    • Make the security code that must be emailed to you optional

      The new security feature where a code must be emailed every time you login should absolutely be optional. I work from different IPs at multiple times a day. Every time I access one of the 20 QBO client files I have, I need a new code.

      This is time consuming!

      • Please let Users Disable those pesky Tips popups!

        Need to allow users to disable all "Tips" popup boxes. These are continually getting in the way of experienced users.

        • Screen color options

          Please change screen colors for more contrast. Providing a couple of options with darker/brighter colors would be great. Thanks!

          • Enable Projects feature for international accounts

            I don understand why the Project features is only enabled for certain countries, it doesn't make sense. This is the main reason why I wanted to use quickbooks, for my subcontratctor company. But without this feature there is no point.

              • Automatic expiration date for estimates

                Automatic expiration date added to estimates. Have a field in settings so that we can adjust the length of time an estimate can stay valid for. 30, 60 or 90 days!

                • Allow a non-profit to use "invoice" instead of "pledge"

                  Non-profits are set to use "pledge" instead of "invoice". While this can be changed on the Invoice Template, it needs to be changeable everywhere. Many non-profits do not use "pledge" and it becomes confusing for our members.

                  PLEASE give us the option to globally change the word "pledge" to the word "invoice".

                  • Two Factor Authentication

                    Please add support for two factor authentication. This has become the standard for business and banking on other major cloud based apps. Prefer Google Authenticator, but SMS would be fine as well.

                    Thanks!

                          • Allow display fonts and highlighted cell color changes by user in Quickbooks Pro 2013.

                            The font used is pale and hard to read. The use of Arial or Arial Black would make it much more readable. The highlighted box is bright green and the letters change to white which is even harder to read. Also the reconciliation screen does not have any lines to distinguish the entries and looks childish. Before rolling out a new version you should allow the users to tell you what the screens are like to use or at least have the programmers use QuickBooks for an extended period of time to see what the real world is like.

                              • Printer selection

                                I use a different printers depending on what I'm printing, or sometimes different trays.
                                There needs be be a printer setup dialog on every print job so that we can choose.
                                It's stupid and time consuming to have to exit to windows and change the default and settings all the time.

                                  • Bug reports/fixes

                                    Can you guys @ Intuit please give us an exclusive forum on reported bugs which give us an indication of what bugs have been recognised, what stage of fixing they're at or a work around for them.
                                    I have been reporting bugs for months which to me (a programmer myself) would appear to be a really simple fix but absolutely NOTHING has been done about them, you concentrate more on attracting new customers when you should be more concerned with losing your loyal existing ones. These bugs are causing lots of extra unnecessary work along with incorrect information!

                                      • "Non-Posting" option for nominal header accounts

                                        The Chart of Accounts allows sub-accounts and I always add a sub-account called "Other" if I feel it is required. For some years, I have hoped that a "Non-Posting" button option would be allowed for header accounts to force the correct selection of a sub-account. Perhaps it wasn't on the desktop versions because I never asked! Please add this option.

                                        • First/Previous/Next/Last

                                          Have the "First-Previous / Next-Last" page navigation controls on the top as well.
