    • Combine Billable Expenses on 1 line item on an invoice

      We really want to be able to combine billable expenses on an invoice as 1 line item.
      For example: Multiple travel expenses were incurred on a project for a customer. We now want to invoice for ALL the travel expenses on an invoice, but only want to show as 1 line item on the invoice - Travel Expenses = Total amount for ALL travel incurred.

        Thank you for your suggestion, support, and patience. We now have the ability to combine Billable Time on Invoices!

        If you haven’t tried this already, all you need to do is when creating an Invoice, click on the pull down on the right side of the Invoice, and choose Group Time by Service. Then it will create one line for each Service item.

        Please keep telling us what you’d like to see. We love hearing from you!

        • Increase Font Size on Invoices

          When printing out the invoices, the font size is terrible. It must be a size 8 or so when trying to read who the invoice is going to in addition to the line items. I love many of the features and convenience of QB online but I have had several complaints from customers that they can't read the invoice or that it's too small.
          There must be a technical code in the site for the font size on invoices. My suggestion is to go into that code and increase the size to 11 or 12. The invoices look worse that…

            The ability to receive a partial Purchase order and the remaining balance on the PO remains open. The only way to receive partial now is to delete the back ordered items and create a new PO

            • Reorder bank accounts on home page

              Why are the bank accounts on the home page in this particular order? They aren't in alphabetic order, nor account number order. I would like to be able to rearrange the bank accounts to any order I want, and ideally through drag and drop.

                • Amex Open App

                  I would like for my American Express Open card to work like my bank account. I don't want to go to the Open App to send transactions. I can't add vendors or accounts from that App. It is annoying to use the Open App. The transactions should download at the same time as I update all of my sync'd accounts.

                    • Enhance VAT Reports and Detail Reports for UK Customers

                      UK Can you please create a VAT report version that lists each VAT type transaction with the description of the transaction as entered by the user? Currently, the VAT report lists just the journal number rather than the VAT transactions within the particular journal. So right now, if you want to have the report list each VAT transaction in the detail vat report, one has to create a a journal for each vat transaction. So if I have 100 VAT transactions in a day, I have to create 100 journals. This is not efficient. I should b able to use…

                        Just updating this old thread, we do have the ability now to add in a memo/description and for it to show under the VAT detailed report.

                        Next steps:
                        Break the VAT detail report with line item transactions with memo/description and the relevant VAT boxes showing.

                      • Add billable checkbox and customer fields to downloaded transactions (Banking) page

                        Most of our company credit card transactions are billable to our clients as reimbursable expenses, however when downloading credit card transactions from the bank, the option to check the box for billable to client, or the option to select a client to bill to isn't there. After downloading the transaction, you have to move to the credit card ledger and re-edit the transaction to select the billable check box, and then select the client.

                        Request adding the following fields on the "download transaction pages":

                        1) "billable checkbox"
                        2) "Client / Customer to bill to"

                              New version of Quickbooks online is incompatible with Safari! Viewing works but Print function is an issue. Just got off the phone with tech support who recommended the suggestion be submitted. There was never an issue with previous version and SAFARI. Fix would be appreciated!

                                    When you are Paying Bills and you click on the Return to Pay Bills, you are taken back to the home screen instead back into the pay bills screen.

                                    • Training / Test Mode

                                      Give us a "Training Mode" or "test company" where no live data is touched. Having to learn or teach new hires on the live system with actual live data is dangerous and time consuming.

                                      • QB Labs thanks

                                        I really like the QB Labs feature where I can test tools like the Auto Fill and the Split View for the Client screen. Nice!!

                                        • Recurring ACH payment

                                          We are being told that our competitors are offering a recurring ach method, without the billing client having to enter in the bank ach information every time. Please consider making this an option, like the recurring credit card information. Thank you
