      • Search by date, not date last modified

        For some reason, the ability to search for transactions by date has disappeared. Last week, I could search for deposits by the date of the deposit. Now the only date related search option is by Date Last Modified. A deposit for 8/21 may be entered on 8/21 or several days later so "date last modified" is not helpful. It seems like the search functionality has become more restrictive. Please return the old search options.

        • Make the search bar like the desktop version

          Hey Quickbooks!

          I love your application and I think your online version is amazing, especially the mobile apps!

          One of the features I noticed that is not as nice as your desktop version is the search abilities. In the desktop version for Mac, when you clicked Comman+F to look for any, you merely needed to type in the search bar whatever you had to work with (i.e. name, address, reference number, etc) and it searched the entire program for it, giving you the different areas it found it in on the left (i.e. invoices, contacts, estimates, etc).

          The new search…

          • Please remove inactive vendors from vendor search

            Please limit the vendor search to only active vendors; inactive vendors should have to be selected as a setting or filter.

              Please add the "search by date" feature back when searching for a journal entry. Why did you take this away??

                It would be very helpful to be able to do a search by address. It is a pain to have to go through each address to find or not find what I am looking for!

                • Improve the search by line/item description

                  The search feature seems limited on the line description function.
                  If you input more than one word whilst searching in the line description function unless those words are actually in the order you type them in the description it will not find anything.
                  For example we have lots of copper fittings listed and if I were to look for a "22mm copper elbow" it would return no results as the description could be listed as "copper elbow 22mm" or another variation using those 3 words. This makes the search process very lengthy as we end up having to search only…

                    • Search by customers by zip code

                      It would be very helpful to be able to search for customers by zip code.

                      We occassionally receive money orders from unidentified customers and it would be very helpful to search for the customer using the zip code listed on the money order.

                      Thanks.

                      • search invoice by PO number

                        Would be extremely helpful if we could search through invoices by PO number. This seems like a natural option since customers ask about transactions via their PO numbers.

                        • Make all fields searchable

                          Any field in a document or invoice which can be written to should already be searchable. It's not that hard to code. What are you waiting for? Please stop playing games with features.

                          • Find a ProAdvisor - please change the default mileage to 20 miles

                            Please please change the default mileage from 10 miles to 20 in the find a pro advisor site. There are many many areas of the US that require a full time pro advisor to travel up to 35 miles to go to a clients site. 10 miles default is too limiting. Many potential customers will not see the option to expand the mileage and will never get to find the perfect advisor for them. It is very important to those proadvisors that have made a career of supporting all QuickBooks products and are not necessarily offering recurring accounting and bookkeeping…

                                It would be very helpful to be able to search for a business under the "ship to" address. Often times the billing address and the ship to address are different. Right now we can only search for the billing address information. It takes forever if we cannot remember the name that a job is billed under.

                                • Add Search and Replace tools for other fields in Accountant Toolbox

                                  Would love to see this integrated into the reclassify transactions tool in Accountant Toolbox. Once Quickbooks figures out how to get the transactions to line up properly with the checkboxes (no my browser isn't zoomed) and go back to the search after clicking on transaction (rather than re-setting the whole thing so you have to start over) the tool works well. If it could work like ***ever other database ever invented*** and do a global search and replace for other fields, it would be such a time saver!!!!! Also, Please allow ability to search and delete transactions.

                                    • Custom Fields Viewable/ Exportable in Advanced Search

                                      Please add the ability to view custom fields in the columns on the advanced search page. For example, I have several custom fields on our Invoices (Sales Rep. ID, Job Number, etc.) that I would really like to be able to view, and ultimately to export to an Excel file - this would make it so much easier to track the commission payments that are owed to our sales representatives related to invoices. Currently, we can only view the standard QB online columns. I'd like to see the option in the dop-down menu.

                                      It would also be very useful to…

                                        Search the banking transactions that are for review to be added.

                                        Export the banking transactions for review to be added so these could be added to a reconciliation

                                        • Here's a great idea - actually put into place some of the ideas that people submit here.

                                          I would like to be able to search on vendors without having to go back to the vendor tab every time. There are about 20 other posts with this same suggestion. Does anyone at QB look at this stuff?
