      • Sync QB Self Employed and QB Online Accounts

        I hate having to login to 2 different products and mark transactions twice. I would love the QB online Simple Start to sync with self employed. As I am wasting time having to do both.

          • Make it easier to upgrade from Quickbooks self-employed

            Not being able to upgrade from self-employed is a terrible first experience. I purchased the lowest cost version of your product as a trial to get to know your software. I entered a pile of receipts and data, and quickly discovered I needed more features. I mistakenly assumed that like most SAAS software companies I would easily be able to upgrade to another version with more features, only to find that I can't move my receipts over to another account without doing all of this work over again. That's an awful first experience. There's no excuse for not having your…

                • Add Mint.com functionality

                  There is a need to add personal assets like in mint.com.

                  Basically, Quickbooks Self-Employed should be like Quicken Home & Business in that it tracks finances like mint.com and then adds invoicing, schedule C, customers and reporting.

                      • Make it possible to exclude certain years.

                        I, for example, only want to use this app going forward. I think it is massively inconvenient that there is no option to exclude my transactions from 2014 & 2015. I've had to go through thousands of transactions. I downloaded this at the beginning of January and I still haven't gotten through them all to get up to date and for no reason. This seems like it should be an easy feature.

                            • create a rule based on $ amount

                              We have some fixed expenses such as 'auto loan' that are imported with the same header information as other transactions.

                              The functionality to create a rule based on $ amount would really be helpful.

                                • Why focus on W-2 instead of 1099?

                                  In setting up my tax profile, why are you asking me for W-2 information in a 'Self-Employed' product? My income as a self-employed individual is almost exclusively reported as 1099-Misc.

                                  Why not ask for an estimate of earnings for the year since what you are really trying to do is help me estimate/plan for taxes? If I was already setup with a W-2, my withholding is probably already in place, and I'm probably not truly "self-employed."

                                    • Keep a restoreable backup for every paying customer so when your system screws up their data you can restore it.

                                      Keep a backup of each customer's data so that in the event of a major error their data can be restored rather than forcing your customers to make hundreds of manual corrections.

                                      • Allow QB Self-Employed to export transactions to QB for Mac desktop

                                        I own QuickBooks for Mac (2013) and I'm trying out QB Self-Employed (online). I need a program that merges both services. I can't bring my bank transactions into the desktop version (without entering them manually). And I can't make invoices and tag projects by client in the online version, get Chart of Accounts, etc. Why can't you make it so I can export my transactions from the online version to import into my QB for Mac desktop version?

                                        • I would like to create a separate log in for my accountant.

                                          Create separate username and password for accountant access.
