  1. Go Back!

    Please tell me how to open the Vendor Accounts to pay my bills. If you click on "Vendors", nothing happens. Very Very cumbersome. Just an awful application. The old one was much faster and better. AND I could easily pay my bills Thank you very much for nothing.!!! Don't you people try this stuff out before you implement?

    • Find Vendors From Inventory Item

      In QB Desktop, we could run the Physical Inventory Worksheet, then click on an item name to discover which vendor(s) the item was purchased from. The Online version of QB also has a Physical Inventory report, but it lacks this built-in feature.

      Having a quick way to find which vendor sold an item to us is a huge time-saver for our day-to-day operations. We really miss it in QB Online and request that it be added!

      • Fix QuickBooks Online Feature Requests Pagination

        On this QuickBooks Online Feature Requests page, the pagination at the bottom (Previous, page number, and Next links) doesn't work properly. Click on any of them, and the new page starts to build, but a second later it reverts to showing the Page 1 results instead. This happens no matter which link you click.

        • Mass unreconcile manually reconciled items (remove "R")

          Accountant Version - quick way to mass update the reconcilation status of transactions! When I get books where transactions have been marked manually, it is nearly impossible to get it fixed quickly. It's very time consuming to manually unreconcile them all!

                • Print AJE from Journal Entry screen

                  I wish there more print options on some of the screens. Currently, I am working in the Journal Entry screen and cannot print out the AJE for reference. I have to take a screen shot and print that. There are other screens I have had this issue with as well.

                      • An option to get rid of the "getting started" check list in a new QBO dashboard.

                        The one that says "Connect to an accountant", "Start invoicing" and "Pay employees".

                        I am setting up a company who does not have employees, will not pay sales tax and will not get QB payments. However, I don't want him clicking in these items thinking that he does.

                        We are a ProAdvisor firm with 75 clients in QBO.

                        • Simplified VAT entry on Bills

                          VAT Rate on Bill Entry - can you not simplify this so that we just need to input the rate code rather than input it, then chose from a drop-down list (which, if you miss this, records nothing!). It is so time consuming.

                            Please bring back the Customer and Vendor tabs. This was so much easier & quicker than going through another tab to get to these.

                            • Multiple A/R accounts

                              I just realized that QBO does not allow multiple Accounts Receivable accounts. Or, rather, it allows them, but it does not allow you choose from multiple A/R accounts in any transaction interface (ie: choose which A/R account an invoice is linked to). Using specific A/R accounts to track specific kinds of receivables is a fundamental piece of business information for many of my clients. Please add that feature to QBO! It's available in even the most rudimentary desktop version. Thanks.

                                • Time by Name Report

                                  It would be great if there was a simple Time by Name Report where you could customize the columns to be by week, day, etc. In QB Desktop, you can do this by going to the "Time by Name" Report under Jobs, Time, and Mileage. Then, you can display columns by Total Only, Day, Week, Month, etc. This is very helpful when doing a quick review of Employee/Vendor hours. Please do this!!!!! Thank you!!!!!

                                    OBO only has one salary and there does not appear to a way to directly post an employees salary to the department they work in.

                                      • Bring back the ability to print/export VAT detail and exception reports on past 'filed' returns

                                        On the new release there is no longer an option to print or export past VAT exception and detail reports. I am able to view them but annoyingly cannot print them. This is a problem as I have previously relied on this feature and now cannot print the info I need

                                        • Make it clear special characters create a problem when importing data.

                                          We need a support article, or narrative in the program, that makes it very clear that special characters such as commas in the CSV data will create errors when importing customer lists into QBO. Clients new to QBO tend to use this feature, they get very frustrated when they cant get an import to work. it may be one of the first things they do in the product and such a negative start is not good for long term relationships!
