  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.

    • 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.

          • 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!

              • Reports of Receipts

                Is there a way for me to get a report/ PDF off all the receipts that I've entered for a particular month or period of time? I need to send this to my client on a monthly bases and I was hoping that this accounting software would help me with this.

                • Estimates

                  I'd love to be able to create estimates in QBSE. Right now I have to do it in Harvest, which only integrates with Quickbooks Online. So I have no way to track estimates through invoicing inside one program.

                        • More filters for "Search Transactions"

                          Add "Category" as one of the filters when searching transactions. "Type", "Account", and "Timeline" are great but it would be nice to also have "Category" as well to narrow down only Transactions in a particular Category.

                                • Retain transactions that I've flagged as Business even after I delete that bank account

                                  I'd like to be able to retain transactions that I've flagged as Business even after I delete that bank account. For example, if I use my personal bank account for business transactions through February and then switch to a business-only account, I don't want to lose my Jan/Feb transactions, but I also don't want to wade through my personal account when I view and flag new transactions.

                                    • Billable expenses

                                      How can I connect my expenses to invoices without them reflecting on the actual invoice or charging the client. As in I build greenhouses. When I buy raw materials to build how do I reflect that receipt on the invoice for bookkeeping purposes but not have it reflect on the customers receipt?

                                        it would be great to have a field for tagging transactions, invoices, and mileage reports. I would use it for tagging clients and could then report on profitability by tag / client. I'd like to have a transaction that's "commuter train ticket" and then tagged to the given client I'm going to see. That way I can report on all my train tickets and also on all my expenses for that client.

                                          Simple to have total spending amounts / goals for the year per category. Mint already does this. Then watch your spending throughout the year vs. your planned spending and see the difference or how much you have left to spend.
