May accountant webinar recording & slides

May 14, 2013

Hi all,


Thanks so much to those that joined me today for our May accountant webinar…there were over 300 of you! Lots of great questions and fun as always.


For those that had to miss it, here is the recording:

If you’d like, here are the slides as well. They aren’t that helpful without the recording, so I recommend you use them as a viewing aide but not by themselves: May webinar slides


I know some folks have had trouble listening to the recording in the past–hopefully we have no issues this month! Unfortunately, after spending many hours on the phone with GoToWebinar, we have not been able to identify a source of the problem since the recording does work for the majority of viewers across different browsers and operating systems.


Talk to you all again soon!

January 14, 2013

Just for QuickBooks Online (US) users! Year-end is now upon us! Are you ready? We’re here to help small business owners with completing the most common year-end activities in QuickBooks Online, like how to prepare your 1099’s. We answer lots of year-end questions over the phone, but instead of keeping these conversations to ourselves, we’re inviting everyone to join a live Q&A session on Twitter where others can see what’s being said and hopefully benefit from the discussion.

So ask away! QuickBooks Online specialists will be on Twitter to answer your year-end questions on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. PT.

To submit your question:
Login to Twitter on Wednesday, January 16, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. PT, and tweet your question with the hashtag #QBOyearend.

For Twitter newbies, here’s how to send your first tweet:

  1. Visit Twitter and create an account if you don’t already have one. Make sure that the “Tweet Privacy” checkbox in the Settings menu is unchecked. If it’s checked, your tweets will be protected and we will not be able to see them.
  2. From Twitter’s homepage, write your tweet in the “What’s Happening?” box. Include #QBOyearend anywhere in your tweet and make sure to stay within the 140 character limit provided.
  3. Click on the “Tweet” button, and that’s it! You’ve sent your first tweet.
  4. To monitor what other people are saying, again go to Twitter.
  5. Enter #QBOyearend into the Search box at the top of the page and hit Enter. All posts with the #QBOyearend hashtag will appear.

See you there!

QuickBooks Online November Release

November 16, 2012

Add Attachments to Sales Transactions

Now you can add attachments to sales transactions (estimates, invoices and sales receipts) and send them to your customers.  Perhaps you want to attach a contract to an estimate.  Maybe you’ll attach a picture of a completed job or a timesheet to an invoice.  It’s easy and you can do it right from the sales transaction. You can even drag and drop files onto the sales transaction.

Easier Tax Time with 1099s and 1096

Tax season with QuickBooks Online is about to get easier! We heard you loud and clear over the past year: you wanted to be able to print 1096 forms from QuickBooks Online. So, this month, we are rolling out the ability for you to print your 1096 forms in addition to your 1099s. You’ll do this the exact same way you’re used to printing your 1099 forms: by going to the Vendor List, clicking the blue button in the bottom lefthand corner that says “Prepare 1099 Misc Forms,” selecting your contractors, and printing away! Note that this functionality is only offered on our Plus product.

Accountant Webinar on the Product Changes

Here’s the recording of this month’s release webinar:

Here are the slides I used so you can take notes while you watch: November release webinar slides (Alternative link You really won’t get the good info and detail without the recording, so I do recommend watching, not just looking at the slides.


Upcoming maintenance in December

As part of our efforts to improve service, QuickBooks Online and attached services (such as QuickBooks Online Payroll) will be unavailable to some customers for a short period on Dec. 6 and on Dec. 12 for planned maintenance. We expect the service to be offline during the following time frames:

  • 10pm PT on Dec 6 to 1am PT on Dec 7
  • 10pm PT on Dec 12 to 1am PT on Dec 13

Thank you for your patience during this maintenance period, and for your continued business.
