  1. "Customers" Button in Home screen

    Would be nice to have a Customers button in the home screen, instead of going thru Sales button and then customers. Thank you

      • enhance the vendor area to include subcontractor insurance expiration dates

        We are a general contractor and use subcontractors who carry their own Gen Liability and Work Comp insurance. The Contractor desktop version had an Additional Info tab to keep track of these expiration dates. I could add custom fields as well. We REALLY need this added to the online version. Keeping track of these dates are very important and cost us a lot of money if we allow them to expire!

              • American Express App not working fine

                The American Express Business Open application section titled as "apps you have already connected" but the application is not in fact connected, nor it allows you to disconnect it (that option is not in bold and you cannot click it).
                Thank you.

                • Add a blank column to any report, or be able to rename a column you have pre-designated as "Other"

                  Add a blank column to any report, or be able to rename a column you have pre-designated as "Other".

                  We send the Ask My Accountant report to our clients each week, requesting assistance with designating the correct account so we can get those transactions/expenses assigned correctly in QBO. So the blank column serves no purpose in QBO, but then we Export to Excel, save as PDF and email it out. But without this blank column already set, I need to go into each client excel report and create an additional blank column, name it, etc. and then save it out…

                  • Pair Recurring Sales Receipts With Invoices

                    For any recurring invoice and sales receipt, add the option to have the invoices actually paired with their associated sales receipts so they can reconcile themselves. You'll have to actually fix the whole "paid" when its not really paid issue first, though.

                    • Include a simple glossary list of [bracket] terms for email customization

                      There are terms you can use to 'customize' your invoice email message by enclosing them in brackets--example: [FullName], [First], [Invoice No.].

                      However, there is no place I can simply look at a list of what terms will accept the bracket syntax! Why is there not a simple list of accepted reference variables? This isn't even a function, more like a simple readme help list. This should take all of 5 minutes to write up.

                      It also would be extremely helpful to to be able to create custom [bracket] references as well, and to be able to put in our own…

                      • Change Inventory item status

                        Sometimes I decide not to stock an inventory item and longer and just drop ship it from the manufacturer; it would be very helpful if I could change the status of that product from "Inventory" to "Non-Inventory"
