    • Make the full QBO web app work on touch/tablet devices (iPad, Android) - NOT a scaled down version of it

      Refresh QBO's UI to get rid of out dated stuff
      Enable the full website on the iPad, not the scaled down iPhone version.

      This feature request is related to the "web app" and not a native app for QBO on such devices

        While this update is a little late, and should hopefully come as no surprise, the mobile web browsing experience mimics the desktop-browsing experience in QuickBooks Online as of February 2016.

        For more details, see:
        http://quickbooks.intuit.com/blog/quickbooks-online-release-notes-february-2016/

        Or, go to qbo.intuit.com on your browser and click “sign in” to view the mobile experience.

        Note: This is not the same as the mobile App experience, which is still being updated with support for more features.

      • Receive partial PO's

        The ability to receive a partial Purchase order and the remaining balance on the PO remains open. The only way to receive partial now is to delete the back ordered items and create a new PO

        • Allow the ability to delete any excluded transactions PERMANENTLY

          Allow the ability to delete any excluded transactions PERMANENTLY from any account. It leaves everything looking very messy.

          • Allow multiple windows. It's annoying and inefficient to only have access to 1 window at a time. Makes us want to return to desktop app.

            In desktop app, I could work in multiple windows. I could work in a register and see the effect in a report real time. The online version doesn't allow for that, as far as I can tell, and it's INCREDIBLY ANNOYING and INEFFICIENT.

            • Recurring ACH payment

              We are being told that our competitors are offering a recurring ach method, without the billing client having to enter in the bank ach information every time. Please consider making this an option, like the recurring credit card information. Thank you

              • split direct deposit payroll

                Payroll has an option to direct deposit into two accounts (checking & savings), but that causes problems in matching the bank download. Payroll creates one transaction but the bank has two. Won't match.

                  Good news to report! This is now available in QuickBooks. When creating a split direct deposit you will see two transactions now posted to the bank register that sum to the total net paycheck amount. When these two transactions clear your bank and are downloaded in the Bank Feed, QuickBooks will now suggest that you match each downloaded transaction to the corresponding split direct deposit transaction in your bank register.

                  When you do your monthly bank reconciliation it will also now be easier to reconcile the account as the two direct deposit transactions that appear on your bank statement can now be individually reconciled against the two direct deposit transactions in the bank register.

                • I need the ability to attach documents to my transactions and customers...

                  Went I invoice my clients I have to attach supporting documents. QB should have a feature that lets you attach PDF and send them with the invoice. The way I do it now is after i do the invoice I send a separate email with the PDF support docuement. Help

                  • Need for Product Grouping or Bundled items in inventory

                    Quickbooks inventory is awesome! However it is missing bundled item kits, or product groupings. Also need to be able to send invoice with (item/service) group description only - instead of detailed description setup in each item.

                    • Allow column resizing in register view

                      Allow for column resizing in when viewing a register.
                      Currently when viewing a bank account register the 'payee' column is very wide and the 'memo' column is very narrow. As a result I have a huge amount a blank space after the payee name and I cannot see most of the memo field.

                        • Add billable checkbox and customer fields to downloaded transactions (Banking) page

                          Most of our company credit card transactions are billable to our clients as reimbursable expenses, however when downloading credit card transactions from the bank, the option to check the box for billable to client, or the option to select a client to bill to isn't there. After downloading the transaction, you have to move to the credit card ledger and re-edit the transaction to select the billable check box, and then select the client.

                          Request adding the following fields on the "download transaction pages":

                          1) "billable checkbox"
                          2) "Client / Customer to bill to"

                              Gear Icon > Account and Settings
                              Expenses > Purchase Orders
                              Check the box for “Copy estimates to purchase orders”
                              Save > Done

                              Please feel free to provide any additional feedback in regards to this feature. We appreciate your time!

                              When invoices go out via email, they all have the same subject line. If invoices are cc'd to the QBO user's Gmail account, they will all be grouped together. If a customer replies with a question about the invoice it can easily be lost/buried in the group.

                              Adding a checkbox to add the invoice # to the subject line in preferences for form delivery would take an Intuit engineer about 2 minutes. It would make each email "unique" and would therefore not force it to be grouped with other emailed invoices. It would make locating customer responses to emailed invoices…

                                Why are the bank accounts on the home page in this particular order? They aren't in alphabetic order, nor account number order. I would like to be able to rearrange the bank accounts to any order I want, and ideally through drag and drop.

                                  • Combine Billable Expenses on 1 line item on an invoice

                                    We really want to be able to combine billable expenses on an invoice as 1 line item.
                                    For example: Multiple travel expenses were incurred on a project for a customer. We now want to invoice for ALL the travel expenses on an invoice, but only want to show as 1 line item on the invoice - Travel Expenses = Total amount for ALL travel incurred.

                                      Thank you for your suggestion, support, and patience. We now have the ability to combine Billable Time on Invoices!

                                      If you haven’t tried this already, all you need to do is when creating an Invoice, click on the pull down on the right side of the Invoice, and choose Group Time by Service. Then it will create one line for each Service item.

                                      Please keep telling us what you’d like to see. We love hearing from you!

                                    • fix sales tax

                                      Right now I can only track one sales tax rate. I do business in an area with different counties, each having their own rate. I would like to track multiple sales tax rates depending upon the county

                                          QBO Plus customers will now see the field Preferred Vendor/Supplier when setting up inventory items under the Purchasing Information section. Preferred vendor is also available as an additional column that can be added to the Product and Service List report.

                                          If you add a Preferred Vendor/supplier to your inventory items, and you select Reorder from the Action column for that item, the Purchase Order will automatically populate with that vendor name saving you an extra step.
