QuickBooksOnline Updates: February 2016

 

Here’s is the latest QuickBooks® Online release notes for 2016.

Inventory Tracking Improvements

Starting values are now editable. If you added an inventory item in the past, QuickBooks created a starting value transaction that couldn’t be edited. In response to your feedback, you can now edit this transaction! This is useful when you need to adjust the start date, initial cost, quantity, or inventory adjustment account of an inventory item. For instructions on how to edit an inventory item’s starting values, see the help topic Adjust an inventory item’s starting value.

Include SKU Information on These Inventory Reports:

  • Sales by Product/Service Detail. Reports > All Reports > Review Sales > Sales by Product/Service Detail > Customize > Rows/Columns >  Group By SKU or  Change Columns.
  • Purchases by Product/Service Detail. Reports > All Reports > Review Expenses and Purchases > Purchases by Product/Service Detail > Customize > Rows/Columns > Group By SKU or Change Columns.
  • Product/Service List. Reports > All Reports > Manage Products and Inventory > Product/Service List > Customize > Rows/Columns > Change Columns.
  • Inventory Valuation Detail. Reports > All Reports > Manage Products and Inventory > Inventory Valuation Detail > Customize > Rows/Columns > Change Columns.
  • Transaction Detail by Account. Reports > All Reports > Accountant Reports > Transaction Detail by Account > Customize > Rows/Columns > Change Columns.

 

Other Improvements

View the register in ledger style. Based on your feedback, you can now view the register in traditional ledger style – with the oldest transactions at the top and the newest transactions at the bottom. This includes being able to add a new transaction at the bottom of the list. Registers > Table gear >  Paper Ledger Mode.

Print a packing slip from a sales receipt. Create (+) > Sales Receipt > Print or Preview >  Print packing slip.

QuickBooks Online Payroll compact mode. See more employees at once when you enter hours, etc. on the Run Payroll screen! Employees > Run Payroll table gear >  Compact.
