  14. @SunburstSftware well you have joined us on a perfect day… it’s Q&A, if you have ANY questions at all, ask away #QBOChat
  15. @alisonatintuit I am SO anxious to start using some apps! I think it will help Cdn clients to see the App tab. #qbochat
  16. @SunburstSftware We want you to leave this chat with some of the tools you need to get started #QBOChat
  17. @MarnieStretch @alisonatintuit I don’t think that I would have even noticed the App tab if we hadn’t been using them when I joined #QBOChat
  18. @MarnieStretch are there any particular apps that you hope will be made available to Canada market? #qbochat
  19. I notice that you now have an option to customize from the bottom of an invoice. New? Or was I just not looking? #qbochat
  20. RT @alisonatintuit @MarnieStretch are there any particular apps that you hope will be made available to Canada market? #qbochat
  21. I deal with commercial/government construction contractors and QBOnline just isn’t there yet #QBOChat
  22. Does everyone know about  http://Apps.com  ? a GREAT way to find Intuit-approved apps that work with @QBOnline #qbochat
  23. @MarnieStretch – no haven’t done QBO certification – not enough hours in the day! #QBOChat
  24. @SunburstSftware I have a couple simple contractors that are a good fit, but many complex ones that need to stick to desktop #qbochat
  25. @alisonatintuit Definitely! Q. Is there still a choice of templates? I used to see a bunch but now I only see three? #qbochat
  26. @abacuslabs I really like that name for your handle! What’s your story? Accountant? Developer? #QBOChat
  27. @MarnieStretch I agree and can’t take the bigger guys to something that just isn’t going to cut it for them. No #eggOnMyFace #QBOChat
  28. @alisonatintuit We need little country flags next to each one to know where it works #qbochat
  29. Client has old Balance sheet accnts w/ zeros that won’t go away without customizing the report for nonzeros. can this preference? #QBOchat
  30. Someone on the community board said they couldn’t save memorized reports in new #QBOChat
  31. Does it drive anyone else CRAZY that there are always commas used in the numbers in QBO?? I mean it’s an accounting software/app #QBOchat
  32. @steffimcguire I think that customizing is the or collapsing that statement is the only way to get those out of the B/S #QBOChat
  33. @rabshaka21 Thanks! We’re an NYC startup out to kill the expense report πŸ™‚ ::no big deal:: #qbochat
  34. @steffimcguire weird… I hadn’t heard that. Are you using Chrome to access @QBOnline ? if not, it is the preferred browser. #qbochat
  35. @MarnieStretch #qbochat Need more customization for the customers & vendors and this app will allow it I’m just starting to test it..
  36. Q. What do you all use to screenshare? Sometimes I need to demonstrate QBO. Google hangouts #qbochat
  37. Come back when you are done! It’s easy to walk away and pick us back up RT @SunburstSftware Oh drat – there’s the phone! Gotta go #QBOChat
  38. @rabshaka21 That’s silly.client as a ton of old acnts & want to press bal sheet w/o customizing but it’s unreadable. #QBOchat
  39. @MarnieStretch yes we do. GREAT suggestion and I will take that up with the team. #qbochat
  40. Hey there! Are you snowed in like a lot of us? πŸ™‚ RT @TransactionPro Hi everyone. I hope you week is going well. #qbochat
  41. @alisonaintuit How do I access other countries QBO certifications? #qbochat
  42. Does everyone know which clients make a good fit to put onto @QBOnline ? And why? #qbochat
  43. @alisonatintuit @QBOnline Yes, i always use chrome for QBO. I guess i notice it in JE’s. (that’s what i’m doing the most). #QBOchat
  44. @alisonatintuit #qbochat Does everyone know about the TUTORIALS in the  http://qboapps.com  ? this is a Awesome feature.. learn about them
  45. @steffimcguire A workaround might be to memorize the report and give the client access to it? #QBOChat
  46. @rabshaka21 yeah thanks! Did that for now, but seems ridiculous if no activity for the time period for acct to appear #QBOchat
  47. MT @jazfun @alisonatintuit #qbochat Does everyone know about the TUTORIALS in the  http://qboapps.com  ? this is a Awesome feature..
  48. #qbochat – When you all want to customize invoices in QBO what app do you use?
  49. @MarnieStretch I think join.me i still free for business use. We use the paid version as you can have more than two people… #qbochat
  50. My twubs ain’t moving today. Anyone else having trouble? #qbochat
  51. @steffimcguire @rabshaka21 If you guys have serious feedback I can connect you with a PM? Seems like we might want to do that? #qbochat
  52. @jazfun We don’t do apps for invoice customization. We just get the client’s logo uploaded into the system…… #QBOChat
  53. @MarnieStretch my all time favorite is GoToMeeting, but it isn’t free. Join.me is good. I find the resolution in Google to be bad. #qbochat
  54. @jazfun I know @CathyIconis has Waaaaaay too much fun matching the colors of the invoices to match the client’s branding. #QBOChat
  55. @fundinggates I like the bad resolution to hide the fact that I was too busy to put makeup on! πŸ™‚ @MarnieStretch #QBOChat
  56. @alisonatintuit #qbochat How can I get a QBO just for testing? I have so many apps associated with my real account its confusing.. πŸ™
  57. @MarnieStretch there is a free version of join.me, for personal or business, but much more features in paid version #qbochat
  58. RT @taxgrl @MarnieStretch there is a free version of join.me, for personal or business, but much more features in paid version #qbochat
  59. @alisonatintuit I’d love that. at the same time, I know they are aware the reports are still lacking #QBOchat
  60. @rabshaka21 @MarnieStretch hahahah. I always put on my avatar for Google Hangouts…it drives me nuts when I can see myself #qbochat
  61. Request: Would love feedback on our QBO autosync for accountants – can play with it at  http://abacus.com  #qbochat
  62. @fundinggates Thanks! I really like Google Hangouts, but the few times I’ve used it, it’s been challenging to set up #qbochat
  63. @abacuslabs ooo another NYC startup. Love it! Are you surviving in this weather? #qbochat
  64. I lost this but I’m so excited that I found it! MT @abacuslabs @rabshaka21 Thanks! We’re an NYC startup out to kill the ER #qbochat
  65. @abacuslabs hiya – I can get more peeps to look at that & give feedback if you wish? Pls DM me so we can connect more directly? #qbochat
  66. RT @abacuslabs Request: Would love feedback on our QBO autosync for accountants – can play with it at  http://abacus.com  #qbochat
  67. @rabshaka21 @CathyIconis I Really Like this feature It’s a fun one! People like color it them HAPPY We like happy clients #qbochat
  68. @fundinggates Good to know it’s not just me! Google gets me rather perplexed… #QBOChat
  69. @fundinggates @rabshaka21 @MarnieStretch I use my normal face + scuba goggles & silly hat. Its juvenile, I know but it amuses me. #qbochat
  70. @MarnieStretch I’m a big #Apple geek, so it takes a lot for me to even use anything from Google…other than search obviously #qbochat
  71. @jazfun Can you email me? I will have to involve one of our care agents to help you get sorted out #qbochat
  72. @TransactionPro @MarnieStretch I use the citrix family. gotomyassist.. Love them #qbochat – 100 clients on unattended support
  73. @jazfun But the SHORT answer is to use the Sample Company (for testing) that comes with each QBOA account. #qbochat
  74. Someone hit “Undo” for one of the oldest reconciliations on the account, by mistake. #QBOChat
  75. @fundinggates @rabshaka21 @MarnieStretch LOL! I am in. – limited to 13 participants with faces, but it sounds like a lot of fun #qbochat
  76. @IconisGroup assuming that nothing old was changed, they should be able to just do one big reconciliation #qbochat
  77. @IconisGroup Oh dear. Best bet is to reconcile ALL periods as one, using the latest bank statement. #qbochat
  78. @taxgrl That’s what I was hoping too….. makes it sound less painful to clean up. @IconisGroup #QBOChat
  79. @alisonatintuit I am dabbling with Global Tax in @QBOnline and starting to think of some blog articles around this area…. #qbochat
  80. Interesting… global tax as in enterprise wide tax issues? Or international? @TransactionPro @alisonatintuit @QBOnline #QBOChat
  81. Hi Steve, welcome! Introduce yourself to the crew! RT @SeekJustice1 Hello all #qbochat

  90. @jazfun I need to post something to my blog been way too busy πŸ™ #qbochat
  91. @fundinggates I’m transitioning to one of those this week! I think I like it so far! @MarnieStretch #QBOChat
  92. @rabshaka21 Many! Get up and stretch every 20 minutes. Hands in air, sway back and forth. Then add a twist! #qbochat

  110. Q: Will QBO keep getting Tweaked or will more apps be developed to accommodate the environment of need? #QBOCHAT

  112. @rabshaka21 @jazfun @tsheets @fundinggates Can’t wait for summer! I got new bike pant clips from Restoration Hardware for Xmas! #QBOchat
  113. @jazfun ANSWER = BOTH! Cloud delivery makes it easy to add more features. But APPS help you go deeper than we can alone #qbochat
  114. @jazfun hopefully both, apps keep QBO from getting too bloated…they can let apps do the really specialized stuff #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.
