Reports should be clear and legible so you're able to see your company data easily. I'll help get you back on track.
To adjust the column margins on your report, simply hover your mouse over the dividing lines between columns. You'll see your cursor turn into a grabbing tool, and then you can simply click and drag to adjust column width. This will help you resolve the issue of your headers getting cut off, and you can edit the look of the report to fit your needs.
That's all there is to it. Let me know if you need any help along the way.
The click-and-drag method is the only way to adjust the column margins on your reports in QuickBooks Online. If you're unable to grab the lines to adjust your margins, try clearing the cache and cookies in your web browser using these steps: How do I clear my browser cache and temporary Internet files? These stored Internet files can build up over time and cause bugs and latency in QuickBooks Online and other sites.
You can also try using Incognito mode in Google Chrome. This is a private window that runs independently from the rest of your browser. Here's more information about what that is and how to use it: Browse in private.
If you're still not able to click-and-drag the columns, please reach out to our tech support team so we can take another look at what may be happening.
Have a great day.
I have tried adjusting the columns using a private browser window in Chrome but I am still having issues. I am able to make the columns wider but I can not make them narrower, which is what I want to do.
I know how important it is to have control over the look and feel of your reports. The columns have a minimum width that you're able to narrow them to, so you may be hitting the default size. If you're not able to adjust the columns at all, I'd suggest following all the browser troubleshooting listed above. It's great that you've tried it in a private browser! I'd also recommend using a different browser type all together to see what happens.
If you're still unable to shorten your columns, please feel free to reach out to our tech support team and an agent can take a closer look.
I hope this helps.
Have a great day!
