Work Orders / Work Order in QuickBooks Online
Work orders would be awesome!
In many small businesses, the basic workflow is Estimate: Job Sheet : Invoice. Currently, there is no way to create a Job Sheet / Works Order, why not?

It would be nice if we were able to create a work order. As we create estimates for customers and the work is not done right away. I would like to be able to create a work order and it not include the price.

Work orders are essential for our business. It would be nice to see an easy way to have this workflow: Estimate (customer) > Work Order (technician) > PO (vendor) > Invoice (customer).
For the Work Order, it would be nice to have statuses like "Open", "Pending", and "Approved".
Work order form

Printing work orders, and customizing them to print with no prices is essential for service based companies to give to crew members. This could easily be solved by allowing the "packing slip" to be printed from the approved estimate - before having to be invoiced!

It would be very helpful to create Work Orders from Estimates. Export function or Save As feature.

Please add the ability to print work orders from estimates. Currently, we have to duplicate the estimate then delete the pricing to give to the crew for each job. The only other option is to invoice the job before it is complete and print a packing slip. Neither of these options are ideal.
Marshall Badeaux commented
It would be nice to have a print view of estimates that didn't show the price. A "Work Order" preview if you will. Very similar to you "packaging slip" view, but without the problematic issue of creating an invoice for a project prior to intended billing date.
Jennifer Kea commented
Please provide a "work order" form option. As with the "estimate" form, a work order could easily be converted into an invoice once all purchasing was completed.

We use to use QB Pro and changed the estimate template to a work order. We can than enter our customer information on the work order and fill out in the field. Then we just click on create Invoice and the information is ready for us.

Please include in QBO:

Work Order Forms.
I need to be able to give my field crew an order form that tells them what services they have to perform on different properties, along with any additional information they need. I would also like the option to remove the rates and totals for the job from the work order form, as that would enable me to use the space that the account summaries was on for more custom fields (with more room to type in, please!) where I can put that additional information and keep the work order form neat.
I guess this could be accomplished with an extra template, or maybe the option to remove account summaries from the Invoice template and add more custom fields? Or how about a completely custom form that you can add whatever fields you want? Just my two cents. Thanks.
Current work around is customizing customer contact list report. Would like Work Order feature. There's no work order feature in QBO.Thanks

A feature that I would really like would be the ability to turn an estimate into a work order. We can turn estimates into invoices, but For my purpose it would simply print an estimate without the total price showing. For subcontractor use.

It seems to me that a very basic function would be to have a "work order",

If you are targeting businesses, it would make sense to have a field on the invoices to include the work order number and include it in the transaction list so searches can be done by work order number! This is very important for businesses.
Looking for the exact same thing. Looking at other providers for Work Orders, but so far I can't find one that will take a QBO Estimate / turn it into Work Order / then send it back to QBO to invoice in QBO. Anyone?
I would love the option to generate a work order from my Quickbooks interface. I know that I can connect to work order management apps but they are way more complicated than I need, and cost more than I want to pay. I simply would like to "generate a work order" from within Quickbooks online from an estimate that I created in Quickbooks; then print/download the work order. The work order would look a lot like an estimate, but would not have any dollar amounts showing.
Quickbooks online is for contractors? Why not let us CONVERT AN ESTIMATE/PROPOSAL INTO A WORK ORDER before creating an invoice. Also would be great to take deposits on the work order that will carry over into the invoice when it's created. For contractors, invoicing typically doesn't take place until the job is partially or fully completed.
