  1. price level list

    We are a shop that has wholesale/retail price levels. The default price when editing an item is retail. To edit the wholesale price, currently I have to go to Lists -> Price Level List. I then open our custom wholesale price level, where I have to MANUALLY SCROLL through EVERY SINGLE ITEM, active or inactive, to find the item whose wholesale price I want to edit. We have thousands of inventory items. Calculating wholesale prices on a flat % rate over cost or under retail is not an option for us.

    It would be much more elegant if I had…

    • Make the inventory more robust.

      - Shelf locations for inventoried items
      - Par levels
      - Assign vendor to an item
      - Have assigned items auto-populate working PO with on hand level & par displayed so reorders are simple.
      - report on par levels and auto-populate a PO based on par.

        • Bulk Edit Delete Function

          Bulk Edit/ Mass Delete function in Product List....Selecting and deleting each individual line item is ludicrous when you have to correct over two thousand items!!!!

          • Barcode scanning

            Please work on having a barcode scanning option available! This would be a great help at tradeshows or at events when we have to make invoices quickly. If we had a compatible bar code scanner/inventory system, then we could do invoices on the spot via the QB app by just scanning instead of manually inputting it. Thanks!

              • Re-order point notification for inventory items

                it will be really helpful in inventory management to have a REORDER point feature where i get a note or reminder to order more inventory once I reach my reorder point that i set for a specific inventory item.

                    • Provide a fixed assets register with depreciation capabilities.

                      I have to keep track of our Intangible & Fixed Assets in Excel, which is getting very complex! The Amortization & Depreciation is all calculated out of the system as well.

                      I'd love to have a register with description fields to keep track of our assets within the system.

                      Thanks! ;)

                      • Part #'s UPC codes and SKU's

                        Part numbers, SKU #'s and UPC codes.
                        Come on folks, retail, manufacturing, e-commerce and millions of other businesses use part numbers for tracking inventory, ordering and sales records.
                        I've seen lots of references on suggesting this to the engineers, but I don't see where anything was done about it going back a long ways. This is a serious shortcoming to your software and one that is easily remedied by using your competitors.

                        • Track Inventory in Cash Basis

                          I know that QuickBooks Online doesn't accurately report inventory transactions in cash basis at this time. The IRS publication - https://www.irs.gov/publications/p334/ch02.html - states that small business owners have the option to use the cash method of accounting even if they produce, purchase, or sell merchandise.

                          Respectfully, I would like QuickBooks Online to support this functionality so that I can run my business in the best possible way.

                            Add the option to adjust inventory value (not just quantity) as it's currently available in desktop.
                            Beneficial to include freight-in with inventory asset value.

                            • A bundle should have its own set price that may not be the sum of its components.

                              When a customer is buying a bundle of items from me, I want to be able to offer a discounted price on the bundle. As it stands now, the bundle price is simply a sum total of all the components in the bundle. The bundle should have its own set price regardless of which components are inside it.
                              A nice feature to add to this would be a percentage discount (ie. buying this bundle gets you 10% off). This way the bundle price will change if any of the component prices change.

                                      • It would be nice to be able to list a "bundle price" instead of having to price out all of the items in the bundle.

                                        We sell a bundle that "includes" a list of items for a certain price. As it stands now, there is no way to set a "bundle" price, so the bundle function is useless. Good idea, but useless to our company. If you would let us set a bundle price, it would be a great asset to use.

                                        • Allow items to be classified as serialized or non-serialized on the item record.

                                          Advanced inventory is a good start however the ability to specify whether an item is serializable vs. non-serializable is missing.

                                          With advanced inventory turned on QuickBooks expects every item to have a serial number and will prompt you with an error every time a purchase/sales record is created without a serial number specified. This defeats the purpose of this feature as there is no strict control.

                                          With a serializable vs. non-serializable toggle on the item record the user would have the ability to specify which items should be enforced as serialized + the ability to set a level of enforcement.
