What’s New in QBO: February 2019

2 min read

It takes an extra boost to stay productive in February. The weather’s bitter. The days are fewer. And there’s enough heart-shaped candy around to ride a sugar-crash coma into March.

For help staying on track, check out our latest QuickBooks® Online updates aimed at helping you cut down on wasted time and energy.

New! Simultaneously manage multiple companies in the QuickBooks Online app

In a nutshell: With the latest version of the QuickBooks Online app, you can work in multiple companies at once. No sifting through different browsers or signing in and out of various accounts. Just log in once to access all your QuickBooks Online companies in a single place.

How it works: Select the companies you want to work on from the drop-down in the top right corner (where it says “Andrew’s Apples” below).

A new tab will open for the company you choose, and you’re ready to work:

  • Open as many tabs and windows as you want to quickly jump between companies and tasks.
  • Easily shuffle companies from one tab to another to keep your workflow organized.
  • Drag and drop windows anywhere, even across screens.

In addition to multi-company support, the updated app includes all the time-saving functions you already love, such as permanent sign-in, keyboard shortcuts, and auto updates.

New! Workers’ comp insurance available within your workflow

In a nutshell: On-the-job injuries can mean steep medical bills. To protect your employees and savings, you need workers’ comp insurance (it’s even required by law in 49 states).

In November, we began offering quotes for Intuit’s pay-as-you-go workers’ comp within QuickBooks Online. Now we’ve made it even faster and easier. Not only can you get a quote, but you can handle the entire shopping and buying experience online.

How it works: To start a quote, select Workers from the left navigation.

Below the Workers’ Comp tab along the top ribbon, you’ll see this screen.

Select the Get set up button to start the quote process.

We’ll ask for some basic information about your business and employees, then provide a quote.

After getting a quote, you can buy a policy directly online. And by setting up automatic payments deducted from your payroll, you can avoid a large upfront premium and keep more cash on hand.

That’s all for now, folks.

Until next time, as always, keep your feet on the ground…and your books in the cloud.
