  17. Hi all Sarah form Aero popping in just a leeetle late! #qbochat
  18. Q1: What do you feel is the biggest benefit to getting certified as part of the QuickBooks #ProAdvisor Program? #QBOChat https://t.co/DWvHlOy5aJ

    Q1: What do you feel is the biggest benefit to getting certified as part of the QuickBooks #ProAdvisor Program? #QBOChat pic.twitter.com/DWvHlOy5aJ
  19. @MeganTarnow Hey, Megan! It’s great to see you: I hope all is well! #QBOchat
  20. Hi everyone! Harika from Circulus here from Dallas, Texas, where the rain is pouring but spirits are still high because it’s #NationalMargaritaDay! 🙂 #QBOchat
  21. Hi! It’s Audrey with Blackburn Consulting. Gorgeous sunny, warm day in NC. #QBOchat
  22. @BConsultingNC Hush, you. We’re expecting another “major snowfall event.” #QBOchat
  23. @BConsultingNC Hey Audrey! Welcome back, glad you’re here! Were you able to get the Avalara partner program figured out? 🙂 #QBOchat
  24. A1: We hear a lot of #ProAdvisors say the biggest benefit to getting certified is the free listing on the Find-a-ProAdvisor website, which helps them connect with new clients. Did I mention it’s free? 🙂 #QBOChat
  25. A1 I learn new things that can help my clients EVERY. SINGLE. TIME I get certified. #QBOChat
  26. @QBOchat Btw, chatting using Tweetdeck today instead of tchat for the first time, so bear with me if I goof at all, haha :p I needed that full character count! #QBOchat
  27. @Naveena4Intuit Any chance we could add #CNAP (Certified #nonprofit Accounting Professional) to the check boxes on the Find-A-ProAdvisor website? #QBOChat
  28. A1: I think the training is the most important benefit. There are tons of accounting systems, and the training shows us the nuances we need to know about QuickBooks Online. #QBOchat
  29. @BConsultingNC Wonderful! Let me know if I can be of any help! 🙂 #QBOChat
  30. @QBOchat A!: For me being advanced cert in both DT and QBO means I get lots of referrals. This tax season alone I’ve rec’d at least 1 per day since Jan 1 and some days more! #QBOchat
  31. A1: Learning new things with every certification. Keeps knowledge fresh and able to continue to help clients. #qbochat
  32. A1: I can only speak for the community (as I am a very amateur accountant), but our members on QBCommunity feel infinitely more confident when they get answers from certified, badged QB advisors. The title really adds authenticity and authority.

    #qbochat

  33. @BConsultingNC Absolutely, and as a QuickBooks team member, we lean on each other!

    #QBOchat

  34. Hey QBOChatters- check out this awesome client onboarding guide and checklist that we put together with @hubdoc & @ ignitionapp - with input from @ Judy_McCarthy @HSatterley @Redmond_Laura to name just a few! https://t.co/3xDkuGUAs8 #QBOChat https://t.co/hcnbSFyfbF

  35. A1: As a company that integrates with QuickBooks Online, everyone on our support/sales team is a QBs ProAdvisor. As a result, we’re better equipped to understand our customers’ needs.

    So our biggest benefit is customer happiness. 🙂 #QBOchat pic.twitter.com/jnOaTIk32m

  36. @MeganTarnow @Naveena4Intuit Or a fill in the blank for other bookkeeper certification like ICB or NACPB certification so AIPB isn’t being the big bad bully with the CB TM? #QBOchat
  37. A2: The feedback we’ve received on this change so far has been very positive. We made the change to make it simpler for everyone to remember the renewal date and to plan for it. #QBOChat
  38. @KathyGrosskurth @CirculusTech Haha, I thought this was National Migration Day – as in product migration. Though I do call January through March “Transfer season.”

    #qbochat

  39. A2: Doesn’t matter to me when the date is for renewal but I’m sure it helps QB simplify. #QBOchat
  40. A2: Very happy with the change! It makes group training follow-ups more scheduled and easier to track! #QBOchat
  41. A2. I love the common renewal date. So much easier to track and remember! #QBOChat
  42. How’s everyone’s Thursday today #qbochat I know I am a little late…I’m in training and trying to keep up with my QB Chat Peeps… 🙂
  43. A2: If everyone is able to remember the 21st of September, hopefully it’s no problem to remember the 31st of July. 🙂 #QBOchat

    (On a serious note, all your answers suggest this is a very positive change. That’s great!) pic.twitter.com/mu16o6gkPW

  44. Q2: One big change that’s coming is a redesigned ProAdvisor tab in QBOA, where you can access your benefits and a revamped training & cert tab. Here’s a sneak peek at the tab for a paid Diamond ProAdvisor account. What do you think? #QBOChat pic.twitter.com/4tQmycnCIthttps://t.co/4tQmycnCItpic.twitter.com/4tQmycnCIt
  45. So….I might have screwed up Q2. Just sent out the correct one!!! Sorry guys! #QBOchat
  46. A2: I suppose I will answer the question with a question, is that a date that works well for accountants? Is that a time of year when you can handle any changes to your routine? #qbochat
  47. A2: The redesign allows you to access your benefits along with training and certification all in one place where you hang out everyday.#QBOChat
  48. A2 (part 2): I am a huge fan of simple dashboards 🙂 #qbochat
  49. @JOngQBCommunity For me it is a great time. Summer is the slowest part of the year if there is a slow time. #QBOchat
  50. A2: I love it. It’s been a drag having to log into both QBOA and “Camps” to find all my stuff. #QBOChat
  51. A2: From the looks of it they made it fresh for returning user, all while keeping it consistent to what people are familiar too. #qbochat pic.twitter.com/71OA4keu46
  52. A2: Love the simplicity and ability to do everything in one place. #QBOchat
  53. Side question, what is the best way for a proadvisor that is under a team/firm, to change their info to another team or their own firm? #QBOchat
  54. @PMarieeJ Happy that you were able to join us!! 🙂 We saw that sweet Spotlight in the #QBOchat Update email!!
  55. The July date is fantastic! Middle of summer when things are at a slow point. Probably the best time of year for us to manage changes. #QBOchat  https://twitter.com/JOngQBCommunity/status/966770059589828608 
  56. Q3: With the changes, QBO Certified #ProAdvisors will only need to complete a shorter recertification exam focused on what has changed in QBO since the prior exam. What do you think of this change? #QBOChat https://t.co/GEcAPHXmPa

    Q3: With the changes, QBO Certified #ProAdvisors will only need to complete a shorter recertification exam focused on what has changed in QBO since the prior exam. What do you think of this change? #QBOChat pic.twitter.com/GEcAPHXmPa
  57. A3: We made this change knowing that your time is at a premium and that staying on top of what’s new in QBO is important to our #ProAdvisor community. #QBOChat
  58. @PMarieeJ @QBOchat I haven’t used @billcom for AR, just AP. And, it’s been a LONG time since I’ve used Funding Gates. #QBOchat
  59. A3: Focusing on the relevant material is always important. We believe it’s a shift in the right direction. #qbochat
  60. A3: No more burning the midnight oil to study EVERYTHING! ? Just learning what’s shiny & new. #QBOChat pic.twitter.com/pLOLq0pDcR
  61. A3: Love this change! Allows us to spend more time on keeping up to date rather than rehashing old information! #QBOchat
  62. Q4: Another big change that’s coming to the QBO certification is a common renewal date of July 31. What do you think of this change? #QBOChat https://t.co/NlzxkC2jax

    Q4: Another big change that’s coming to the QBO certification is a common renewal date of July 31. What do you think of this change? #QBOChat pic.twitter.com/NlzxkC2jax
  63. That would be the correct Q4 (sorry for the earlier confusion on Q2). #QBOchat
  64. A4: Still fine with it. It’s nice to have it consistent across the board. Now if I could only figure out how many ACE credits I have! #QBOChat
  65. @CathyIconis @QBOchat @billcom Oh okay well I saw your firm’s information listed on their site and was like hey I know who that is lol so let me ask her about Funding Gates. So what do you typically use for AR? Do you currently still use @billcom for AP? #QBOchat
  66. @MeganTarnow I’m a little worried about that one too. And knowing where I can get the credits. Why can’t #QBOchat be ACE credits???
  67. @KathyGrosskurth @Naveena4Intuit, will the new dashboard make it easy to see where we stand with ACE credits? #QBOChat
  68. Hello #QBOCHAT Kids. Miss you guys and gals. Hope to be back soon.
  69. @BrightBooks Cindy! We miss you, too! Hope you’re well, looking forward to welcoming you back to the chat! #QBOchat pic.twitter.com/icvJ2iJzDk
  70. Q5. Another change is that there will be specialty training for products across the #QuickBooks ecosystem, starting with QuickBooks Self-Employed. What other types of specialty courses would you like to see? #QBOChat https://t.co/r6jgVDE3s2

    Q5. Another change is that there will be specialty training for products across the #QuickBooks ecosystem, starting with QuickBooks Self-Employed. What other types of specialty courses would you like to see? #QBOChat pic.twitter.com/r6jgVDE3s2
  71. A5: Naturally, I would love to see specialized training in the niches, as well as the products. #nonprofits anyone?? #QBOchat
  72. A5: We’d love to get your ideas here! Responses we’ve received so far include Job Costing, training for specific Industries and Practice Management. We’re taking all ideas into consideration! #QBOChat
  73. A5: Industry specific training would be great! Best practices for using QBO. #QBOchat
  74. @QBOchat A5: Payroll products (ie the differences between them and best-uses) and Payments. That would be helpful to advise our clients. #QBOchat
  75. A5: I’m with Megan. Give me specialized training in the niches. Nonprofit is mine so that would make me super happy! #QBOchat
  76. @BConsultingNC I would challenge the niche accountants to start your own training so you can show yourself to be an expert in that niche! Start by writing an article for #QBOchat 🙂
  77. @Naveena4Intuit And it would be great for us to upload sample COA’s for different industries #QBOchat
  78. A5: I think a great course would be teaching clients how to use the mobile apps and full web-client programs concurrently and effectively #qbochat
  79. @MeganTarnow @BConsultingNC Sponsors have to pay for their posts but accountants are free right now. #QBOchat
  80. @CathyIconis @BConsultingNC I’m writing an article for FOTF on Video Marketing and it will feature @QBKaccounting @nerdenterprises @royalwise and @MMartinezEA so look out for it and you can probably reprint! #QBOchat
  81. @BConsultingNC @MeganTarnow Maybe it is time to partner up especially if you guys handle different areas of the NP world. #QBOchat
  82. Q6. What is your favorite change to the QBO training & certification program? #QBOChat https://t.co/omPaRnSWve

    Q6. What is your favorite change to the QBO training & certification program? #QBOChat pic.twitter.com/omPaRnSWve
  83. @CathyIconis @MeganTarnow Even if we overlap there is SO much need for nonprofit experts. I’m all about collaboration. #QBOchat
  84. A6: The change to covering changes for renewal certification rather than covering everything! #QBOchat
  85. A6: I personally like the redesigned tab so I can access the learning from within the product at the moment of need #QBOChat
  86. @QBOchat A6: QBO Test revamp to cover new stuff only. The other changes I’ll haveta try out 1st before I can give good advice! #QBOchat
  87. Q6: The better scenario based QBO certification training and exam – having a better real world application always helps the learning process resonate. #qbochat
  88. @BConsultingNC @CathyIconis Absolutely. There are 200 #nonprofits in my NEIGHBORHOOD, so plenty of work to go around. All about the collaboration. #QBOChat
  89. A6. I know you already discussed, but I am excited that you’ll get to take a shorter re-certification each year after you are certified. #qbochat
  90. @MeganTarnow @BConsultingNC @QBMadeEasy We gotta share more success stories about this wonderful #QBOchat community!! I love it!
  91. This is only week 3 for me at #QBOchat but I’m a true convert. This group rocks!
  92. Q7. Any other changes you’d like to see made to the QBO training & certification program? #QBOChat https://t.co/mR0Mbd8K9v

    Q7. Any other changes you’d like to see made to the QBO training & certification program? #QBOChat pic.twitter.com/mR0Mbd8K9v
  93. A6. I also love the new service options you can add to your ProAdvisor profiles!  #qbochat https://t.co/c1SMXF2WeH

    A6. I also love the new service options you can add to your ProAdvisor profiles! #qbochat pic.twitter.com/c1SMXF2WeH
  94. A7: We’d love to get your feedback on the changes! If you would, please go here to take a super short survey:  http://intuit.me/2oiYvA1  #QBOChat
  95. @QBOchat A7: Several of us had mentioned having ACE Credits access in the same place. I think that should be the next focus. #QBOchat
  96. A7: Only if you could make certification a requirement for calling yourself a “ProAdvisor.” If you are selling yourself as a @QuickBooks expert, you should be certified. #QBOchat
  97. It was really exciting to learn/discuss all the many changes upcoming (and already happening) in QBO, but the best part is seeing all of you! ?

    Catch you all next week in another riveting #QBOchat ? Be well!

  98. @MeganTarnow @QuickBooks Except those old school guys that buy the proadvisor membership to get discounts on software. They get benefits in the program. You just need to focus on saying you are a CERTIFIED ProAdvisor. #QBOchat
  99. First time using @TweetDeck on a laptop for #QBOchat and it’s #AWESOME! Will do this from now on!
  100. That’s it for this week’s #QBOChat, thanks for taking the time to tweet with us!
  101. Next week’s topic is Recent QBO Updates (December, January & February). Schedule it on your calendar now! #QBOchat
  102. Remember to sign up for our newsletter to get the most up-to-date news on #QuickBooks and #QBOchat.  http://bit.ly/2nJVXIC 
  103. @QBOchat Hope everyone has a splendid rest of the week! I’m heading to Portland for the weekend for some fun times. Be well, stay awesome! 😀 #QBOchat
  104. A7: We’ve definitely talked about ways to make it recognizable on the QB Community :), might be a while, but we want everyone to feel confident about the knowledge they’re receiving

#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.
