  1. Customize categories

    Even if you could just create "subcategories" under a specific categoty to fit your needs. For instance, under "assets", I would put "music" and "equipment". Under "office supplies", I might add "lesson supplies". I am a music teacher. This would still be aligned with the schedule c categories, bit would allow me to stay more organized as these broad categories apply to my business.

    As of 04/29/2019, all customers in the United States can try out our first version of “Custom Categories”! You’ll see we’ve called it Tagging.

    You can try it out by logging in to QuickBooks Self-Employed through your favorite web browser and going to our Labs section by clicking on the Gear Icon and going to Labs (note you can also go this URL- https://selfemployed.intuit.com/home#/preferences/labs)

    Currently Tagging is only available through the Web (not our Mobile Apps just yet) for US customers.

    We would love your feedback as you start using this first version! Please use the “Give Feedback” link on the Labs page as our team will be closely monitoring this.

  2. Phone support for customer service

    You need LIVE support!! Talking back and forth through delayed e-mail responses is not getting my questions answered. I am doing what I am supposed to do but the system is not doing what it is supposed to do. But, obviously the e-mail communication is not gonna get it fixed. I can't even cancel/"unsubscribe" to my service because the system is not working properly and can't get a live person to communicate this too!! Frustrated!!

    Thank you for your feedback. As you’ve experienced, QuickBooks Self-Employed’s purpose today is just to keep track of your business income and spending, but we do hear you, and recognize that not being able to track all of your finances (business as well as personal) in the same tool can be annoying. We currently don’t have upcoming plans to enable personal finance tracking in QuickBooks Self-Employed as it would open the door to too much additional tax and reporting complexity that we don’t believe we can effectively support in the near term. That said, your continued feedback on the issue helps to tip the scales toward creating a solution and accomodating that complexity. We’d love to hear more about how you track your personal finances today, Mint or otherwise, and what tracking your personal finances in QuickBooks Self-Employed would need to do in order to work for you. Thank you…

  4. Multiple Business Tracking

    It would be nice to be able to track more then one business.

    Thank you for your feedback! We hear you that often you need to be able to keep track of multiple vehicles at the same time.

    To give a little insight into why this isn’t available yet, in order for us to release this feature we have to configure the connection between TurboTax in such a way that we would be able to send mileage tracking data for multiple vehicles from QuickBooks Self-Employed to TurboTax. We’re actively looking into how to make this work.

    As soon as we have any updates on this idea, we’ll post them here.

  6. Upgrade to QuickBooks Online

    Thanks for your feedback! We know there may come a time where your business grows and you need the more robust accounting features of QuickBooks Online. While today it is possible to switch over, it’s a very manual process and makes it difficult to easily move over your data from QuickBooks Self-Employed.

    We’re actively researching the best way to solve this problem. As soon as we have any details to share, we’ll post them here.

    Thank you for all the feedback! We totally agree with how important tracking retirement deductions is for your Estimated Taxes.

    While we don’t have anything specific planned right now, we are reviewing your feedback and thinking through how we can best solve this problem. As soon as we have any updates to share, we’ll post them here.

  8. State Taxes

    State Self employment tax calculator. Its nice to know what we owe the federal government but a lot of states are going to charge us with self employment tax also.

    Thank you for your feedback! Similar to what we shared with the idea for adding multiple vehicles, adding the ability to track State Taxes has implications for sending data to TurboTax, but also would require that we provide a great experience for how to pay your estimated State taxes.

    We’re reviewing your feedback and researching how we could solve for this need. As soon as we have anything to share, we’ll post it here.

  9. Inventory

    Need the ability to categorize Inventory Purchases. This is on the Schedule C under COGS. As of now, my purchases are being imported but I can't properly categorize them.

  10. Add Attachment Feature to Invoices.

    I shouldn't have to send my travel expense receipts in a separate email. I don't like the extra step in the invoicing process, nor do my clients appreciate two emails for a single invoice transaction.

  13. Start/Stop trips

    I have no problem with creating an entry each day for my mileage when I drive for Lyft, but it would be nice to be able to enter starting and ending miles instead. That way I wouldn't have to write down my start and end miles each night, take in the house and manually enter the transaction. Thanks

  15. Invoice Partial Payment

    Thanks for adding Invoices to the Self Employed product. I'd really like to integrate more of my business w/ you. In order to do so, I need the ability to apply partial payments to invoices. Thanks!

  18. Add Time Tracking

    I think a time tracking feature should be added... A lot of us entrepreneurs need to keep track of how much time we spend on each project for each client... Then we should also be able to import the time into an invoice that we send to our client... Please help bring my idea to life... VOTE!
    Thanks!

  19. Invoice without having to send email

    The only way I can "invoice" inside of QBSE is by emailing it to them. I don't want to have to email them to invoice it. Reasons why:

    1) Sometimes I have to add notes or PO# to invoices. Since I can't easily/clearly add this information on the QBSE invoice, I often have to export as an PDF, add additional text in Adobe Reader or Apple Preview, and then email it to the client. This becomes a problem if I can only "invoice" in QBSE by sending an email. The client then gets multiple emails / invoices that don't have…
