Intuit has recently added Mileage tracking to QuickBooks Online accounts. If you also download the QuickBooks app, (App store and Google Store) you can turn on auto-mileage tracking right from there at it will track your miles in real time and add them to your QuickBooks Online account. Both versions of the app are free.
This is not an answer to the problem.
First, to track mileage in QuickBooks online you have to enter each trip manually.
The US version of the Google Play app does not have mileage or mileage tracking.
Maybe Intuit should give up on forcing people into their version of mileage tracking (which doesnt exist except in Self Employed) when Microsoft includes theirs for free?
Hello there, @ARMProcurement,
Yes, QBO manually tracks mileage by setting up an employee as a vendor. Then, create an expense account and a product/service item for mileage. After that, enter a bill to track it. Check out this article for detailed steps: Track Mileage In QBO.
For the app, it's currently on a beta version. This is the reason you're unable to see the Mileage
menu on the US version of the Google Play app. You can find information about beta testing by going through this link: https://externaltesting.intuit.com/. This website helps you get to see products in the early stages of development. Also, I'll take note of this on my end so it will help improve your experience in using QBO.
Also, MileIQ is an unsupported app to integrate with QuickBooks Online. To help you request the integration, I suggest posting this to our Intuit Developer Forum. This is a separate community page designed for developers and QuickBooks users to discuss your integration request. Here's how:
I'm still here if you have other concerns though, just leave a comment below. Take care always, @ARMProcurement.
Thanks for this, but the reality is that people choose quickbooks online as a premium product over quickbooks self employed for some of the features, and that justifies the higher pricepoint.
The problem is that when you choose a more expensive and robust suite, you expect that the features and functions of the less expensive suites should be included in it without having to fight for it.
The funniest part is that self employed accepts .csv exports from MileIQ and drops the data into the quickbooks system without an issue.
Here's an idea for the quickbooks team - stop trying to reinvent the wheel and integrate with the #1 corporate office suite in the world (Microsoft Office 365) which includes MileIQ for free. MileIQ has been out for years and is tried and true and just works. Quickbooks should stick to what its good at - books - and stop trying to turn paying subscribers into paid beta testers.
Also, I'm not a developer so I can't leave an idea for the development team.
At a corporate level, valid feedback from your customers should be able to be routed to the correct department without making that customer jump through hoops to give some friendly advice.
I understand that Inuit is a large company, but if Home Depot and Lowes can figure out how to get feedback into the right hands to effect change, I'm sure Intuit can as well.
Thank you for sharing such a detailed explanation of what you need in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
The thing here is, mileage tracking in QBO is a fairly recent addition to its features. It's still in its beta stage at this time, and only available in the mobile app. I understand that being able to import your tracked mileage from MileIQ is very convenient for all our users. With that said, we've taken note of this suggestion. As always, we appreciate being given both the time and opportunity to improve our product to serve our customers better.
On the topic of sending feedbacks, you can do that straight from your QBO company.
Going through these steps will send your feedback directly to our product developers.
At this time, you can either use the QBO mobile app to track mileage or track it manually via the steps found in this article: How to track mileage.
