  61. Q2: When and why do you use purchase orders? And, what do you use to best manage them? #QBOchat
  62. @QBOchat @QuickBooks A1: Using the Supplier/Vendor centre to recategorize entries with a quick dropdown #qbochat

  64. A1: I may be partial, but @XTBills of course – AP and Expense Payment capabilities in the same place! #qbochat
  65. @CathyIconis @expensify I read question as expense reports For expenses depends on the client Cash basis just use #QBO bankfeeds #qbochat

  71. @CathyIconis @BradCelmainis @tallie (American) just merged with @nexonia (Canadian) so I’m hoping we’ll see some crossborder babies #qbochat
  72. @CathyIconis @BradCelmainis It’s the sales tax πŸ™ Plus the US market is 10x ours. Even Canadian apps launch in the US first πŸ™ #qbochat
  73. A1 and for clients who spend a lot on Amazon, @Hubdoc can really help gather that info #qbochat
  74. A1 As I said handling expenses in QBO should depend on the type of client or business using it. Great part of #appification of #QBO #QBOchat

  84. I swear the questions aren’t coming through to me #qbochat
  85. @BizBooksCloud @Hubdoc oh yeah! We’ve been using that, but one client has had some connection issues. #QBOchat
  86. A3: One of my favorite reports is Income by Client Summary. Shows exact expenses associated with clients/jobs.
    #qbochat
  87. A3: AP Aging and the lovely vendor bar at the top of the expenses/vendor section. #qbochat
  88. Agree with @FischBooks YTD by Month is my top followed by Client Summary by class #qbochat
  89. A3 My clients have saved report “need more info” with all the expenses I couldn’t classify, Sent after running through bank feeds #qbochat
  90. A3 How do you all feel about the reporting in #QBO ? What else would you like to see? #QBOchat
  91. A3. Our users ❀️ the “Expenses by Vendor Summary” because of its simplicity and accuracy #qbochat

  100. A4: love the elegance of @UseTallie, usually. Still wondering where my #mobile #mileage went though. #QBOChat
  101. @BradCelmainis @QuickBooks I’ve been diving into the detail in @fathomhq to see the detail in a graphical format too. #QBOchat
  102. @BradCelmainis – I do this each month as part of the closing process. Great tool and helps me understand the details. #qbochat
  103. A4: @expensify for corporate credit cards tracking and coding. @Hubdoc for bills and syncing to QBO #qbochat
  104. @JoeManz If you want complex, then you are probably a construction company and there are great apps for that. #QBOchat
  105. Well comparing to an Estimate for starters. RT @FischBooks @JoeManz What is considered complex? #qbochat @QBOchat

  109. @MeganTarnow @UseTallie They used to participate in #QBOchat‘s years ago!! We’d love them back!
  110. True labor is not complex but if you have multiple burden rates & rates 4 different job types then #QBO needs an app 2 accommodate #QBOchat  https://twitter.com/butterflyforge/status/829793302660591616 β€¦
  111. Yes but clients complain its double work. RT @CathyIconis @vrcqbpro @FischBooks @JoeManz We create budgets as the estimates. #qbochat
  112. Q5: What other tips are there to help manage your expenses and vendors? #QBOchat

  114. Need to get back to helping accountants work with #QBO & the ecosystem of apps to make them successful & more profitable #QBOchat
  115. This is def not my area of expertise today. But there have been several apps mentioned that I will be looking for. #qbochat  https://twitter.com/QBOchat/status/829794533806370822 β€¦

  122. @QBOchat if it is from the US it is the International rate stamp #qbochat
  123. @BradCelmainis Agreed!! We need to put together a listing of those that give free accounts to proadvisors. #QBOchat

QBOchat Admin

#QBOchat began in July 2013 with the simple idea to host a weekly Twitter conversation around QuickBooks Online (QBO). We have since grown into a very strong community comprised of a diverse group of users. Our weekly tweet chat is held each Thursday at 3:00PM Eastern. The discussions cover a wide range of topics including QBO’s latest features and updates, business operation tips and apps that integrate with QBO, to name just a few.
