        • Tasks/Notes/Reminders Function on Homepage

          A notes section or a tasks list please for the overall site - maybe on the left bar side under Apps.

          Not to be confused with the notes section in invoices, payments, credits, bills, etc. This is a general notes/Tasks list for ToDo items or Reminders in QB.

          • Calendar Reminder Alerts

            I would like feature to use a calendar to set alerts to display on home page that certain tasks need to be completed. Example sales tax due on the 20th of each month. I would like to set an alert for this to pop up on the home page a few days prior to remind me to complete this.

            • Create the ability to edit Quick Links on the main page.

              I would like to be able to change the options in the quick links box to the features I use most frequently.

              • Filter Dash board charts by "Financial Year"

                At the Home Page Dashboard, it is good to include an option to see the Income, Expenses, Profit & Loss filtered by Financial Year.

                In India, financial year is from April to May. So for us that will be more relevant than seeing it based on Calendar year

                Thanks in advance

                  • Manually Add/Remove accounts to dashboard quick view.

                    Allow adding any account to the quick view on the dashboard / home page without connecting to bank account online. I'd like to view my Undeposited Funds account for example.

                    Similarly, I'd like to remove an account from the quick view. Currently can only re-order.

                    • Customize Home Screen

                      Allow me to choose what information I want on the home screen - give me boxes of info to choose from so I can see the info I need. The current income/expense boxes are of no use to me, and I miss the layout of old Quickbooks. Since other people like this new layout, easiest thing to do is to give us options/choices to customize our own screens. I have another online program that does this and it's VERY useful.

                      • Home Screen Task list

                        I file my PA W3 and PA UC via the state's on-line system. I also pay PA UC using the state system. Therefore, QBO has no way of "knowing" that these were filed/paid, and therefore they show as "overdue" under my Home screen "Tasks". This is really annoying to me and make me feel paranoid even though I KNOW they were filed and paid. Please come up with a way to have an option to "delete" this, or indicate that they were filed/paid using the state system so they are not showing "86 days overdue"!

                        • Setup

                          PLEASE find a way to remove the "setup" guide at the top of the screen on QBO. As a ProAdvisor and accountant, we set up the QBO for our clients, but yet we can't get rid of this setup. It makes us look incompetent and unprofessional. We have fully set up our clients to their needs, but yet the first thing the client sees when logging in is a "setup" screen indicating its not done or not done correctly. VERY irritating!

                          • Bring the To Do List back ASAP!

                            We need the To-Do list back asap. This list notified if a recurring payment couldn't process due to an expired card, and this is vital to a lot of businesses.

                              Dashboard changed today - this is a horrible update. Please have your techs change it back - Customers Tab should be easy access!! This is the reason we use Quickbooks - it shouldn't be buried under the Sales tab.

                              • High contrast text

                                Hi, I have just started to use online. Can you allow people to change the colour on the text. I find the grey, particularly on my laptop, hard to read. The contrast in some parts is very low and when I'm trying to look quickly it makes it hard and slows me down. Or even just have a high contrast version.

                                Thanks,

                                Stephen

                                • Changing Financial Year Date on Home Page

                                  To be able to adjust the Home page financial year date so it reflects your Company financial year, rather than the 12 month Jan to Dec.
                                  This would allow a clearer snap shot of individual business

                                  • Change your name to Game It, you are certainly not Intuit!

                                    My idea is to go back to a normal professional looking work format. Not this gamer type screen. Get the big numbers and the stupid graph off the main page. Intuit, you are not certainly not that. You should change your name to Game it!

                                      • RESTORE THE SHORTCUT TAB **AND** HOMEPAGE CONTENT OPTION

                                        Would you kindly BRING BACK THE SHORTCUT TAB **AND** HOMEPAGE CONTENT OPTION? Please!!!! (What possible reason could you have for eliminating this extremely useful option?)

                                        • User managment more detailed let business owner select what want each employee has access. Financials only option to owner/who they select

                                          User managment more detailed let business owner select what they want each employee to have access to. Financials to be only option to owner or who they select - I have an employee who I would like to have do PO's and receive to invoice but if I give that option to him he can see my checking accounts. To much information - this option is on the desktop version and it meeds to be here.
