      • Product Images in estimates and invoices

        I would like to be able to show the product image on estimates and invoices. Currently QB online has the apparently useless option of uploading a product/service image, but no way to include it anywhere. Please fix that as soon as possible. Thank you

        • Custom Domain

          Offer QBO on custom domain name. Customer would CNAME the desired name to a host of your choice. They could upload an SSL certificate or you could procure one on their behalf for free and automated via letsencrypt. The certificate would be associated with the TLS SNI extension, so as to not require additional IP addresses.

          So users could then have "quickbooks.mycompany.com" or whatever.

          • UTF-8

            We have many foreign customers who's names and item descriptions use characters that are not supported. We would like to be able to send them invoices with with their names & addresses written correctly and also any text written correctly. UTF-8

                  • Download local backup

                    Download local backup copies (from QB online): Currently, this is only possible for users who have a Windows PC and with a QB desktop. For our peace of mind we would like to save backups locally, every week. I request the addition of this feature. Thank you.

                      • pop ups

                        Have the option to turn OFF pop-up tips...it gets annoying when there are tips popping up when you go into new windows, when you already know what to do. This used to be under Preferences in the old Quickbooks/Reckon software.

                        The new dashboard also has steps that need to be followed to complete setting up the file eg. setting up GST, send your first invoice, set up payments - these steps aren't relevant to some QBO files but you can't get rid of it from your dashboard?

                        • Hide income figures from limited users

                          Remove income figures from the home screen of limited users. Add a separate option allowing administrators to grant access to this information on a user by user basis. Secretaries and other employees who only enter invoices should not have access to income figures as they currently do.

                                • Zendesk Intigration

                                  It would be great to see QuickBooks Online on Zendesk's third-party apps page instead of just Freshbooks. I would love to have the ability to automatically link a Solved ticket to my client in QBO and create an invoice from that ticket automatically. Additionally, give us the choice to queue up the invoice for later edit, essentially making it a draft, or simply save it out. Let's use this thing called the Internet to the fullest. :)

                                    As a healthcare professional I work with a company called MINDBODY ONLINE, they are outstanding in all arenas. Customer service, user friendly applications, etc. HOWEVER, there is one flaw....they do NOT have a means to manage or track expenses! ONLY sales.This is a concern with their company program that they also recognize.
                                    Working with Mindbody has allowed my clients to make appointments with me online, purchase product, and services. It has allowed me track client notes, my sales, product inventory etc.
