A simple check box to mark expenses as billable in the mobile app

Right now when creating expenses in the mobile app (iOS and Android), you can attach an expense to a customer, but you cannot mark the expense as billable. This means that to add billable expenses to invoices, I must go through the desktop to mark all the expenses I created in my phone as billable. I can't imagine the reason for attaching an expense to a customer without also allowing the option of making it a billable expense (the only other use I see in it relates job costing which is another feature QBO lacks).

I must say that I really enjoy using the QBO platform and I think you're doing a good job in constantly improving it. However, this one annoying little oversight that is making me lose money in lost billable expenses. All I need is a simple check box on the mobile expense creation forms and I will be immensely satisfied.

        Me too - it seems madness you can assign it to a customer but not mark it as billable in the app which is surely the whole point of putting expenses in on the road on an app! really really hope this gets fixed soon!

        This is the most incredibly stupid oversight I have ever encountered in commercially produced software. This isn't even a "feature" request. This is simple *duh*. The other anonymous commenter is right. This would take a dev guy no more than a few hours, and that's on a Monday morning with a five alarm hangover. Seriously, this is unacceptable. I have to go through all my expenses twice to make sure I don't miss something, and then the damned thing freezes up. It's taken me 20 minutes to check about 30 items. Wow. Total waste of time.

        Couldn't agree more. This is a hugely frustrating omission from the QBO app and actually creates more work due to the need to run a report of expenses marked billable for each client (which in itself is so much harder than it should be) and then manually mark each one billable (no batch function here either).

        I work in software and I know from first hand experience on a similar function for one of my customers that this is such a simple addition that will take one of the dev guys no more than a couple of hours to implement and test and it would take a massive pain in the ass manual process out of what should be a quick and simple job.
