QuickBooks 2018 has finally arrived! The release of the new QuickBooks for Windows desktop includes many new and fresh features, along with developments and enhancements of the existing features.
The new QuickBooks brings with it many small improvements that are bound to make your life easier. Users will be excited to learn that the character of the QuickBooks Enterprise inventory will be present.
This blog will provide the main variations and changes that you will find in the new QuickBooks 2018, along with user reviews.
Multiple Monitor Support
Intuit has added extra features, which makes multiple monitor support much more manageable. The three monitors make work simpler and faster. The reviews received on this feature showed that some people were interested in this change, and some were disappointed with the implementation. Users have also reported that their productivity and efficiency has dramatically improved.
We also found that employees ranked the request for multiple monitors #1 by QuickBooks customers.
Search in the Chart of Accounts
Those that need to work with a lot of accounts simultaneously will find this feature extremely useful. Although this is a preexisting feature, it has proved to be helpful for many. There are comparable features that help keep track of multiple accounts.
Cash/Accrual Toggle on Reports
Another improvement that is noteworthy is the easiness of switching your financial report’s basis. Those that use Cash and Accrual more often will find the flip extremely useful. Those who work their reports on a cash basis and then measure them against the accrual basis reports will find that QuickBooks 2018 is a game-changer. Reviews showed that before the new QuickBooks’ release, switching from an accrual report to a cash report was a bothersome process.
Past Due Stamp
If one of your jobs is to resend duplicates of past-due invoices to your clients and customers, this QuickBooks 2018 feature will help you find clients who are due for payments. No one wants to land themselves in a situation where they are not timely paid or, even worse, not paid at all! Before this innovation, the invoices mentioned, “PAST DUE” in red, had to be sent out in the hopes that it would help in speeding up the payments. With the help of QuickBooks 2018, automatically “past due” overdue invoices are added for printing or emailing.
Brand New Keyboard Shortcuts
The new QuickBooks 2018 introduces brand new keyboard shortcuts useful for copying and pasting the lines into transactions. These keyboard shortcuts will not only save time, but they will streamline QuickBooks processes.
Inventory Report Enhancements
In the previous version of QuickBooks, you may often have been bothered by the fact that you could not modify the inventory reports by change filters or adding columns. Finally, the new QuickBooks 2018 has addressed this issue and allows for these modifications. This made QuickBooks even more essential to businesses and individuals. Inventory is essential to many businesses, and this upgrade makes it easier to report inventory accurately.
Enhanced Order Fulfillment with Mobile Barcode Scanning
The new QuickBooks 2018 will help modernize and update workflow by fulfilling open sales orders through “picking” inventory items. The central part required is the skill and capability to deal with remote devices. One of these devices is a barcode scanner. Now, you no longer must worry about being fastened directly to a laptop or desktop when you scan the items.
This added feature helps in merging four vendors at one time. Reviews show that this feature helps save a lot of effort and time for many accounting professionals that frequently work with merging multiple vendor records.
