It’s great to see you in the Online Community, petnets.


Let’s configure the Expenses settings so you can enter a quantity into line items on a bill.


The steps to turn on the feature can be done easily. Here’s how:

 

  1. In the upper right hand, go to the Gear icon and choose Account and Settings.

  2. Select the Expenses menu on the left panel and click on the Pencil icon for Bills and expenses to update the setup.

  3. Mark the box for Show Items table on expense and purchase forms.
  4. Click on Save and Done to apply the changes.

After completing the process, you’ll now see the Qty column in the Item details section.


If there’s anything else I can help you with, leave me a comment below. I’m here to assist further.

If you're referring to the Category details tab on Bill form in QBO, you can't add Quantity column like on some other accounting programs.

 

If you're tracking Inventory and have Plus plan, then in QBO they have Item details tab to enter Quantity for inventory items.

So you have to upgrade to Quickbooks essentials to get this feature >? I think that should be standard option to have quantities on your invoices and expenses... or at least in  Simple Start... It should be as simple...
Thanks.

Hi Gold Property Maintenance,

 

The quantity column is available when you create an invoice. However, the option to have it viewed in your expense transaction depends on your QuickBooks version. This option isn't available in QuickBooks Simple Start.

Hello there, @tigerlilys.

 

Let me guide you about adding a quantity into lines on a bill in QuickBooks.

 

As mentioned by my colleague above, you can see the quantity column when you create an invoice. However, if you're referring to enter a quantity into lines on a bill, it isn't available in QuickBooks Essentials. This feature is only available in QuickBooks Plus and Advanced if you want to Track Inventory.

 

You can visit our site for more information about our product:https://quickbooks.intuit.com/au/pricing/.

 

I'll add our Help Articles for your "How do I" questions in the future.

 

Let me know if you need further assistance. I'll be happy to lend a hand. Take care.

I would love to have this feature to enter quantities in the expenses in the Category Details area. I have QB Online Plus that includes inventory, but for expenses it would be great to have a QTY column for those items we do not track, like supplies. I am also wanting to track all our recycling and disposal that we do. With a QTY column, it would be easy to make a report. It seems that others would like this feature also.
