    • Employee daily activity in QB desktop

      I need to monitor employees daily activity with time stamp of time they log into QB desktop along with daily activity and time they logout each time throughout the day. I need to use this report as a management tool for when I'm told they are too busy. I can then produce a report that shows them that they are NOT too busy because they are logging in two hours after their start time. At this point its just denial. I can't locate such a report anywhere. Please help

      • Enable editing customer currency any time!

        Please enable the ability to edit a customer's currency AFTER the customer has been created! With companies operating online and therefore having exposure to international sales, this feature is a MUST!

        • Change the format of the covering email when sending an 'imported invoice style'

          Confusing invoice layout in emails

          When using an 'imported invoice style' why can't Intuit revert back to the simple email format that was there when I first signed up for this service, as per the image attached.

          I really can't understand why Intuit changed from this very simple, clear and easy to understand format to the awful, messy and misleading email format that is now available.

          I look forward to your response.

          Grant.

          • user specified time inactivity log out time

            It is time consuming to re-login when QBO logs you out and you are actively working in a client file...
            Is would be great if QBO would only log out for a user specified time of inactivity.

            • add a PAYE payment to HMRC due reminder on the payroll calendar

              Clients want to be reminded on the payroll task calendar that a payment to HMRC is due by 19th/22nd of the month. This feature is on Sage One and is pretty basic.

                • Save notes on the 'Project Profitability' Report

                  Hi! Ariana from your Intuit Care Support team reccomended I suggested this edit.

                  When I run the Project Profitability report for a job, there is a tab where you can add notes. However the notes don't save anywhere, so when you click off this page and then rerun the report the notes dissapear. It would be useful to be able to keep these notes, as I for example would like to record the mark up for each job.

                    • Reports by postcode

                      It would be very useful if we could run a report for sales by postcode. It is possible to run an existing report & then export & filter in Excel, but this is often too complicated for someone that doesn't have much experience in Excel.
                      Many thanks,

                              A free text box on an invoice to track debt collection notes and conversations. Ideally with a separate field with a "promise to pay" date. If the date passed, a notification is sent to the QB user.

                              • add ability for Quickbooks online to accept "percentage" of any desired field, such as "subtotal". eg 15% General Contractor Fee

                                add ability for Quickbooks online to accept "percentage" of any desired field, such as "subtotal". eg 15% General Contractor Fee. This gets added before a grand subtotal, tax, etc in the main body of charges. I would like this function to work like this: User choses income pull down, writes description, then instead of quantity, user inputs % (e.g. 15%) then -Tab- then instead of $value, the line number of the line user wants to calculate percentage of profit from (e.g. #3). If line number 12 was a subtotal of lines 1-11, user would get the value of 15% added…

                                      • Sort by Amount

                                        Please allow reports to be sorted by amount. "Amount" is currently not available in the "Sort by" drop down list shown by clicking the "Sort" option on all reports in Quickbooks online. This is absolutely ridiculous and must be some sort of oversight by the designers, as this is a standard feature of all all reports in Quickbooks Desktop. I know this issue has been posted several times before, but all postings were older than 6 months ago. I want to call attention this issue again.

                                        • Separate Contact, Billing and Shipping Info for projects

                                          Projects seem like a great solution but my projects need to have different shipping addresses than their customer. Right now I can do that with sub-customers but not Projects. It would also be nice to have separate project manager contact info and billing information.
