New for Item reports - custom field filtering:

Custom field filtering now works on Item reports such as: Inventory Valuation, Stock Status, Shortage, Physical Inventory Worksheet, Pending Builds.  

Filter date range on reports (all new option): 

The filter: This Fiscal Year-to-Last-Month

Send Forms now has a new Bulk Remove feature:

Clean up your Send Forms List in QuickBooks easily. In the past, you would have to remove each form - one at a time.  Now, you can put a check next to the forms you want to delete from list and remove them in one batch, quickly.

Batch Delete/Void Transactions (only available in Accountants versions):

Accountants can use this feature to quickly remove duplicate transactions or those done in error. 


Quickbooks 2013 Added:

QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier QuickBooks Enterprise Common Improvements:

1. If you have item names that do not include descriptions, then you will love this next improvement.  Under reports preferences (in the edit menu > preferences > reports) you can select to include the item name, the item description or both in reports.

2. Group items in prior editions only allowed up to 20 items, in QuickBooks 2013  you can add up to 50 items in one group item.

3. Adding a customer name to a bill, check credit card form, journal entry, or time entry had automatically selected the billable box. Now there is an option under preferences > Time > Mark expenses as billable, which when left unchecked, will leave the billable box blank.

4. New User interface (new design)  QuickBooks 2013 now has a New Design- New version of the icon bar - now on the left includes sections of "my shortcuts", "my apps", "my to dos", "view balances", "key reports".  The old icon bar and open windows list is still available for QuickBooks users who prefer the "old look"

Customer Center, Vendor Center, and Employee Center allow for unlimited note files, to dos, and
contacts. A tremendous improvement making QuickBooks an even better business management tool!

The Customer Record, Vendor Record, and Employee Record, are better organized.  This is a super improvement, especially for new QuickBooks users.  It is very easy to recognize the power of what QuickBooks can track for you with this new improvement.

Transactions now have  ribbon across the top of each for easy access to do just about anything.

QuickBooks Enterprise Improvements:

2013 Enterprise Expands the number of items allowed in Lists:
Chart of accounts, Classes, Customer types, Vendor types, Customer Messages and To Dos  from 10,000 to 100,0000
Memorized transactions from 29,000 to 50,000

Improved display when an item's cost has changed , QuickBooks Enterprise will pop open an easy to understand window asking the user if they would like to update the item cost, update the item sales price.

Advanced inventory, an add-on to QuickBooks Enterprise for $999/year had the best of the updates!

Previously Advanced inventory included:

  • Inventory tracking across multiple locations- older versions limited to 200 sites, 2013 now offers 1,000,000
  • Serial number or lot number tracking
  • First In- First Out Inventory valuation method

2013 Advanced inventory in QuickBooks Enterprise 2013 Added

  • Tracking locations within inventory sites (row, shelf, or bin)
  • Bar Code scanning -

    Need to purchase bar code scanning hardware-, QuickBooks Advanced inventory for 2013 supports most USB and blue tooth scanners. Look for the following specifications: Support for EAN-13 and Code 128 barcodes; Able to produce a single carriage return at the end of the barcode
    Barcodes can be imported using the add/edit multiple list entries

    Barcodes can be used to fill out sales or purchasing forms to speed data entry. While working in a sales or purchasing form, scan a barcode and QuickBooks automatically places the barcode in the correct field on the form.

Quickbooks 2012 Added:

1 Calendar View of transactions entered and due, along with a much improved TO DO feature.
In QuickBooks  you now have the ability to assign a date, time, customer or vendor name to the To do.

2 New Lead Center- this is the first step towards updating QuickBooks with a CRM module.
IT is currently NOT a CRM but a great step in the right direction. Its like CRM for beginners. In QuickBooks  leads can
be converted to customers, leads can have multiple contacts.

3. Improved help menu, will make getting answers in QuickBooks even easier

4. Improved search which will search for any customer, transaction, amount, the results pop up in
a new window which includes additional filtering capabilities

5. Batch time Entry for those contractors with multiple employees working the same job (Crew time sheet entry),
Time entry just got easier!

6. Excel integration has been improved in QuickBooks permitting the user to refresh data in an excel spreadsheet, preserving certain types of manipulations in excel. Formatting and formulas. Elements in excel that can be changed without breaking the link to live date in QuickBooks: Column headers (formatting and name), Row Headers (formatting and name), inserted formulas will be preserved, addition of new columns in between exported data set or end of exported data set.

7. Create a credit memo or payment from an invoice, Create a Bill Payment right from the Bill. Now that will save time- one click from the invoice and the credit memo is 90% done! Time to update to QuickBooks  

8, Contributed Reports- Report writing can be tricky for the novice user. In QuickBooks now there are at least one hundred (and growing) of report templates ready and waiting for you to download and start using. The titles are clear along with a description. Contributed reports are found under the report menu. These reports alone could save a QuickBooks user time and money!

9. Memorized Transaction Improvements - Now you can select which memorized transactions you would like to enter in the enter now window and which you would like to enter later. Also added in QuickBooks - a frequency of every two months.

10 Attached Documents to QuickBooks lists and transactions is not new. However, it is now FREE with QuickBooks if you save your documents on your local computer/server. QuickBooks will keep the documents in a folder named ATTACH found in the same location you keep your QuickBooks Company files. There are NO user rights assigned to these documents so your staff will be able to open the saved documents without having access to QuickBooks. Plus you will need to
backup this folder yourself! It is not part of the QuickBooks Backup.

11. Improved Company file condense. - QuickBooks is better at shrinking company files. There is now an added option to remove inventory transactions. It replaces inventory transactions with a inventory adjustment. In addition, you can remove all estimates, sales orders, purchase orders and pending invoices. For very large files you may still need advanced help with this, call us 800-216-0763 we off new file start services.

12. USPS adding to shipping manager

13. New Transaction tab - QuickBooks now includes a transaction tab on transactions - view linked transactions and
summary data in the same window

14. No Company File Open - QuickBooks all versions now includes an edit list option to remove files you no longer need to access on a regular basis

QuickBooks Premier 2012 & QuickBooks Enterprise v 12 new features

1. New inventory center (With QuickBooks Enterprise v12 add an image- image feature not available in Pro or Premier). View in one window Qty on hand, qty on sales orders, Qty on purchase orders, qty reserved for assemblies, and Qty available. Easily open a PO or Sales order for the item being viewed. In QuickBooks you can filter the item list fro items that have less than zero on hand, greater than zero on hand or customize the view to your needs. For premier users, open the inventory center from the Vendor menu > Inventory Activities > Inventory Center

QuickBooks Enterprise v12 only Improvements

1. Automatic price adjustments in QuickBooks Enterprise. Set a default markup percentage for each item, when the cost price changes, you can elect to automatically update the selling price by the markup. The setting includes an option to always update the cost, but ask before updating the price. Price level list- previous versions included a maximum of 100 unique price levels, now Enterprise offers a maximum 750 price levels.

2. Advanced inventory users (extra fee of $999/year) New features starting in QuickBooks Enterprise 12
Offers a view of inventory by location in the inventory center.
First in First Out inventory valuation rather than average cost is an optional choice - and select your start date
Multi-location inventory tracking (came out last year- however worth mentioning again!)
Serial number OR Lot number tracking - select which forms you want to show the Serial numbers or lot numbers
QuickBooks can be set to warn if the serial or lot number is blank, duplicated or does not exist.

3. Enhanced Inventory receiving - The item receipt and the bill are now 2 different transactions. An item receipt will increase inventory as of the received date but not increase A/P instead it will increase a clearing account, the bill will increase A/P based on the date you enter the bill, which will NOT change your inventory values, instead it will post to the clearing account. So after posting 1 item receipt and its related bill, the clearing account will be zero. But any future changes to that item receipt or bill which is also not done to the related bill or item receipt will cause that clearing account to no longer be zero. So strict controls should be implemented to avoid this problem. This feature is optional, and will cure the problems previously incurred due to negative inventory counts or changes to when inventory quantities post. However, this change is a global change and is irreversible. You should test this change on a copy of your data file to see the impact on your financials before implementing this change. This feature may cause conflicts with third party software you are currently using. Definitely a must implement for NEW QuickBooks files, and a TO BE CAREFULLY researched with an existing QuickBooks file. Need help with this evaluation? Call us 800-216-0763 and ask about our support options.

4. Find and select added to invoice, sales orders, and sales receipt forms. Now easily find the item without endless scrolling
This feature is not available on purchase orders or bills in QuickBooks.

5. Improved Multi-user Functionality - In QuickBooks Enterprise v12
Multiple people can Make Deposits.
Resort lists while in multi-user mode
Set Closing date while in multi-user mode
Adjust inventory in multi-user mode (not a new feature but worth mentioning)

Note -
With all editions, Payroll activities can only be performed by one person at a time
and Backup with complete verification still requires single user mode.
Pro and Premier - Inventory adjustments requires single user mode

Quickbooks 2011 Added::

Customer Collections Center -The QuickBooks Collections Center helps you manage collecting payments from your customers. It lists all overdue and almost due invoices in a single place. You can send email reminders to one customer or many customers, and it tracks customer notes about your collection efforts. When you send collection emails, your customer receives each invoice as a PDF attachment along with a cover note.

Finally - QuickBooks includes quantity totals on sales detail reports ( Sales by customer detail, Sales by Item Summary

New- Sales by Ship to Address in QuickBooks editions 2011.

New - average days to pay report , providing you with information on how quickly your customers pay.

Improved QuickBooks reports - Open Sales orders and Purchase orders Reports, now with a true value of open balance (Premier and Enterprise)

Preference for bill paying, you can set QuickBooks to automatically use credits AND/OR Automatically use discounts. This used to be a combined preference which most companies did not use, but now one or the other option is available too.

Balance sheet by class now available in QuickBooks

Batch Invoicing - create one invoice and assign to a batch of customers in Quickbooks! Great for monthly services

Customer Snapshot tab in the Company snapshot center - Provides users with detailed information on an individual customer
including sales history, best selling items, recent invoices and payments

History on transactions - When you open transactions in QuickBooks such as Invoices, estimates, sales order, and bills you see recent transaction history, name information and notes -saving time spent looking up these details

Set closing date password is a terrific tool to avoid having changes made to your accounting documents. But for those companies that were still working open sales orders and estimates and purchase orders dated in a prior year, this became a nuisance and the closing date password would be provided to many individuals, rendering the protection worthless. NOW.. a preference with the set closing date allows you to exclude estimates, sales orders, and purchase orders from closing date restrictions.

Multilocation inventory - requires QuickBooks Enterprise edition v 11.0

Online backup- improved- enabling a significantly better QuickBooks user experience

QuickBooks Search- within QuickBooks - searches all fields for key word terms

Web E-mail integration with QuickBooks - easy setup to the biggest email services (GMail, Yahoo & Hotmail) and
ability to hook up to any email service with information provided to you by your email provider

and when you open the transaction you see only the adjusted items

Have two companies open at the same time (Enterprise Editions only)

The inventory availability window existing on the invoice and sales orders is now available in the purchase order transaction-
QuickBooks Enterprise Editions only.

QuickBooks 2007 Added - Key features

QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier & QuickBooks Enterprise

Choose to auto fill  vendor bill/payments with just the correct chart of account  (elect not to prefill all fields
   with the last transaction data)

QuickBooks will now warn you when you are entering transactions with a future date or a date older than 90 days (the 90 day range can be modified)

QuickBooks now adds a date and time to your backup file making it easy ( for those  who consider themselves computer "challenged") to keep a daily backup - one for each day of the week , a monthly backup, and an annual backup. 

QuickBooks has made it much easier for your accountant to work on your file while you continue to make entries into your file.  
  This feature will import all changes made by your accountant and provide you with a detailed listing of those
  changes. Its easy for your accountant to make and send your an import file with changes. Now your books will match your
  tax return and your accountant will no longer spin his/her wheels determining the cause of changes to beginning balances.
  Whenever you have a problem with the file, make an accountant's copy, e-mail and send to the accountant to fix. Your accountant will
  review at the  next opportunity and make the corrections in the copy you sent. He/She will then send you the file corrections to import
  into your copy. All very easy!  This feature alone makes it worthwhile for both you and your accountant to be on version 2007 or later.
  Its good for you - you get accurate reports to make key business decisions without disruption to your daily workflow
  Its good for your accountant - spend less time reconciling and more time as a business advisor to your clients

Negative deposits can now be entered through the make deposit window. A great feature for those who accept
  sporadic credit card payments  and occasionally need to refund a customer a credit card credit.

Customization of forms has become much easier. Its time to give your company look a unique, professional look
    to your forms (invoices, purchase orders, sales order)

New edition has teamed up with Google. The Google feature works the same way as a websearch but limits the
   search to  QuickBooks.  Not to worry,  will only retrieve what your employees have permission to see. In
   addition, set up a Google AdWords account within QuickBooks and receive a $50 credit from Google to try out
   this form of advertising.  What is  AdWords? Go to www.Google.com  and do a search on QuickBooks. Those
   links in the right margin are PAID advertising through AdWords. See how your sales can increasing by buying
   key  search terms - for your community.

Are you still confused about what payroll taxes/forms are due when? This edition will remind you when to cut 
    payroll checks, when to file and pay payroll taxes and how much to pay.

For those companies who ship regularly with UPS and FEDex,  process shipments and print FedEx and UPS labels from within QuickBooks - and in QuickBooks you can use thermal label printers! You can even schedule pickups and track packages right in your QuickBooks software. Shipping Manager pre-fills the shipping labels with the customer address information from your QuickBooks Invoice or Sales Receipt forms. No more writing labels by hand. And no need to enter data twice. Shipping Manager is already built in to your QuickBooks software and it's FREE to use. You only pay FedEx or UPS charges on what you ship. And you can sign up for Shipping Manager through your QuickBooks software and start using it right away.

Price levels now show up on estimates.

Contractors edition will now keep track of when Vendors (subcontractors) workers comp certificate of insurance expires. QuickBooks and will let you know when entering a transaction to that vendor if there is an expired workers comp certificate on file.

Purchase and sell the same item in different units of measure. Only available in Premier Contractors & Mfg/Wholesale Edition
   Unit of measure conversion prevents costly errors.  Enter your item into inventory in smallest unit of measure for
   that product, sell on an invoice in a larger unit of measure. QuickBooks will reduce your inventory based on a
   conversion to the smallest unit of measure. For example sell 1 can of soda or one six-pack. QuickBooks will  
   reduce the soda inventory by 6.  Caution: Pricing for the six is based on the single can of soda pricing.

Enterprise now can add up to 100,000 list items (names, items, classes)

The easy step start up wizard (to set up new QuickBooks company files) is improved with the ability to select which accounts on a recommended chart of accounts that you prefer to use.

QuickBooks 2006 Added - key features

  • Improved window for "enter bills".  See the vendors address that will print on the bill payment checks.
  • Improved communication between the item record cost field and the replacement cost purchased on checks, credit card charges, bills and POs.  Now you have the option to update the cost in the inventory or service item when creating a new purchase transaction. Now you can base change item prices on unit cost.  This is a choice to change cost of an item in the item record (via a pop-up window) at the time the purchase transaction is entered. You can elect NOT to display the pop-up message via a checkbox, but whatever choice you make on that transaction (to update the item record with the new cost or NOT) QuickBooks will use that as the default behavior.  Its a good idea to discuss this new feature with all data entry personnel. You can reverse this decision by selecting "bring back all one time messages" option under preferences (general).   If the item is a component in an assembly, the bill of materials average cost will change when the assembly item is built
  • Customized pricing and rounding options make it easier to keep your pricing competitive
  • Inventory - Includes a new field for manufacturers part number. Search and sort by your part number or the vendors.
