  1. Customizable Homepage Dashboard Screen

    It would be nice to have a customizable dashboard homepage where actual users get to pick what they need to see and which navigation buttons they use the most to the homepage screen. At this point, it's Intuit hard-wired homepage dashboard even on privacy mode. Many business owners saying when they're sitting next to their customers and creating transactions, they're not interested in sharing profit or loss, expenses, bank accounts, income, and sales chart.

    What they like to see the most on the homepage screen:

    1) To do list
    2) One click favorite reports
    3) One click invoicing
    4) One…

    • Fix the things that have been broken forever before implementing new things.

      Fix the "Complete Setup" problem that has been in place for over 2 years. Remove the 940 tax payment reminder that stays on the dashboard forever after you have completed the tax payment. Don't send email reminders to file tax forms that either don't apply or have already been filed and confirmed. Oh - and don't automatically change payroll tax rates in customers' accounts when they have already set everything up correctly and the information Quickbooks changes is now incorrect. All of these things make your customers think there is something they need to do and then we spend 45…

      • Ability to be able to work in the QBOA Dashboard while in a Client account

        In QBOA we should be able to have the ability to have our main QBOA Dashboard open (so we can make notes, save files, etc.) while at the same time working on a Client's file. Right now we have to open a different browser or an incognito window to work in the accountant's dashboard.

        • Sort out the log in

          Every time I log in I get a Captcha & have to enter a 3 digit code. I am using the same browser on the same PC that I have used for over 5 months & this has just started to happen. There have been no recent software updates on my end & your customer service staff can't explain it. You need to fix this issue.

          • Customized Dashboard

            Would love the ability to customize the dashboard to include more metrics. The "Sales" graph, for instance, isn't particularly useful to me...but an "income by month" graph would be useful.

            • Reduce QB notifications

              Send less QB notifications for features. There is so much of it I don't check it anymore and now I'm afraid of missing an important notification such as a security issue. Please stop

              • Can we have a box to show overdue/due soon expenses in the dashboard please?

                There is a box on the QBOL Dashboard showing invoices due and overdue for sales but not one for expenses. This would be really useful.

                  Accounts payable or "Bills to pay" 'tile' on the dashboard (same as the Invoices one) to show to bills that need to be paid.

                  • Improve Dashboard Sales Graph

                    It will also better if the sales graph in the dashboard will have a clearer instructions where it came from for us to easily analyse it.

                        • 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.

                            In the new December update, the homepage font was altered & made smaller and less bold. This font is now difficult to read even with glasses.

                            • Make Main Dashboard Customizable

                              It would be useful to make the dashboard customizable. For eg. Last Paid could have the option to make that month to date instead of a sliding 30 days. We could have the option for Open Invoices to be YTD. Those are just examples, we should have options is the point.

                                It would be great to have a note feature...some way to attach a sticky note or reminder note that will pop up when you log in. Not just for due dates, but for other reminders. Is this possible?

                                  My only complaint is that there is no Apps menu in the QBO accountant toolbar. Also, if another user subscribed to an app, I don;t have access to it as an accountant when I am the party that utilizes it the most.

                                      Allow for a private/public mode for activities for limited users on the home page. Given employees do not have access to income and expenses information when in limited mode, activities should be treated the same way.

                                        • Put the reminders list and recurring transactions list on the homepage, or on the toolbar on the left side of the screen. Thanks!

                                          Easy access to recurring transactions and reminders is crucial. This is one feature I consistently used in the desktop version of Quickbooks and would love to see it on the online platform.

                                            Thanks for submitting this suggestion!

                                            To address this feedback, we have added a Tasks list on the QuickBooks Online home page. One of the tasks that can show up in this list is for recurring transaction reminders.

                                            When there are recurring transaction reminders pending, there will be a task in the list that will link to the reminders list page.
