Job Costing and Job Project Tracking
Have Job Cost or Project Cost or tracking function within Quickbooks Online.
Welcome to QuickBooks Projects! Projects help you organize all the pieces that make up a project, including transactions, time, and running reports so you always know how your project’s doing. This feature is currently only for QuickBooks Online Plus in Canada, UK, United States and Australia.
Please see this article for more information about projects:
This is just the beginning for Projects, and we’d love your feedback. You’ll see a feedback button in your project. Tell us how it’s going and what we can do to make Projects better.
I agree...although I'm sure there's thousands out there currently using the sub-client feature (like if they did contract work for both the parent company and it's subsidiaries), the only current workaround to create "projects" is through "sub-clients" like you mentioned.
Some offline versions of QB have this feature available and I think it should be added to the online version as there are many contractors and that have a low volume of clients but a high number of projects per client.
My clients request that I bill them per project so I have to use that workaround in the time being. It doesn't totally inhibit my billing process but could see it as being a good upgrade for project tracking
Is there an app that will work?
Please add this feature.
I work on many different projects for different clients. Currently the work around is to make sub-clients this doesn't make sense. I am filling in project names into the name field. When I send invoices by email it say Dear "Project Name". Seems silly what is sub-client anyway?

I believe they were called Jobs instead of Sub Customers.
Currently, the same data fields are used to enter Client and Project information even though the information that we need to track are unique to each. There needs to be a data field for entering Project info such as project numbers, contracted date, project address, etc and these fields need to be sortable and selectable on other reports and in the invoice module.
