  1. Batch edit inactive products

    I batch edited my products to make a bunch inactive by the advice of a quickbooks expert, not a quickbooks employee however, and was told this would not affect my invoices etc, even though it does affect them and makes all the parts say "deleted" next to them. So I tried to make them all active again however there is not a "batch actions" button when looking at inactive parts, there is only batch actions for active parts. This will take me very long to put back however only took a minute to cause. There should definitely be a way…

    • We need at least 15 users to move from QB Desktop to QB Online.

      We faced issue with a limit of only 14,500 on customers/supplier and employees. There is no way around it to stay on desktop. Also we have 15 users, and only a maximum of 5 users are available on QB Online version. As no such facility is available currently. We will unfortunately be moving away from QB after a long time. Once we have moved even if such a facility is brought into the new versions. It is a very difficult task to move back to QB. I am sure you will be loosing a lot of business this way.

      • Make catagorizations stand out

        In Clients/Suppliers/Chart of Accounts/Product & Services.

        Make Groupings/Catagorizations or Parent Companies more obvious than just spacing.

        • allow user to change the default sales product or service

          Hi, I tried to make an old service as inactive. I received an error message "This product or service can't be made inactive because it is the default product or service for sales. Please add a feature to allow the user to change the default. Thanks.

            • Activate customer type in quickbooks online please!!!

              Hi!
              In QuickBooks Online for nonprofits, I just imported a donor list. I was given the option to choose a customer type, but once the import was completed, customer type did not appear in the records. I would like to be able to sort by our various categories of stakeholders (volunteer, foundation, community member, board member, etc...). Kindly, make this feature active as I hope to be able to generate reports based on this type of information. Thank you!

              • How to run a report by state? Will that be implemented?

                Searching a translation by state.

                    • Adding invoice detail on Invoice List statement

                      The invoice list (statement) is a good way to show our client what is pending and what is paid; however, the list does not show any detail in regards to what is charged to them, thus, we will have to export all the PDF along with the list. It could make my job much easier to have a invoice list that also shows what is being charged (even if it would add more pages to the statement.).

                      • Price levels needed

                        Please can you add price levels to QBO. It is so necessary and frustrating that this option is not available.

                        • "Other" type...not just product or service

                          Additional Product/Service "Types". Not everything in a business is a Product or Service. A "Misc" or "Other" Type would be helpful and in line with the desktop version.

                          • Organize Products/Services by Names AND Type

                            Organize products/services by Type AND Name. Or just simply list Names in alphabetical order when Type is selected.
                            Currently you can only organize by Type OR Name but not both. The only way to do this is by applying a filter but that's just an extra step that isn't necessary.

                            This was standard in QB Desktop and made organizing all Products and Services in one place seamless and easy.

                            • Default Sales Invoice Ordering

                              Please under "invoicing" where it shows you a list of invoices raised, can this have a default option to be ordered by most recent invoice number first?
                              The more and more clients are using it, I'm getting feedback saying it's getting frustrating ordering the invoices each time they click back into the invoicing tab.
                              they would like to see invoices shown newest invoice raised first
                              Thank you

                                • Allowing Admin users to setup Transaction Types that correlate to their books.

                                  The Transaction Types are confusing as they are listed. Users should be allowed to setup and modify their own, with the guidance from QB.

                                  • Price Rules should be easier to navigate

                                    The general format is good on Price Rules (using default prices to start), however the following changes would be useful - especially when needing to re-enter from QB Desktop (or as view options):

                                    1) Price List Items should be listed in the same order/format as they are in Products & Services - category and sub-category/items. This way, you can print a price rule list from QBD and just go down the page with changes (instead of hunting in a mixed up list).

                                    2) Allow option to "View" only those items with new rules applied - IE the items only that…

                                    • Lines on Packing Slip

                                      I use Packing Slips as a sort of Work Order form. When I receive an order via email, I enter the info as an invoice, save, then print the Packing Slip. Then I check off the items on the packing slip as I pull them from inventory or make them if I'm sold out of something. When I have a large order, it's tough to follow all of the info across the page. Can you add an option to put lines under each row? Maybe every few rows? That sure would help me, and maybe someone else!

                                        • Bulk Contact Update in Excel

                                          Hi there,

                                          Would LOVE to see functionality in QBO to export the customer list, edit details in bulk, and reimport to QBO to overide existing contact info.

                                          This feature is available in Xero and it's amazing!

                                          Thanks!
                                          Aimee
