  1. Disable Hint Window

    Please made an addition to settings/preferences to disable the hint windows. Many times they block what I'm trying to see, click on. After using the product for over a year, I'm pretty sure most users will know what each function is. We certainly don't need reminders for reports or recognized items to match.

    • Adapt Income and Sales dashboard modules to show insights for all revenue models, not just invoice-based

      Problem: Income and Sales dashboard modules show no information for businesses that do not record sales using invoices, leaving dead space where otherwise useful material could exist.

      Solution: Adapt current Income and Sales dashboard modules or create customizable options to display useful insights for businesses that do not use invoices, such as sales line graph, and income broken down by revenue account.

        • Hide bank account information on Homepage

          Would like to be able to hide the bank info because it is confusing to the owners because we are not connected to the banks online and the balances are never correct.

              • customize home page

                Allow customization of the home screen to bring forward what a user uses most (ie) I do not process payroll, clients, or employees through QB we have a software application specific to our industry that we use for that. I reconcile chking accts and crd card accts, post bills, pay vendors and that is all. Customization would reduce the number of steps I need to take to get to what I actually use. Thanks.

                • Customizeable home page

                  I have found the new interface pretty much unrelated to how I run my business. The older version was more relevant. If I could there is nothing on the home page I use or want, nor does it make sense since I cannot put dates on the Income or Expenses items. Your 365 days and 30 days defaults do not mean anything to me. The list on the right side of the screen starting with banking and going down through activities is irrelevant as well. It is just stuff in the way I do not use. I am a small…

                    • Remove tasks on homepage

                      Way to switch of Tasks or only show the ones you want on Home page. Most of it is irrelevant to running the business.

                      I've just spent ages going through and deleting reminders to print documents that were imported when I started QBO.

                      Please give us a way to hide this feature.

                      • Other languages

                        It is necessary to be able to switch languages that the software operates.

                        A localized software, will surely make the software more usable and valuable.

                        We will like to be able to switch from English to Spanish with no troubles.

                        • Bring back one-click link to Customers and Vendors

                          My idea is actually a request to go back to the old layout. I am really missing the one-click link to Customers and Vendors on the left side. Now, I have to click twice (and wait for pages to load, which can be slow on QBO). I have to think this is frustrating for more people -- and not just me. If it isn't possible to bring back those direct links, perhaps you could add a drop-down arrow under Sales (for Customers) and Expenses (for Vendors).

                                  • Customization Options for the All New Quickbooks Homepage.

                                    I have ran across several Business owners that do not want all their EE's to see all of the businesses financial information (income, expenses, P/L) on the homepage. We should have an option inside the user access section that would allow us to turn the homepage on and off for individual users.

                                    • Make Main Dashboard Customizable

                                      It would be useful to make the dashboard customizable. For eg. Last Paid could have the option to make that month to date instead of a sliding 30 days. We could have the option for Open Invoices to be YTD. Those are just examples, we should have options is the point.

                                        Customisable dashboard required so i can pick which blocks i want. I would like to have a blosk that shows low stock/out of stock at least but other stock info if available.
