  1. Cryptocurrency Integration with Request Network

    Over the past 12 months we've received lots of requests to accept cryptocurrencies as a payment method for our products. Unfortunately we haven't found a solution that works well for us and stopped using all of them within a week or so. The tools we found are mostly limited to Bitcoin and the requests were for various currencies/tokens. (BCH, ETH, XRP, LTC, XLM and a few more. Only accepting BTC wasn't worth while the hassle of integrating.

    Recently we discovered a project (thanks to a customer) called Request Network that aims to accept payment of various coins/tokens and enables the…

          • Automated Sales Tax CASH BASIS REPORTING

            Currently, Automated Sales Tax in QuickBooks Online only calculates based on Accrual method, regardless of company accounting preferences setting. If you are new to QuickBooks Online and:

            You set your accounting method to Cash AFTER setting up the Sales Tax Center, QuickBooks will still automatically calculate your sales tax but your Sales Tax Center will still display based on accrual method. As a workaround, you can use Sales Tax Liability reports to determine the proper Sales Tax payments recorded in QuickBooks Online.
            You set your accounting method to Cash BEFORE setting up your Sales Tax Center, you will be defaulted…

            • Match payments on invoice #

              I am using Quickbooks Payments, our customers are paying invoices online, everything is through QuickBooks, no 3rd party. When the invoice payment comes in thru my bank I can't tell what customer it is for never mind what invoice. I'm told QuickBooks matches these payments based on CONTACT names (Not Company) and payment amount, even though the invoice # is available IT IS NOT USED.

              FYI We invoice everyone on the 1st of each month and most people pay the same amount so I can't sort on that. We only have company names and don't store the names of the…

              • IP Restriction

                A Chara,
                Having a cloud version is a great addition to your product offering, the coud have many advantages including but not limited to

                a) remote access
                b) no need to upgrade, constantly on latest version
                c) removing/reducing need for user to backup.

                However, while I am aware of the user restricitons / rights that can be set, I am looking for an extra security feature which does not currently exist to the best of my knowledge.

                This security feature could be added and left disabled unless a user decides to activate it so it causes no problems to anyone…

                • Automated Sales Tax Calculation - option to override sales tax RATE

                  What do you really do when QBO is not up-to-date and not auto-calculating the sales tax amount correctly?

                  QBO users should have the option to override sales tax RATE when the calculation is simply wrong. Currently, it's auto-calculated by QBO, you can override the sales tax amount one-time on Sales form but not sales tax rate and also be able to make it a permanent rate change if needed.

                  Also, how about the new direct hotline, just to take care of automated sales tax crisis? That would be very helpful.

                  • ARABIC Language for QuickBooks **DESKTOP** Edition

                    *****************************************************
                    ARABIC Language for QuickBooks DESKTOP
                    *****************************************************

                    1. We need to use the ARABIC language in QuickBooks DESKTOP EDITIONS.
                    a. Enter COA, Customers, Vendors, Items in ARABIC
                    b. Print invoices, and other forms in ARABIC.
                    c. Reporting in ARABIC.

                    2. Noting that QuickBooks DESKTOP 2012 and earlier was totally supporting ARABIC language. But it stopped after then!!! and we don't know why!!!

                    Please fix this for Middle East Region.

                    • Change Back Invoice Save and Send Feature to Allow Printing

                      New invoice style does not allow me to print when I hit Save & Send. I now have to hit Print & Preview, open a new PDF, hit print, close it then hit Save & Send, and then Send & Close to send the invoice.

                      I send out many invoices each day and this has added a good deal of time. I am never a fan of removing commonly used features that creates more steps, however this is the second time I've recently experienced this with QuickBooks.

                      • Add Litecoin as a currency

                        It's good that QBO has already listed Bitcoin (BTC) as a currency.

                        Hope you guys can add another cryptocurrency named Litecoin (https://litecoin.org). Litecoin is a well established cryptocurrency similar to Bitcoin released in 2011, only two years after Bitcoin.

                        Or even better, let users add new currency symbols themselves because there are many other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Litecoin.

                        • Can a location be assigned to a customer? Is there a way to view all your invoices and easily assign location to all of them in one grid?

                          I used the location field to add Sales Associate to each of my invoices but it seems really lame on how it works in QuickBooks.

                          I believe it will be a lot better to actually assign Sales Associate to each customer instead of each invoice.

                          My Suggestions are the following:

                          1) Can I view all my customers in a grid and simply click on a drop-down and assign a location to each?

                          2) Can I assign a location to a customer and each time a invoice is created it will automatically assign that location to any invoice added to that…

                                  It would be nice to have a customizable dashboard homepage where actual users get to pick what they need to see and which navigation buttons they use the most to the homepage screen. At this point, it's Intuit hard-wired homepage dashboard even on privacy mode. Many business owners saying when they're sitting next to their customers and creating transactions, they're not interested in sharing profit or loss, expenses, bank accounts, income, and sales chart.

                                  What they like to see the most on the homepage screen:

                                  1) To do list

                                    • Costa Rica Electronic Invoicing

                                      We are located in Costa Rica - Due to a law change we will need to use the electronic invoicing as a legal requirement and I would like to know if it is possible to include that as part of the Quickbooks features.

                                      • Dashboard - hide old accounts!

                                        It would be helpful to be able to choose which bank accounts show up on the dashboard. I do not want to delete, just to hide. We have old accounts not linked to bank accounts we don't need all of them showing on our dashboard. It is clutter and hard to navigate.

                                        • increase number of users

                                          Increase the number of users available per subscription. 3 for essentials and 5 for plus is quite low. XERO allows unlimited.
