  1. Recurring Transactions - More automation upon template setup

    Recurring transactions: I create recurring transactions and I want them to post 60 days out so I can better plan my cash flow. It would be nice if when I create the recurring transaction template, QuickBooks Online automatically enters the transactions that will occur in the next 60 days. Currently, I have to make the recurring transaction template then go add all of the transactions for each week/month , etc. that are between now and 60 days from now. A little more automation would be nice.

      • Price change based on quantity of item

        We would LOVE if you offered multiple pricing for a single product -- dependent either on customer or on quantity purchased. For example, we sell analog photographic prints. Since most of the labor is in the setup, we discount additional copies made from the same negative. Right now, it looks like I have to create separate line items.

                        • Make the online edition the same as the desktop by having the same feature for defining an discount items

                          You need to have the ability to define items in the online version just like there is in the desktop version, that allows you to create discount items for various customers or products that allow EITHER percentages OR fixed amounts. Currently in the online version you can only manually enter percentage discounts, no ability to create custom percentage amounts. For example I have various types of customers whom I need to offer discounts of 16% or 25% but I can't define these as items I have to add them to each invoice using the discount feature. Further all the discounts…

                            • Link Vendors to Products & Enable Multicurrency

                              I would like to be able to set up a vendor for each product in my products and services list. In addition, if products are bought outside of the US (Mexico, Europe, Asia, etc.), I would like to be able to select the currency that I purchase my product or service in.

                              As a US subsidiary of a European company I have to deal with purchasing my core products from them all the time. Also, the currency I purchase in is always EUR.

                              • supplier communication through the email set in the location

                                In Location setting, it allows to put in different email for customer communication. It will be helpful if this apply to supplier as well as we have different location looking after different suppliers. Now all purchase order get send to me and I need to forward to the relevant departments.

                                • Can you guys please update the customer list function so that I can get fax numbers on a separate column please?

                                  Can you guys please update the customer list function so that I can get fax numbers on a separate column please? I would think this to be a basic function that should have been there in the first place. Right now the phone and fax numbers get bunched up on the same column and that makes it difficult to manage a mass fax list to communicate with my customers.

                                    • All addition of Product to Types list

                                      When I set up my company I didn't say PRODUCTS & service. Now I can't add a new PRODUCT only a new service to my Product/Service list. Suggestion--allow addition of different product types either in the Lists menu or the company preferences.

                                        • Startup. Step by step instructions disappear after file is uploaded to QBO

                                          Before file is uploaded to QBO, there are step by step instructions for reports to run to check accuracy of uploaded data. Those instructions suddenly disappear once the data is uploaded and can't be found again. There seems to be a big disconnect between prestart and startup that needs to be once continuous process that doesn't just stop once the file is uploaded.
