One of my favorite mobile apps is the Intuit Online Payroll (IOP) app. I can literally do payroll from anywhere I have access to the Internet, via Wi-Fi or cell service. However, this article isn’t for me to gush about the IOP app. It’s to tell you about the new QuickBooks ProAdvisor Mobile App for […]
You heard me. You need to CHECK THEIR DRAWERS. I’m not sure if you’ve had a chance to use the New! Improved! QuickBooks Online “drawers” (or “panels”), you should take a look at them. Because they sort of rock. What do they do? One thing that it does is makes it easier to add billable […]
Sorry I’ve been a little absent lately from this blog, but it’s been for a great cause. I’ve been traveling the country, presenting Intuit’s “Find Freedom in the Cloud… Your Way” tour. Since I have a two week break from the tour, I thought I’d explain what the training is all about, share some feedback […]
While technically, QuickBooks Online doesn’t do Job Costing, there are a couple of ways to make it work. My last article covered QuickBooks Online Job Costing using the sub-customer method, now we’ll look at using Classes to track customer jobs. Setting Up QuickBooks Online Job Costing To begin, you’ll need to have a QuickBooks Online […]
Yes, I swear it can be done. I even have a way to get Estimates vs. Actuals. The official party line is that QuickBooks Online does NOT do job costing. Intuit states: “Currently, QuickBooks Online does not offer a specific job-costing feature…”, but there are a couple ways you can set up Job Costing in […]

I totally understand and I’m here to help you make the transition. As I previously mentioned, there are just some things that QuickBooks Online (QBO) can’t do that […]
Thinking of making the change from QuickBooks Pro, Premier, Enterprise or even Mac to QuickBooks Online? Read this first. I want to say, if you are considering this switch: YAY! Most of the people in the QuickBooks community know that I’m sort of a fan, so I’m always excited to hear about one of my […]
Yeah. I said it. I know it might sting a little bit, but sometimes the truth hurts. What do I mean by this? I mean that I recently had a conversation with someone in her mid-20s (I am, at the time of writing this, only 38), and she and I agreed: We totally judge a […]
I thought I’d begin my Intuit Appcenter Series with the newest of my favorite apps, ZenCash. The title of my article is a tagline directly from their web page, and the answer – at least for ZenCash users – is most likely that it’s worth a lot more than what they’ll have to pay to […]
No. They are more like Chocolate and Peanut Butter – great on their own, but together, they’re special. Everyone knows me as the QuickBooks Online Chick. I truly adore QuickBooks Online. I think it’s pretty sexy – it’s always on, it’s anywhere I need it and it’s got new stuff every month. But my first […]
Tedious. Painful. Soul crushing. I’m talking about the old Online Banking in QuickBooks Online. And I swear – those are not exaggerations. Imagine having 90 transactions to either match or add to a bank or credit card account in QBO and only being able to see 4 at a time.
It’s an Income List, but not an income list. Confused? Don’t be, I’ll explain how it all works. Earlier this year, the QuickBooks Online team introduced the Income List.
