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
Agreed. I would love to see an End Trip button. I currently have to toggle the automatic mileage tracking off and then back on in order to end my current trip and start a new one. This feature would be even better if it was also available on a widget so that I could perform this function from my home screen without even opening the app.

I would like an additional button feature on the milage portion of the app. I like that we can turn OFF the milage tracker, and I do this when I go out of town for example. However, I always forget to turn it back ON. I would like a button or feature, where we can tell the app to turn off the tracking for a "certain period of time". For example. I am going on a trip Sep. 8-15, and we put in stop tracking from Sep 8, and resume on Sep 15. That way I won't forget to turn it on. If I leave it on, I have to go in and delete all the movement during my trip and this is very time consuming.

I drive for Uber and Lyft. Consider linking the auto-mileage tracker with going online within each app. Turn on the app, go online... mileage tracker begins tracking. Go offline... mileage tracker stops. It would be a great help.
I know that Lyft provides all of your "online" miles at year end, but Uber only provides actual miles driven with passengers.

The idea, I thought, the idea of a mileage tracker is that IT ADDS the miles 4 u. Please make it so I can just put my stat and end miles in. The GPS option is very inaccurate and I don't always get a signal therefore lose GPS tracking.
Isn't putting in starting and ending miles an easy thing to add?

I do Uber & Lyft. Uber in the AM & Lyft in the PM. I separate them by name. No problems.
A end trip/fare button would be great if it could be added to the app.
I found the GPS unreliable with my i-phone using Quick book self employed. Unfortunately, quick book still does not have a android app. It is much easier to keep a record of start and end miles with a destination address. Furthermore, if there is a traffic delay for over 5 minutes quick book puts this as a stop destination and ruins the exact millage. I get a 50-50% of actual accurate millage recording based on my start and stop odometer readings. I am at the point finding it easier NOT USING GPS!!!

I'm setting up my wife with QB SE and definitely a bit frustrating to use a third-party, non-integrated mileage tracker. I would definitely prefer to see this available in the Android mobile app.
After all these comments Did anyone get a response or an update on the status of this issue? Mile IQ is just ok but i don't want to pay for another app when i already invested on QuickBooks
I was just about to post the same thing, it seems unproductive and inefficient to log miles outside the app, do the math and enter the result into the app.
The app should allow me to enter start and ending miles for the day and calculate the difference for me.
I drive for Uber/Lyft also.
It'd be great if the app could track each trip distance using GPS and mapping data.
Ideally there would be "start trip" and "end trip" buttons that would create a trip log for the miles driven.
www.automatic.com allows you to track business trips. It would be great if Self Employed allowed you to import this milage data.

I would love if Quickbooks would integrate with Automatic car adapter.
My CPA recommended Mile IQ, which I now use, it is overall really convenient. It would be really great if Quick Books would provide a way for me to import / integrate this data (automatically is best) from Mile IQ in to the QB app.

Absolutely !! There are literally thousands of us (Uber & Lyft) drivers that will without question use an application designed for RideShare. In addition . . . A generous referral program for new and existing drivers could quickly go viral and become a vital part of our existing recruitment efforts. Win / Win
We need Quickbooks for rideshare drivers Uber on
Quickbooks should make an app for the smart phone for Uber drivers to track their milage and expenses and create reports for quarterly tax right from the ipone and android mobile devices. I currently use falcon expense for auto
please create an uber lyft ridesharing app record keepping platrform for apple iphone. I use falcon auto expense reporting but its just ok. your leaving money on the table. just saying. I want to track my business miles by the day and income as a single entry by the week etc. I use my car for business and personal so I need to enter miles when I start driving for hire and when I get home each day
Mile IQ seems to work very well but cost $50 bucks (probably worth it). Also seems to run the GPS and drain the battery a bit but tracks every little errand. Very effective and beats writing it down.
Certainly a simple mileage tracking app would be extremely helpful to comply with the IRS logs that are needed to comply with the mileage deduction rules
