I am very excited to see what updates and new features we will see in QuickBooks Online in 2015; I have many features in my wish list, however the following are to me the most important I would live to see:
- Ability to do backorders via Sales Orders, and backorders for purchases by allowing you to partially receive a Purchase Order: This would allow many reluctant QuickBooks Premier users to move to QuickBooks Online because its current inventory shortfalls
- Customizable layout to the bank register, currently neither QuickBooks Desktop or QuickBooks Online offer this… However, this should provide for a more friendly data entry screen. There are tons of customers that prefer working from the bank register, rather than using online banking. Additionally, allow for copy/paste capabilities within the bank register (sor of like Batch Enter Transactions from QuickBooks Accountant and QuickBooks Enterprise)
- Robust user/permission controls, currently the user permissions are too broad, does not allow for good controls. Additionally, ability to choose which users can view QuickBooks from their mobile devices and actually limit what they can do.
- CSV/Excel Import of any transaction such as Invoices, Bills, Bank Transactions, Credit Cards, Checks, Expenses, Deposits, etc…
This article was not meant to be a wishlist, I have another article with my QuickBooks wishlist I started in 2013.
