    Although certain users are restricted from viewing bank and financial details, the activity is still shown on the front page. Even when the home page is private. Please can we restrict what users see this!!

    • Merge QB Self-Employed into QB Online

      Merge Quickbooks Online Self-Employed into Quickbooks Online instead of having it separate. Pass-through companies (LLC, S Corp, Sole Proprietorship) really need the features in Self-Employed.

      • allow users to opt out of 6 digit code security verification...I am not receiving the email for the code holding up workflow

        the 6 digit code verification should be optional. if you have outlook 365 we don't receive the code, creating workflow stoppages as we can't do anything without the code. make it optional, ie: turn it off

        • Make invoice change notification Optional

          Your feature of sending notifications to customers "automatic updates to online invoice page" is a great idea, EXCEPT, it should be a feature that can be turned on or off so that the customer isn't inundated by emails which confuse them, especially if we are trying to correct errors made that does not affect the client.

          Please make this a toggle that we can use when we want, instead of all the time.

                  • View multiple screens

                    I would like to be able to view multiple screens at once like I was able to on the desktop version. For example: when reconciling, I would like to be able to view my checkbook register and make adjustments at the same time, if for example, I forgot to record something. As of now, I have to choose "reconcile later" and go out of the reconcile screen and go into check register.

                      • Automated voucher no.

                        When we create new voucher type, the voucher serial no. should be made automatic. Only invoice numbers are automated but not other type of vouchers.

                            • CRITICAL ISSUE WITH ESTIMATES

                              I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU MISSED THIS! PLEASE MAKE IT A PRIORITY TO MODIFY THE ESTIMATE SHEETS SO A COST ANALYSIS CAN BE DONE. AS YOU CAN SEE ON MY DESKTOP VERSION. I CAN DO THE FOLLOWING.
                              1. DISCOUNT EACH LINE ITEM BY APPLYING A MARKUP %
                              2. DISCOUNT THE ENTIRE QUOTE BECAUSE I CAN VIEW MY ACTUAL COST AND KNOW I OR MY EMPLYOYEES ARE ABLE TO SEE THE PROFIT OF THE SALE IN REAL TIME AND NOT SELLING FOR LESS THAN OUR COST
                              3. DISCOUNT EACH LINE ITEM AND APPLY AN ADDITIONAL DISCOUNT FOR ENTIRE ORDER.

                              IF IT IS…

                                • custom fields in customers and suppliers, tax groups edit/delete

                                  Hi. Please add functionality to add custom fields in suppliers and customers. Many necessary fields are missing and we don't have any option to add that important information anywhere. Also try to give an edit or delete option to the tax groups created by us. Any help regarding this would be appreciable. Thank you.

                                  • multiple activity tables on an invoice.

                                    I would like to categorize my invoices more. I would like to have a separate activity table for materials, another for labour, another for equipment, etc. Each table would show a subtotal and then add together for a final total at the end of the invoice.

                                    • Enable bulk editing of PayPal transactions -- such as "Class" assignment

                                      The PayPal import feed works great. Except it's missing at least one thing: the ability to bulk assign a "Class" based on logic or query or bank rule or anyway more efficient than clicking to edit each transaction.

                                      Xero treats PayPal feeds just like any other bank feed, so I can review and bulk edit/approve each transaction payee, account, description, & class before it hits my GL. I can also apply bank rules.

                                      Currently, with QBO, once the Paypal transaction is imported it's in, and when dealing with a large set of data, how can I really ensure each transaction…

                                        It would be great if QB had an inbox. When we receive vendor invoices, customer purchase orders, etc. If we could drop them into an inbox that we could see in the activity list it would help a lot.
