Create Purchase Orders in the Mobile App
Add the ability to create purchase orders in the mobile app
Bake Mate commented
And as of 06-07-2022 this function still does not exist, please add this so we can do purchase orders on the move throughout our business.
seriously it looks like this has been a request since 2014 and we still do not have it. I simply need to be able to create purchase orders from my phone..... It cant be that hard.
There is a work around but it is a massive pain in the rear. Open your web browser, go to settings, check the " view desktop version" ( different on each browser) then create POs like normal. Just sucks we have to go through this to create a simple PO
We are searching for a new app to use instead of QBs. Tired of paying a monthly fee if I.cant even create a p.o. from the mobile app.
Is there no development going on at intuit?
I can't believe this request is unresolved since 2015. Please, please add the ability to create and send Purchase Orders from the app. I am always needing to order something and this is a glaring omission from the app. I have tried using the website on mobile QBO and that is a painful process and has frequently resulted in incorrect POs being submitted.
Mike Castro commented
I cannot believe that one of the most important elements of QBO isnt available in the Ipad IOS version of the app. Searched for it for ages only to discover othjers had left message very similar to this.

We require purchase order approval function and also access to this feature on the mobile app. This is a very important feature for our clients and unfortunately we cannot utilise the PO function so they have to use third party apps that do not integrate increasing the costs for our clients.

It would be great to be able to customize a PO. The signature portion confuses vendors.
What do you think about the option of customize Purchase orders?
I can’t believe this even an option yet . I travel a lot and don’t have the time to be at the desktop all the time
I agree with all comments. To record bills in the mobile app is essential. Every time I receive a bill I have to fire up a laptop just to record it, which is time consuming and inconvenient. Amazed that you can add a new supplier, but you cant record a bill for an existing one? Surely this is a simple feature to add to the mobile app please. Thanks!

161 votes and counting. What is the hold up QB? This is a feature that should be included with the basic QB online subscription. But, we would pay for if it was necessary. Maybe include it in the Essentials package to stimulate the subscriptions. Whatever path is taken, please do it ASAP. I was forced into 2019 trial version to migrate 2016 Premier to QB Online. Now, I only have 30 days to convert my entire company over to a system that doesn't have the ability to create work orders. This may affect our desire to continue doing business with QB entirely if it's not addressed ASAP.

Exploit the mobile features. Allow me to raise a purchase order (and assign to a job) on my phone when out on site or at the trade counter i.e. without having to ring the office for one from the web portal (because there is no one in the office as I am a small business).
Even if you have to have Purchase Orders and Timesheets in a seperate 'Project' mobile app.
It really is not unleashing small busines owners when they still have to open the web browser on a PC to do basic day to day tasks. It is stiffling the feature and ROI
Please add a section to create POs on the mobile app.
Guy Lapierre commented
I agree. I need this feature. I need the ability to create and receive inventory purchase orders.

On the first page you see when searching for Quickbooks it says "Seriously Easy TM online accounting software for small businesses in Australia" I think you should add the ability to create Purchase Orders from the app.
For a small business user entering a wholesaler and purchasing goods directly, it is counter productive having to scroll around on the phone creating a PO from the online site.

Ability to create a PO from the mobile app.
I ABSOLUTELY need to be able to create Purchase Orders from the mobile app.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!!!!

I do process a lot of orders from my iPhone and it would vastly increase my productivity and efficiency if there was a way to process Purchase Orders through the mobile app. Accessing the website via Quickbooks Online has worked thus far but it has almost left me in some pretty bad jams due to lack of consistent formatting through my iPhone. I would like to either see an update version of the website that is mobile-friend or more preferably, an option to process Purchase Orders through the mobile app. Much like the additional fee to process Purchase Orders through Quickbooks Online, I would be willing to pay an additional fee to be able to process Purchase Orders through the app.

I'd like to be able to make purchase orders from my phone. Matter of fact I want all features from the Web version on ios app. I don't use my computer much and it'd annoying to have to it to send a po.
For a small business that operates on the go, it is crucial to have the ability to make purchase orders via mobile and also see our current purchase orders on mobile. Right now we can not see a purchase order on a cell phone even using a web browser on the phone. If we pick up a purchase order, we have to take a screenshot of the PO and text it to our driver, that is backwards!
