Report Redesign – The new modern design includes horizontal lines, background shading, minimum width and vertical grid lines. These improvements make it so much easier to scan a large report, especially when viewed on a computer monitor.
Field Search Boxes on Report Customization – Modifying reports in QuickBooks 2015 is made easier with the addition of the Search boxes and listing the data fields alphabetically.
Send Multiple Reports in a Single Email – The reports included in Process Multiple Reports are added as multiple attachments to a single email.

Want more details? Here are a just a few of the features that will be available to you!
Invoice/Sales Receipt Automation – While QuickBooks Desktop has memorized transactions, they still have to be sent to your customer manually. QuickBooks Online’s counterparts, recurring transactions, can be set up to be emailed automatically to your customers and you can be copied on each one.
Delayed customer charges/billing – QuickBooks Desktop has unbilled time and expenses, but again, we still have to manually go in and bill the customer for them. In QuickBooks Online, we can turn on a preference to do this automatically – either any time activity is assigned, daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. QuickBooks Online can remind us to do it or can automatically create an invoice for the unbilled time and expenses and depending on preference, either tell us via a message on the home page or not.
Activity Log – QuickBooks Desktop has the Audit Trail, which tells us when a transaction was created, modified, or deleted. QuickBooks Online, does this even better. The activity log shows when a user logs in, logs out, edits a customer, vendor, item, or account. It shows when a third party add-on accesses the data, when bank transactions are downloaded and when those transactions are matched or added to your register.
Bank transactions automatically downloaded nightly – In QuickBooks Desktop, the process of downloading bank transactions into QuickBooks has to be initiated manually, and if we’re doing this for you, we have to have your password. In QuickBooks Online, you can set up the connection, and QuickBooks Online goes out each night and automatically pulls in the transactions. There’s no need for us to have your user name or password any longer.
QuickBooks Online has Class AND Location tracking – QuickBooks Desktop has class tracking, the ability to track different profit centers, but QuickBooks Online adds one more layer with Location tracking. Let’s say you have a shop with two locations, we can track your business by location as well as by customer type. We can use Location tracking for each shop location and Class tracking for the customer type.
