default for Australia Customers

            We all need "GST INCLUSIVE" to hold as a global setting rather than just per customer. GST inclusive setting needs to be a default or just hold when it's used in a sales receipt and invoice.

            • Custom User Access

              More flexibility is needed in the custom user access area. It is pretty much all or next to nothing now, and some rights conflict. We need it to be customizable!

              • Auto Decimal Point Setting

                We need a setting that allows us to set an automatically placed decimal, instead of always being required to enter the decimal point to post amounts less than a dollar.

                  • Make ability to Change from Pledge to Invoice

                    No ability to change "Pledge" name back to "Invoice" after company started. Please note that not all Non-Profits are pledge based. This is an extremely problematic issue for our non-profit since we are an membership-based educational organization providing workshops and conferences that are fee-based.

                    • Purchase Order Template Format

                      All forms should be basically customizable.

                      Purchase Orders should be customizable.

                      For example, we should be able to tailor the form to include FOB location for an order and a Due Date for each line item. Some minor formatting adjustments would also be nice.

                      • Arabic support urgently please. Ayn

                        Dear All,
                        Its well known that a lot of Arabic people are using QB and you already design QBO for UAE.
                        Please add the Arabic Support, now it's urgently needed to correct the direction of the font in your PDF (when email or print) or at least let conversion to PDF done from our PCs.
                        All the best

                        • Get rid of repetitive pop up help messages....VERY ANNOYING!!!

                          When you are trying to work you don't need these thing popping up and blocking the area you are trying to work in. I have to click on the cog wheel several times before I can get the messages to go away. HIGHLY annoying and time consuming. We need a way to disable them once and for all.

                            • Support for single sign-on

                              Please allow for user management to support single sign-on (SSO) access to QBO where QBO users can be authenticated against a third party identity provider such as Google, etc. through standard Open ID or SAML based authentication methods.

                              Presently, QBO acts only as an identity provider, not consumer. If I want to use SSO with QBO, I have to manage all of my domain users within QBO.

                              As you know, username/password based authentication is terribly insecure, and allows for easy sharing of account credentials. This is something I want to limit, especially considering the sensitive nature of the data within…

                              • User restrictions - increase the options

                                More customisation of User restrictions to allow certain areas to be worked on but no access to others.
                                EG I do the books remotely for one company where the receptionist enters the cheques from the chequebook. That is the only thing I want them to be able to do.
                                Or entering invoices but not payments.
                                Small businesses often want to keep financial information private and the limited restrictions are completely useless to me

                                  • Search

                                    Search is a big thing...in the world where Google is making search so simple... searching on QB is a big hassle. I want to see anything and everything that relates to the keyword I type..... for example,...if i type Dallas...bring up all customers in Dallas, any customer whose name has Dallas, any vendors in Dallas, any job description that has Dallas in it.... anything and everything....

                                    • Spanish Translation!

                                      Translate into spanish, please!! The Google web translator is a good option, but limited. No way to modify all the fixed text in invoices, for example... and there are millions of spanish speaking possible clients!

                                        • We need charts and graphs

                                          Some of us process data better visually. It's pretty surprising that there are still no graphs or charts available in the online edition, even now. I mean really, this is 2012.

                                          Telling people in the official support forum that they should export their data to Excel and create graphs that way is pretty embarassing.
