The New and Improved QuickBooks Online – you Decide

Posted by on May 17, 2014 in News Updates | 2 comments

For those of you that I have spoken with, maybe Intuit has listened and improved the QuickBooks Online for all of us to use. Therefore, I am sharing this email with you that I received from Intuit to see what you think of the new QuickBooks Online. Don’t forget to voice you’re opinion at the end of this email.

The new and improved QuickBooks
is here

Redesigned based on customer feedback

Hi Larry,Let me start by saying customer feedback guides everything we do. We know how much you count on QuickBooks, but we also know there’s a steep learning curve. Over the years, we have been adding features to QuickBooks Online to address your needs. However as QuickBooks Online grew, so did its complexity. So we started thinking in fresh ways about how QuickBooks could be designed to be easier to learn and use.
Then we built it. While we have been improving the product you use today, we worked in the background on the new version, bringing in many of you to try out new concepts and designs as we created them.

What is changing?
We had several goals in mind. Build a simpler, cleaner QuickBooks Online that is intuitive and easy to navigate and use. Group commonly used features so that common workflows, such as creating invoices, can be done quickly and efficiently. Simplify the navigation, but let you do more from each page without having to leave your current task. Plus, do all this while maintaining all the features you’ve come to know and love. And above all, make it fast!
The result is a modern, easy to use QuickBooks with real advantages in organization and efficiency that we hope you will like. Plus we built some new capabilities you have been asking for. Finally, the new QuickBooks works on a tablet, as it should. We are cautiously excited. We believe we have made some awesome improvements. We also recognize that change is hard.
Why did we change it?
Naturally, we are eager to know what you think of it. The new look might be a surprise to some of you–you didn’t ask for a redesign, after all. Changing something you have spent months (or years) learning can leave you feeling like you’re starting over.
But we hope you don’t feel that way about the new QuickBooks. Sure, it looks different, but you can do a lot more with it, and it’s much easier to learn and use. Most importantly, we spent a ton of time with customers as we built it. In fact, it was customer feedback that guided us to take on these changes in the first place. Every change we made was based on something we learned from you.
This is the beginning of a journey, not the end, and we are excited to keep improving the new QuickBooks with your feedback. And many thanks for all the feedback you have shared so far.

  1. Can you tell me if QB online has addressed to problem of transferring data from QB desktop to QB online. We signed up last year and weren’t able to transfer data because our company files are too big. QB online suggested using an outside company to transfer the data but even then they couldn’t guarantee it would all be transferred. Thanks, Deb

    • Hi Deb, my first question is how big is your company file and how many years have you been accumulating data? (Search my site on a blog about Large Company Files). Since you have a Desktop company file as your backup, you could give it a try, if it fails then your next step would be to import the Chart of Accounts, Vendors, Customers, Items Lists, and start a new QBO company file.
      That I know QBO can do meaning import your QB’s “Lists”.
      You would then enter in the opening balances from your previous period or fiscal year’s Balance Sheet. Now that – a QB ProAdvisor will be able to help you with.
      Remember, QBO does not do Job Costing with Payroll and it has yet to beat QB’s Desktop Inventory Control.
