    • Blanket Purchase Orders

      Have a blanket order feature, where you can pre-order batches of merchandise that you later release from your vendor. i.e. I order 20k of widget A, but only release 1k of widget A at a time. So I would order 20k for my vendor to have in stock, and then reduce the blanket order by 1000 at a time until the supply is exhausted and then I could pre-order another 20k.

      • Import Product and Service items

        Allow us when importing product or service items to mark them all taxable at time of import. As of now, we have to go into each one individually after import! That is a lot of work x 225 items! And no reason for it! It can't be that hard to program.

          • Online QB Inventory tracking reports

            In desktop you can run a report called "Physical Inventory Worksheet". On the online version we are not able to run that report. We need something like an "Open Balance Purchase Order Report". We need to be able to see how much of the inventory has been used and how much is left. We need it to be vendor specific as the same product can be purchased from multiple vendors. I know it is capable of this as when an invoice is made a black box appears by the quantity and tells you how much inventory you have. The problem…

              • Product descriptions

                Product description should show in my list even if I am not reselling the item. Without the description, it makes it very difficult to manage products that I purchase. I am not going to know what the item is unless I click on it. This is basic stuff and should be added very soon.

                • Product/Service change history

                  I would like the ability to see a history of changes made (edited) to a particular product or service. Information stored in this history should be the dates of all the changes and by whom. This functionality is critical to my job process and was a capability available in the old Quickbooks.

                        • Inventory - Batch numbers

                          NEW FIELD FOR BATCH NUMBERS FOR INVENTORY
                          1. Batch numbers represents a group of items instead of an individual unit, not serial numbers or SKU.
                          2. When creating a new bill from suppliers, there should be a field/column to enter a batch number for each item under 'Item details'.
                          3. This will lead to the capability to see the items under 'products and services' with it's respective quantities and batch numbers. There can be more than one batch number and it should be able to record respective quantities for each batch number.
                          4. Hence, when creating invoices for customers, items…

                            • Automatic update of quantity and price in the Product List when items are purchased

                              The desktop version would update purchase costs automatically for each product, therefore correctly calculating COGS when an item was sold. The online version requires you to manually update the product list when the purchase price changes. With 3,000 product items this is just not feasible and therefore the COGS calculation is wrong. Please bring this automatic updating into the Online version

                                • Allow the tracking of quantities of inventoried items on hand without them being associated with the inventory account or COGS

                                  My cost of materials is pretty consistent so I estimate dollar subtractions from inventory based on gross revenue. I do a physical count of inventory quarterly and adjust accordingly. This works fine for tracking the dollar value, however, I would like to be able to use the Purchase Order function of QuickBooks to increment quantity on hand and then have quantity on hand decremented when an item appears on an invoice to my customer. I would use this solely to track quantity on hand and continue to do a periodic physical count to track dollar value of inventory. Also, It…

                                      Need to add more fields to the Products and Services Area. Ideally a few that you can customize- but would like one that I can put a lot number in and another that I can list a weight.
