  1. Introduce Progress Invoicing

    Be able to bill out fractions or amounts of a Job or Project to an Invoice.

    While we are looking at this feature, workarounds currently include:

    1. You can use the Balance Forward Statement to show the original invoice, any payments made, and the remaining balance. The steps are given in knowledgebase article:

    https://community.intuit.com/articles/1145736-all-about-statements

    2. You can create a separate invoice for each stage of the job. These invoices can be created in advance to equal the total amount of the job by using a recurring template.

    For instructions on recurring templates, see knowledgebase article: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1442437-create-a-recurring-template

    Thank you

      • It would be really great use our own email rather than donotreply@intuit.com

        It would be great to be able to send invoices/estimates from any email address, rather than the donotreply@intuit.com. Since I own my own domain name, I would prefer if my communications with my customers was through my existing business email address.

          when i have qbo send an estimate to a customer, it would be great to give my customer the option to accept, deny, or request a revision to the estimate in the web interface, then notify me when an action has taken place

          • Invoice: Add line breaks between Activity Table Rows

            I'd like to be able to have my invoice look more organized. Please consider allowing us to add spaces between the separate Products/Services. An option to add a dividing line would be nice too. This makes it much easier for the client to understand the information and shows organizational practices.
            I photoshopped and attached an example of what I'd like to be able to do.

            • Have a 'delivered' status for emailed invoices

              We need a way of knowing if the customer has actually received the email invoice, so a delivered status where it says 'sent' rather than relying on it saying it's 'Sent' or 'Viewed' as not all customers click on the invoice link if the invoice is attached as a PDF.
              Also a printed status for invoices that are only printed and not emailed.

              • Business Identities! Logo / DBA's

                PLEASE create "Identities" so it is easier to update Company Name, Logo, Email Address etc for our multiple DBA's. Currently we have to change at least 3 or 4 types of data in two different locations and upload a different logo every time we invoice from a different business. AND OF COURSE - since the invoices are online, any standing estimates or invoices are likely to show the WRONG logo / data as it pulls whatever info is active. This MUST be fixed and is a huge PITA and embarrassing for customers of one DBA to see their invoice branded…

                • Variables in Sales Form Emails

                  Allow email forms such as invoices, sales receipts, estimates, and statements to have variables in subject and body of email. (i.e. {customer name} in subject or body of email would be replaced with Customer Name; {document number} would be replaced with sales form number, etc.)

                      • Ability to turn VAT off for UK Customers

                        Hi
                        Please can you add the ability to turn off VAT within Quickbooks. In this economic climate a number of our clients have now deregistered for VAT and they need to be able to reflect this in their accounts, without always putting items to 'Out of Scope' - which is not the correct way to accounts for items. Please can you let me know if this is in the pipeline and also how long it will take to implement.

                        • Must allow customization of Purchase order form

                          Really need to be able to customize the look of Purchase orders. The current layout (especially with my email address in the top of the screen with the format "my.name@mycompany.com's company" looks absolutely TERRIBLE. Please fix this ASAP. It is a poor reflection of the professionalism I wish to present with my company and honestly a poor reflection of the professionalism I know to be true at Intuit.

                            • LOGO SIZE ON INVOICES

                              I need the ability to increase the size of my logo to be large enough to go across the top of the invoice from side to side. Right now, my logo is SO small, it almost gives no value...especially to branding.

                              PLEASE offer this option to enlarge my logo. THANKS!!!!

                              • More Form Customization

                                More customization options in forms. Not being able to format my estimates and invoices like I want them is really irritating.

                                Specifically I'd like to be able to add space horizontally between items like there was before.

                                • Make Description Column Adjustable

                                  I'm unable to change the width of the description column on my invoice because it's grayed out. I need the description section to be very large, and the quantity, rate, and amount sections small. I don't know when the layout of the invoices changed, but they look terrible and unprofessional now. Please fix this ASAP!

                                  • Emailed Invoices

                                    Many of my customers emailed invoices are going to their spam folders. I would prefer if the emailed invoice is sent as a PDF attachment in an email from my company address rather than just a link to the QB invoice viewer.

                                    • Customisable Delivery Notes

                                      Make delivery notes customisable as per sales documents. We use these for various operational processes and it would be useful to alter the layout / font sizes / grouping etc

                                      Thanks

                                      • Paid stamp issue

                                        It would be nice to be able to change the "paid" stamp on the invoices. Right now, the stamp blocks out the description of work done. It is detrimental to the customers being able to read and understand the information we are trying to give them.

                                        • Batch Printing or Sending Invoices

                                          I do invoices once a month, and invoice for all work done during that month. I don't like to send or print an invoice out until I have all the invoices for the month complete, because I often find additional items that need to be added, after I initially thought an invoice was complete. I would like to be able to batch send or print all new invoices, once I have completed all the invoices for the month. This was a very useful feature in QB Pro. Thanks for a great product.
