  1. Financial year

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

    • Now unable to restrict employee access to private information

      Limit all employees being able to see company income! The new version allows all employees, even those with restricted access, to see proprietary company information such as income. It's causing SERIOUS issues. If I--as administrator--restrict an employee's access, they should NOT be able to see anything re: income and expenses when they sign on. Not only do they see it, but it's in big print with corresponding color charts. Seriously?

      • Undeposited Funds on Home Page

        I would like a spot on the home screen to see undeposited funds. This way, you could see your bank balance, quickbook balance, open invoices, and any money being processed.

        • Please give us a way to remove/delete needs attention items on home page. Many people have requested this.

          The "needs attention"/"activity" section needs to have a way to delete items that are incorrect.

          • Allow income views on Home page that are not invoice-centric.

            The current home page is invoice-centric...that is, it assumes the way you do business is via invoices. I primarily use sales receipts (e-commerce business), so having "Open", "Overdue", and "Paid" invoices isn't helpful for me—it ends up just cluttering up my understanding of income.

            I'd like to see additional UI support for viewpoints/reports that aren't invoice-centric for those of us who do business without invoices.

            • Delete Stored Credit Card Info/ Edit Attention List

              On the Home Page, in the Needs Attention section, there are alerts for customer credit card expirations and tells you to get updated info. We have customers that appear on that list who are no longer using credit cards and are paying either via ACH or Check. If you have a customer that pays by credit card and switches to a payment than a credit card, QBO does not delete the credit card information. If the payment type screen is set to credit card and you try to go to the back screen to remove the credit card data, it…

              • Retaining Tabs after closing the application

                Tabs are a great feature, but still missing additional controls. The tabs disappear after closing the application in OSX running QBO. If in preferences retaining tabs or not retaining tabs after closure of the application would be added it would be great.

                  • TOO SLOW!!

                    So slow, constantly waiting for info to load. Having to use more key strokes and mouse more. "Auto Select" does not work well either. Have been using Quickbooks online for 7yrs this is the most inconvenient format.

                      • Customize Home Page

                        Customization of home page. There is a default for the date/time shown on the expenses and p/l module on the home page. would be ideal if we could set these to specific date ranges we want to see on our home page. For example month to date or year to date instead of past 30 days.

                        • User Defined Color Scheme

                          I have three accounts using QuickBook Online. Currently, the background color scheme is the same for all companies and can't be changed. It will be great if I can set up different color scheme for the different companies I use to avoid confusion and mistakes.

                            • Navigate to open windows

                              Have a tab to be able to navigate to "open" windows like the desktop version. I often need to go quickly between accounts, reports and transactions and currently I have to close and go back. Very inconvenient.

                              • Company name label

                                On the new layout, which I am getting used to, there are some pages when the company name in top right corner is not shown. If dealing constantly with 3 or more files, this is distracting. The original format always had the company name visible for instant switching.

                                      • Hide Income/Cash on Homepage for Limited Access Users

                                        For limited access users...specifically customers/sales only access...include the option to hide the income summary on the homepage. We are not comfortable showcasing so prominently the amount of cash collected to our employees who are provided limited access to our books.

                                        • Add a free form note box to the home page

                                          There are other feature requests for reminders and to-do lists be added back to the home page. I think a better idea would be a free form text box that shows on the home page for all users. A place to track things to do in the next few days or reminders to do something the next time we are in QBO.

                                          Even better would be a simple CMS style entry box to easily allow for HTML elements. Bullets, tables, images, etc.
