  1. Invoice Payment Date

    How can i run a report that will show the invoice number, the invoice date and the date it was paid. thank you.
    As mentioned, you will need to run built-in Invoice List Report.

    You will be able to see Invoice Number, Invoice Date, but you will not be able to see Invoice Paid Date (other than Paid or Unpaid status).

    If you think, you need this feature, add to feature request feedback (Gear > Your Company > FEEDBACK).

    • task list

      I need a task list or a "Todo" list that I can add to and manage and see easily on my home screen. Why on earth is this on desktop and not online?

          • We need to be able to assign bundles of product and service items to a category. bundles aren't very useful if you can't put them in catego

            Currently you can bundle multiple items into one entry step, but these bundles can't be assigned to a category in your products and services list. For complex clients who are most likely to use bundles, the categories would make this so much more useful!

                • Require GST Registration information on supplier customer card during set up for Australia Customers

                  We have few clients who use small sub-contractor - who may or may not be registered for GST. Whilst capturing card information of that particular supplier / customer, system does not ask for GST code or GST registration status. This means the client or we as accountant has to go through the GST information of the supplier each time. And this becomes messy as the numbers for these sub-contractors increases. Other similar products in the market does have this feature available to capture all this relevant information in the card itself like default expense or sales account, default GST Code…

                  • Allow customers and vendors to be in both lists.

                    We do business with companies that are both Vendors and Clients to our company. As it stands now, a company cannot be listed as both a vendor and client without changing the company name. We would love to have your developers design a fix for allowing inputs for the same company as both a Vendor and Client.

                    • Sort Reports by different criteria, incl. Memo/Description

                      Sorting reports, or even at the level below, i.e. on account history, would be very useful for analytical/review purposes. I.e. forthe attached case I would have liked to determine how many of these were AMX; MC. EF, VI, this would be useful for reconciliation to the monthly Merchant Summary Statement.

                        • Designate what products/services are/aren't discountable

                          Much like how a user can currently designated which products/services are Taxable in QBO, both in the product/service items and as a selected item in an invoice, a user would be able to do the same for discountable items.

                          Being able to mark an item as discountable or non-discountable would be a great benefit in several scenarios:

                          1) Currently when an invoice is discounted, post sub-total, and an employee receives a tip either the employees tip is also discounted or you have to create a separate non-discounted invoice for just the tip. Having the ability to exclude the tip by…

                          • Bulk Contact Update in Excel

                            Hi there,

                            Would LOVE to see functionality in QBO to export the customer list, edit details in bulk, and reimport to QBO to overide existing contact info.

                            This feature is available in Xero and it's amazing!

                            Thanks!
                            Aimee

                            • Allow "Other Names" as the desktop version does.

                              QBO only allows 3 types of names; Customers, Vendors and Employees. An "Other" name type like the desktop version allows is needed. We are a non-profit and we make charitable payments to persons in need. Such persons are not customers, vendors or employees. So the "Other" name type is needed. Please add it.

                              • open windows

                                QBO really needs an open windows list like qb desktop. The multiple tabs open do not have the same ease of use as the list and it really extends my working time. The app is ok, but not as good. Also, the tabs need to be refreshed every time and in qb desktop it didn't.

                                    The new combination of clients and sales is one of the worst "improvements" yet! I need to see clients without having to click through a jillion screens. Boo, hiss on this change.

                                      I would like to be able to add custom fields to expense forms like we can on sales forms and have the following options for both:
                                      1. Mark as required
                                      2. Create a list of acceptable inputs
                                      Thanks!

                                      • Provide the ability to hide pay rates from the Employee Tab

                                        Hard to hide "prying" eyes, and violates privacy. It makes it difficult to work at a desk with access to other employees behind me or interacting with me. Maybe a select-able screen with the info I don't mind others seeing.
