Why don't estimates show up in job reporting as committed costs?
Thanks for getting back to us, @kilowhatt. I’ll share some information about estimates in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
The option to add estimates to your job cost reports is unavailable, as an estimate is a non-posting transaction. Non-posting transactions are saved, but their totals aren't included in the report. They also have no impact on the customer's or account receivable balances. What we can do instead is to run the Estimate report and Filter your Jobs.
In addition, you can refer to the following about customizing and memorizing reports in QuickBooks Online.
