  1. 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.

        • Dashboard Report Default Settings

          Dashboard that can be adjusted to show accrual basis reporting without having to open each report and change the settings. Some companies use inventory and the dashboard reports are not accurate because they show cash reporting. Please vote to have this feature added. Much appreciated

          • "What's new feature" necessary!

            "What's new feature" necessary!
            I have different clients in QBO that show different screens for sale tax (see attached) because they are on different servers. One has a newer update of QBO than the other.
            This is VERY CONFUSING!!!
            I was trying to train a new employee on QBO and the sale tax was different on 2 client files which drove us nuts trying to figure out what we did wrong to make them different. If QBO could include on the dashboard the version of QBO that the file is in, it would help a lot. Also QB desktop had…

            • Chat Function for Users

              I would suggest adding a chat function that allows users to chat with other online or maybe even offline users. If this already exists in this current style of Quickbooks I suggest making it MUCH easier to find.

              • Dashboard needs to reflect journal entries

                It would be nice if the dashboard reflected journal entries. It is pretty much useless to us because it doesn't. Kind of a bummer.

                • Notes Section in QBO

                  In QBO, I think it would be great and beneficial to add some sort of area where accountants/users could post notes on the company's homepage of the dashboard.

                  • Upcoming bills on dashboard

                    Would like to see a notes section for each customer invoice. When chasing outstanding customer invoices, I can note - "Called Mr Bloggs on xx/xx/xx at xx.xxpm. Items discussed etc. Said he would pay next week". Currently I have to switch to a spreadsheet. Would like all data in one place, much more user friendly.

                    • QBO App - Please remove "Net Profit" from displaying on Home/Dashboard.

                      Quite often clients will watch (out of interest) when I create their invoice. Rather than them see personal financial information, I'd rather have a simple menu for commonly-used functions such as "Create an Invoice", or "Add a Customer" or "Add a Payment" or "Send a Reminder".

                      • Making Tabs Permanent

                        i would like to see that tabs at the top of app would be able to be made permanent. I have several tabs that I open everytime I use the QB app and allowing the end user to designate tabs to reopen after a close of the app would be a great benefit to the app. Thanks.

                          • Net Cash Increase Tile

                            It would be helpful to have a tile on the dashboard showing the increase or decrease in cash (bank accounts) - like a mini statement of cash flows - but just the net cash increase or decrease.

                                  It would be very helpful if I could add a list of reminders to help me remember when things are due. Maybe a calendar that I can have control of to add and take items off or mark them as complete.

                                  • Retaining Tabs after closing the application

                                    Tabs are a great feature, but still missing additional controls. The tabs disappear after closing the application in OSX running QBO. If in preferences retaining tabs or not retaining tabs after closure of the application would be added it would be great.

                                    • On the bashboard, One of the thumbnails is 'Sales'. It would be very, V

                                      In the dashboard, it would be ver, VERY helpful to some flexibility for adding other thumbnails or changing the measured matrix from 'Sales' to Commission Income, for example. There are other variable that could (and should) be easility measured as a quick reference here.

                                      • Allow the removal of accounts on the Home "Dashboard"

                                        I'd like the ability to customize the "Dashboard," so that old and/or deleted accounts aren't showing. Right now we can customize the order/sequence of the accounts that are appearing, but I'd like to be able to remove accounts that are no longer used. It clutters up the Dashboard and makes things confusing not only for my clients, but my employees working the accounts.

                                        • Can't login to QB Online outside US

                                          An error I get:

                                          This page isn’t working
                                          c27.qbo.intuit.com didn’t send any data.
                                          ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

                                          This happens in every browser/device I try to use to login.

                                          The problem disappears after I use VPN (right now I'm in Europe with my client in US)

                                          This became an issue only this month.

                                          HELP!
