Helps me tremendously

I am a childminder, a small business in which I work from home. I really wish I’ve done this before instead of having a manual accounts book. It’s so easy to use and with just one snapshot of your receipt, it records your expenses. It’s also connected to my accounts so it records all your business and personal expenses; it then calculates the tax you have to pay at the end of the tax year. It also tracks your mileage use when I transport children to and fro or days out and or meetings with parents including all your personal trips. The only thing I would like is if there could be an option of 1/4 and 3/4 split between personal and business expense instead of just split into half. Otherwise I will highly recommend this app. Thank you quick books you made my life so much easier x

Terrible invoice and email format issues

One of the essential base functions for an accounting app is to be able to send invoices to clients. Only after sending an invoice to myself was I able to see how badly Quickbooks have set this up. Instead of the well presented and customisable pdf that you set up to your preferences, the email that is sent to your clients is one with a link and a demand for the total invoice amount in bold splashed across the page. Clicking through to the next page is another link with instructions, again in a large bold font, for how to pay ‘Your Name’ if they cannot pay the invoice. Then on clicking through again it takes you to summary of your invoice with another link to either view or download the final pdf. This final link does not always work and I have already been advised by other QB users that this is not an unusual occurance!

I think in order for QB to even be classed as a basic app they really should sort this out so you can at least customise the email template and then get their act together for the final download or at least offer the option of attaching it as a pdf in the first place.

To update in response to your reply Jay; please do forward on to your developers.

Average at best.

The latest update, 5.2.2, crashes every time that I try to take a picture of a receipt, even on a fresh boot. This is on an iPhone SE. Each revision of the software has got worse and worse with less functionality being practical. Many of my transactions with Santander appear as merely Apple if I’ve used Apple Pay for example, or the town that I have made transactions in. When it comes to setting rules, it is these last details that the self-employed QuickBooks app is trying to use. I don’t want to create rules for all transactions from an entire town! And not all Apple pay transactions are expenses.
Irony of ironies is that giving feedback to Intuit themselves through the QuickBooks app seems to be impossible on a screen with a smaller size such as this iPhone SE. This leads to most of the feedback I write not being visible and then the button to submit being slightly off the screen. I persist in using this app just because of its receipt capturing capabilities and now that is defunct I’m not quite sure which competitor I’m going to jump to. Test the app on smaller screens. It doesn’t scale well and I don’t want or need a new phone just for this.

Hi Alex. Please be assured that you'll be able to continue capturing receipts in no time. Our developers have identified the cause of the crashing issue and included a fix in the latest app update (Version 5.2.3), which is available now. We'd recommend updating QuickBooks and taking another receipt photo when time allows. If the crashing persists or if you have more ideas for improvement that you'd like to share, feel free to let our team know via email (QBCares@Intuit.com). That way, we can get everything working properly and forward your suggestions to the proper team. All the best. -Kristian, The QuickBooks Team
