Is anyone finding quickbooks really frustrating lately

Hi spenorridge,


Thank you for sharing your experience in the Community. I'd feel the same way if I were in your shoes. I'll provide information about having a slow QuickBooks.


Slow performance can be due to poor internet connection or your computer or device doesn't meet the system requirements. A 3 Mbps internet speed is ideal for QBO, and we also recommend using the Google Chrome browser. Please check out this article for your additional reference: Why is my QuickBooks Online slow?


Feel free to continue sharing on this thread. The Community team is always available to help.

It used to be fine it glitches all over the place. 
select a customer to send an invoice and all of their details aren’t inputted to the page, only their name. 
select an old invoice and it doesn’t load all of the content. 
several times I’ve had to sign out and back in but that doesn’t always work. 
I was instructed to clear my cache and cookies which worked initially, but doesn’t always help. What I can’t understand is it has only started doing it and nothing has changed on my computer and it was fine up until around 10 days ago.

Hi there, @spenorridge.


Let me help you to resolve this error you've encountered while creating an invoice in QuickBooks Online.


Sometimes the error might be within the browsers. I suggest using a private window. Refer to these shortcut keys to open a private browser:


  • Google Chrome: press Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge: press Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Safari: press Command + Shift + N


Once everything is fine, you can utilize this article for a piece of additional information: Create invoices in QuickBooks Online.


In addition, when the customer pays the invoice, you must record the payment in QuickBooks. Check this article on how to track paid invoices: Record invoice payments in QuickBooks Online.


All I want is to help you with your growing business. Please remember that I'm always here to back you up. Enjoy your day.

ALL THE TIME! Well most of the time.


Over the last 2 to 3 months I can say that on average I can only successfully login 1 in 10 times. I've tried every device - laptop, phone, iPad - you name it. I've tried Safari, I've tried Chrome - ALL OF THEM EXACTLY THE SAME. Whether it is the app on a mobile device or a browser - I just get the spinning circle.


It is a nightmare and I am having to jot stuff down on paper and keep trying to remember to log stuff.


I've cleared the cache, I've tried private browsing windows - nothing works.


I am on the verge of quitting quickbooks and trying an alternative before I get too far into this tax year.

Yes, absolutely shocking... the new changes have made simple tasks so much more difficult.!

I cannot even download my sales to CSV file after the latest "upgrades"... could well be time to find another platform.
