    • Expand Quickbooks user language settings to include Arabic.

      Please consider including this language as more Arabic companies may then utilize QuickBooks.

      • QB online needs custom fields capability for items, customers and vendors.

        I had to cancel my online subscription due to the lack thereof and go back to desktop. Patiently waiting for the custom fields or a workaround

          • Chart of accounts re-ordering

            The ability to move accounts within the Chart of Accounts for reporting purposes - like we can do in the desktop version. In other words, a non-alphabetic presentation without using account numbers to accomplish.

            • First Day of the week

              Hi, we would need an ability to set the FIRST day of the week in Company settings, so it affects all associated reports. In our case we need the week to be Mon-Sun as opposed to Sun-Sat currently

                • Need wider/adjustable account column width

                  Account field columns are NOT WIDE ENOUGH. I've tried to get mgmt to use shorter account descriptions, but they like long descriptive account names. QBOE account fields are NEVER wide enough to show the entire account label. I have to click on the account and scroll left/right to see if they used the correct account. Again, not user friendly or efficient.

                  • Favorites (bookmarks)

                    I most often access my bank account. But it takes three steps to open this account. It would be great if a user could "bookmark" their favorite (most used) registers (or vendors, customers, etc.) so that a user could access their favorites in only one step (or mouse click).

                    • download quickbook online data to quickbooks desktop via mac

                      It's ridulous that you can only download quickbooks online data via windows IE. I am a mac user don't use windows or have IE installed on my MAC. I called support and the technian spent over an hour with me trying to figure out different ways to get access to IE so we can download the file. Come on Quicken - get with it! The world isn't only Windows anymore! Make it possible to download our data on Safari or Chrome platforms!

                      • Online "versions"

                        How about, since everything is all a mess anyway, you work on making online versions similar to the desktop versions (one for non-profits, one for contractors, one for...?). I am seeing many, many postings in the forums about small businesses using QBO - especially small churches. Let's face it, bookkeeping for a non-profit is vastly different than for a contractor. I don't need invoicing, monthly statements, etc. But I sure could use more features that would be specific for donors - contribution statements (that I don't have to "create" myself) and my donors check numbers printed on their statements (a…

                        • Provide better and more transparent CS for Global Clients

                          The only way to contact customer support Global is through email. And the response time is one day. This is just unacceptable in this day and age.

                          Additionally, provide some information, clearly, that informs users that US customer service is not related to Global. That they are completely different entities and one cannot assist the other. Explain... and clearly show on your site that GLOBAL CS is only through email.

                              • Multiple windows

                                Need to be able to have multiple windows open and that they stay open with the ability to at least bounce between them or even better, be able to make them different size so you can see 2 windows at once.

                                On another post asking for this same thing, it says this option was completed Nov 2013, but I still don't find how to do this easily and efficiently.

                                  • Add Arabic language support in Unicode in all phases.

                                    Arabic language support have a high demand and it is very strange having this demand from many companies I know while QuickBook not responding or developing for future.

                                        • Inactive client list

                                          ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY there are some "inactive" clients that NEED TO BE COMPLETELY ERASED. I have duplicate info, or clients that need to be GONE and out of the inactive list.
