Create multi-condition approval workflows in QuickBooks Online Advanced

In a nutshell: Recently, QuickBooks Online Advanced workflows began supporting multiple conditions, allowing you and your clients to more easily reflect real-life invoice approval scenarios. The addition of the visual workflow builder also makes it easier to create and edit a workflow by giving you a visual representation of it.

 With Advanced, you can now route approvals to different approvers by including multi-condition approvals. For example, if an invoice must be approved by different managers based on amount, location, or projects, you can specify that in your workflow. This added flexibility makes workflows more practical and usable for clients who need multi-condition approvals. It also helps reduce repetitive tasks and chances for error.

New diagnostic dashboard in My Apps

In a nutshell: QuickBooks Online has a library of 750+ apps that help you and your clients add industry-specific functionality and answer specific business needs. When adding any new apps to a client’s tech stack, it’s especially important to know the data is syncing back and forth and everything’s working well together.

You can now stay better informed on any connection issues that come up with the apps you’ve added. From My apps (within Apps), you’ll be able to better detect and understand any errors related to their app integrations, so you can resolve them. You’ll have a centralized dashboard where you can manage your apps, quickly see the status of their connections, and receive notifications about syncing errors. You’ll find out about any errors right away so you can resolve them, rather than continuing to miss out on important functionality and valuable insights.

With this update, your clients have better control over their apps and how they’re working together, so they can get more accurate real-time data and make better decisions.

Spreadsheet Sync custom reports in QuickBooks Online Advanced

In a nutshell: Your clients with QuickBooks Online Advanced subscriptions may already be using Spreadsheet Sync to edit their data and run reports through a two-way sync with Excel. Now they can also view their custom reports in Spreadsheet Sync.

If your client isn’t getting the report formatting they want through the custom report builder, they’ll find more enhanced options in Spreadsheet Sync. With it, they can use Excel’s native formatting to create their preferred composition.

To take advantage of this new feature, select ⚙️ to open your settings, choose Spreadsheet Sync, and follow the prompts to get started. How to use Spreadsheet Sync

See recommended QuickBooks Check matches in transactions

In a nutshell: If you’ve ever manually matched check transactions using a bank feed, you know how tedious it can be. QuickBooks Online now recommends the right match for each transaction paid with a QuickBooks Check, reducing the time you or your clients spend matching and recording these transactions.

QuickBooks surfaces one high-confidence match for each QuickBooks Check, using its reference number. This eliminates the need for a laborious manual step of sorting through similar-looking checks and cross-referencing multiple check numbers.

You or your clients can confirm each match right in QuickBooks for a more seamless accounting experience.

Attach receipts to transactions in real time with QuickBooks Checking

In a nutshell: Recording expenses just got simpler. When your clients make a transaction with their QuickBooks Checking debit card, they’ll get a notification to photograph the receipt for attachment to the expense.

Since the IRS requires receipts for every expense over $75 and basic info for the ones under that amount, chasing information to avoid an audit can create a lot of busywork for you. With this update, each transaction triggers a notification—and every uploaded receipt can save you time. 

Note: This feature is only available to QuickBooks Checking account holders who have the QuickBooks app on their mobile device with notifications turned on.

More complete employee records and photos in QuickBooks Online Payroll

Simplified Payroll item management

In a nutshell: Your clients can now save time by updating or assigning payroll items in one place, rather than visiting each individual employee’s profile. 

Currently, most payroll items or attributes are created and assigned to each employee in their individual profile. That makes managing more than a few items time-consuming and more susceptible to human error. As your clients’ teams grow, they’ll need an easier way to manage these administrative tasks.

Within Payroll, your client can go to Payroll items to:

  • View pay types, deductions, contributions, and garnishments.
  • View employee assignments and policy details like hourly rates and contributions.
  • Manage assignment details for employees.
  • Filter assignments by work location, employee status, or employee type.
  • Filter assignments by department.
