  1. Offline Version

    An offline version would be very helpful. This would allow us to access our data (at least for read only) during an outage, as well as have a local redundant copy, which many of us would feel better about having. I love the online capability, but would still like to "own" a copy of my data in house, even if it is for emergency and viewing purposes only.

    • Implement Two Factor Authorization For Account Signons

      QuickBooks contains a tremendous amount of personally identifiable data as well as employee and vendor Social Security Numbers. Protecting OBE accounts with two factor authorization should be a no-brainer.

      Two factor authorization is a standard option on Google, Facebook, LinkeIn, Dropbox, Evernote, Paypal, Yahoo, any WordPress site and many other on-line systems. It is easy to implement and there are multiple products out that that can be done for little to no per user cost.

      Any company that is serious about the security of their on-line systems should have two factor authorization as at least an option that its users…

        • Attach forms like W9 to vendor files.

          We really need to be able to attach paperwork like form W-9 to the vendor file. This same feature would be very helpful for the customer and employee files for certificates and the like. Thanks

          • Turn off help pop-ups

            Turn off the annoying reminders to tell you what you think. Once we close them once they should STAY CLOSED!!!!!! Very annoying.

            • Vendors Bills Due Reminder

              The old online version had a section in the Dashboard that will tell you, Overdue Bills, Bills need to Print, Bills need to Send and Bills to Pay. I don't see anything on Bills to pay. I had missed some Bills that I have to pay to Vendors because I don't see anywhere on the dashboard that tells me that I owe and when is the due date.

                • Auto Save

                  Quickbooks should auto save similar to Gmail. I cant tell you how many times I have started a very long proposal and was pulled away for some reason. When I come back, it logged me out and didnt bring me back to where I left off. Yes, I should have hit save but at the time of being pulled away, I didnt expect to be as long. Auto saving would certainly help.

                    • fix the time zone issue

                      I want to be able to have the ability to select the correct time zone under our Company Settings. We are not in the pacific time zone and I will not feel comfortable using the email function for anything unless I know that our timezone is set correctly.

                      • provide Oculus support for future versions of Quickbooks Online.

                        The current monitor requisite interface is cumbersome. There are clearly productivity gains to be had by providing support for newer and more immersive ways to provide bookkeeping and accounting services.

                        • Integration of shipping manager with QB online

                          Please add shipping integration with FedEx. The desktop version of QB has the FedEx integration.

                          It is very time consuming to re-enter the data to FedEx.com each time.

                          • Make self-employed features like tax estimates available in QBO

                            I think there are too many different variations of Quickbooks that don't interact with each other, making people whose business might overlap in a few key areas unable to just pick one. I happen to work for myself as an independent consultant and some of the things I need are invoicing, expense tracking, cutting checks, running P&L reports, tax estimates and filing, and many more. All these things are available across many Quickbooks features, but not just one.

                            I think it's very frustrating to users and counter-intuitive to have separate products when you could be focusing on a solid QBO…

                              Stop calling them deleted and call them inactive. It scares people who do not understand that they are not truly deleted.

                                • Please Give Us Back The Good Quickbooks!

                                  The bars, graphs, big numbers and pastel colors are not a good thing on your new product. Of course we can work this system. It is taking twice as long to get what we need out of it. You flash all of our company info all over each of the new and improved product. Are you going to at least let us customize our pages? We now have to double click, and double click and double click to get things that used to be a click from the home page and in.

                                    right now I can only make team members inactive. however, the ability to delete would be better.

                                    • Importing Transactions Should Be Built-in, Not an Add-On

                                      I've never agreed with the logic that you allowed an external 3rd party developer to build your import from XLS/TSV/CSV and have it be paid for. This service is a very basic level of service from a SaaS or Desktop program. Either buy their application and merge it or develop your own and put it in play.

                                      • Allow for the ability to change the next scheduled date on a scheduled recurring transaction

                                        Currently if you have scheduled recurring transactions (templates), there is no way of changing the NEXT scheduled DATE. The QBO system sets the date automatically based on the way you set up the schedule. But here's a problem. I have 300+ scheduled transactions (templates) that generate an Invoice once-a-month for a set of customers with a fixed recurring monthly billing. After the monthly invoices are generated the QBO system automatically adjusts the NEXT DATE to the next month (assuming a monthly schedule here). But several random customers pay in advance at random times. Here's just one example: a client is…

                                        • search notes and memos

                                          The search function needs to search all fields i.e memos, notes etc.
