        Multiple jobs within a customer please - the current work around by adding new customers as jobs and linking them to a parent customer is clumsy and dumb!

        I.m sure it's in QuickBooks somewhere, but looking for a report or snapshot that tell me:

        Date / Client / Inv No / Brief Description / net total / net costs / GP £ / GP %

        This will help low how much money we are making on each job and being date specific will also let me bundle and total that up in quarters / months etc...
        Snapshot attached.

        Job costing must clarify net costs for labor and materials: expected vs actual; then selling price estimated vs actual budgeted.

        Add JOB LOCATION column to many of the reports. We do many jobs for the same client and while reviewing various reports are unable to quickly ascertain which job it is. Thanks

        Please add Job End Date to customer list. This is critical to how I manage my customers. I use this to track the end of my customers subscription period.

        I don't need robust job support or quoting, as I only use the end date field to track the end of the subscription. If you had another way to track that, it would be even better.

        In the windows version, Each and every customer has exactly one job which I only use to track the subscription.

        I only have one product/service which is subscription based.

        Job Costing is a must and becoming a deal breaker for QBO. In the words of my CPA. Intuit is going to have to start developing QBO to handle these basic features or people will continue to go away from it. Employee payment should be able to be allocated to a job!

        we would like to create payroll from time sheets

        job costing reports linked to payroll. time and material jobs would be able to be reported by the job. P&L statements, etc...

      • contracting commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I did a sales detail report for 2013. NAME is included but also need to include JOB LOCATION, as I am doing an Excel job costing spreadsheet, and have to keep going to customer records to find out which job name which takes a lot of wasted time. This sales report (from REPORTS, P & L STATEMENT, double click SALES), is hard to read in that the job above and the job below all kind of blend together. At least need a blank space or dotted line between. In attached screen shot need also to add JOB LOCATION/NAME. Could shorten Estimate/Invoice column to E/I to make room. Would be nice in customer records to have a function to FIND, i.e. SEARCH for a particular invoice number or estimate number. It takes a lot of time to find when we do so many jobs for one customer and that customer has so many records. Thank you!!

        QB APP -
        Allow employee login with very limited access to post jobs (like installations) that they are doing or post timesheet.

        JOB COSTING is one of the most important financial reports we need! Right now we have to manipulate the system to get a what we want but this manipulation creates workflow issues and accuracy issues. We now create a class for every job so that we can assign all costs and revenue to that job and report on it P/L. We also use this report to pay sales commissions to our employees which are based on job profitability. I know that QBO has a field to create job numbers but it is worthless to me.

        To be honest, it simply BLOWS ME AWAY that Intuit is not developing QBO. I thought that they were a cutting-edge innovation company. Here they have the obvious future for cloud accounting software and they simply DO NOTHING to make it even remotely better.

        Using Sub-Customers would be a better way of tracking Jobs - In the construction world, class would be better used to track different kinds of projects - in our concrete company we use - Foundations, Flatwork, Masonry and Decorative

        We are a virtual company that builds websites. All of our employees work from their homes. Like construction business, we need the ability to track job costing on our projects. After years of using QBO, we recently switched to QB Enterprise hosted through a third party and access it through remote desktop. Although we have gained job costing capabilities, we feel like we have taken a huge step back with the remote desktop. We would switch back to QBO in a heartbeat if it could do job costing like Enterprise.

        we are a construction company and could really use job costing also. Also the ability to bill employee hours to the jobs and have the hours and amounts show up on the budgets for the jobs.

        There is already some capability to do job costing - the "Job Costing Report" is called "Income by Customer Summary."

        BUT WE NEED BETTER PAYROLL JOB COSTING - we gave up on it in QBO...
        payroll job costing, better estimating ability and improved invoicing are the three top improvements that need to be made to attract the construction industry. We are waiting, we are watching, we love our mobile apps, but QBO is not there yet to give up QB Desktop Contractor...

        Customer Jobs in the desktop version are really Sub-Customers - we just need better handling of the Sub-Customers in QBO - like being able to type the sub-customer name and have it pop up - in classic QBO, you can only type in the parent customer and then have to select the sub-customer...
