  1. Stop extremely annoying pop-ups after sign on about "multiple currencies"

    Please stop this extremely annoying pop-up whenever I sign on to QB Online. I have clicked "x", I have clicked "got it", probably 100 times each. My company and I have no interest in accepting any currencies.

    • Customize home screen with fiscal year dates

      The home screen graphs and reports need to better reflect my fiscal calendar so that the graphs and numbers means something to me since I do not operate on a calendar fiscal year.

      • Give us back the exact same interface as the desktop version, including both the schematic-diagram and the menus.

        It's impossible to find any of the controls in this awful scrambled mess.

        • Viewing Editing Bank Register

          Viewing Editing Bank Register
          This process is very tedious and clunky!
          * 1st you click on Company name/gearwheel
          * then click Chart Of Accounts
          * then click the Bank Account listed ... Account History
          * this takes you to Bank Register (the name has suddenly changed from Account History to Bank Register!)
          * This does not display all entries but you are not advised of this anywhere!
          * once you have realised this to access earlier entries you must click Go To Date
          * you can then edit an earlier entry ... when finished it reverts back to the 1st…

          • Quit changing things

            Quit changing the screens and cosmetics.
            This isn't a magazine or fashion merchandising. Its accounting!
            We want repetitious simplicity. We don't want to have to retrain ourselves and our staff every time someone in engineering or design wants to make a screen pretty.
            I want my people to be able to do the same thing over and over again - with their eyes closed if they had to.
            If you design fashion wear, you change things up regularly so people don't get bored.
            You want to keep your QBooks customers, you keep things the same.
            Don't try to reinvent the…

                • make online navigation like desktop

                  Make navigating in the online QB just like the desktop - entry takes so much longer in the online version.

                  • Limit Access to Employee information for Employees with Customers Access Only.

                    An employee that has custom access to only customers and sales should not be able to have access to employee timesheets and employee information like name, address, SSN, date of birth, hire date, etc. and have the ability to edit this information.

                      • Additional accounts listed with Bank Accounts

                        it would be wonderful to see "Undeposited Funds" and "Credit card receivables" on the home page bank account list, or have the ability to show this accounts or not.

                        • Different way to graph Expenses on the Dashboard

                          I would like to be able to select the type of Graph displayed on the Expense box on the Dashboard. I would like to be able to switch from a pie graph, to a line graph so I can see trends over time, same as what is shown on the Sales box on the Dashboard.

                            • Show/Hide Bank Accounts

                              The "Bank Accounts" section on the right-hand side of the home page, if it has more than a few accounts, pushes the "Needs Attention" section down below the bottom of the screen, and then one has to scroll to find out what needs attention. Is there a way to HIDE the least-often used accounts?

                                Make the task item optional. QB isn't the only way to perform some tasks. Now it looks like we didn't pay our taxes and we did.

                                  After I Take Action for open items under ACTIVITIES and NEEDS ATTENTION How do I make the TAKE ACTION item go away? In the previous versions of QBO I could check the ITEM and it would go away. I don't see that option in the new QBO.

                                      • Display cash method on Dashboard for cash method companies

                                        I'm new to QBO Accountant. The dashboard displays only accrual basis data and will not display the summary using the cash basis even though the company settings are set to cash basis. My prior account with QBO the dashboard did display the data using cash basis and was very helpful. Please update this for QBO accountant as well.

                                        • Financial year

                                          Use financial year on front page not calendar year. It is after all an accounts package.
