  1. Have a brief description line viewable in invoice list mode

    It would be a really useful feature to have a brief 3 or 4 word description viewable in invoice list mode (maybe next to the number) so it can be quickly identified, without having to open several invoices in order to find a specific one.

    • Inbound shipping added to products and services

      Hello,
      I would like to suggest adding a line in individual products or service for "inbound shipping cost" that would be added to the item cost to give you a total cost. Of course I can now total them together but it would be handy to keep them separated to know where the costs come from.

      Thank you!

              • Direct Transfer of Customized Templates from Desktop to Online versions of Quickbooks

                I am a long-time Quickbooks user and have recently gone to the Quickbooks Online program. I have just spent over an hour with a very helpful support rep attempting to do a very simple (at least to me) process. To import and exported Quickbooks Template file (file.des) into QBO. No such luck or easy process! please create a utility that will allow the easy transfer of templates from QBD to QBO.

                • You really need to add custom fields to items

                  You really need to add custom fields to items like you have in desktop versions. Also, the ability to have sales reps is sorely needed as well.

                      • Add a PROJECT list, and a corresponding field on all the forms (like CLASS), so transactions can be linked to a PROJECT

                        Timesheet entry has a SERVICE selection for "Reimbursible Expense Item", but only allows RATE/HR. Since "Time Entry Only" users need to enter expenses (such as Gas, Tolls, etc.), allow them an option to enter a FLAT AMOUNT, and no hours, on a single time entry ticket.

                              • Make importing customer contact information from excel much more efficient.

                                Make importing customer contact information from excel much more efficient. Right now I have customers put in as just the company name, not the name of the person, and it comes up as unable to import into QBO. Some companies have many people working for them, so I cannot put a name in the customer field, just the company field. If I do put it in both the customer and company fields, it shows up in the First/Middle/Last Name fields when I import them this way. Super frustrating!

                                • Format the account drop-downs to match the order in the chart of accounts.

                                  When entering expenses and there is a drop down window to select the account to assign it to, is there a way to have the list appear the same way it does in the chart of accounts.

                                    • On/Off Option for Product/Services Image

                                      Product and Services Images
                                      Please add an option in the Settings on whether to use Images. We don't use this option and it makes the Products and Services screen unwieldy and ugly. It would be nice to be able to turn this feature off.

                                        • Allow multiple Phone number fields to appear in the customer center list.

                                          PLEASE add a 2nd phone # column in customer lists! Customers have multiple phones numbers these days and owners need to be able to see more than 1 in printed customer lists!
