Using URL's in Bill Screen

I am using Quickbooks Enterprise | Contractor 21.0


Where is the best place in the "Bill" screen to put a url that is linked to an image to the actual payable invoice? My goal is to be able click a link within the bill screen in QB that links to an external online document storage system, that opens up in an internet browser just like any url would. 


I have tried pasting the link in the "memo" field as well as the "notes" field and I can only copy and paste the link in my internet browser.


Please help!

Using URL's in Bill Screen

Hi there, ryan-tatumhomes.


Opening a URL entered on your Bill screen isn't possible in QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise. It sounds to be a good idea which would be convenient to other users who want the same feature.


You might want to learn about paying bills in QBDT by checking out this article: Pay bills in QuickBooks Desktop.


For now, I want you to be updated with the new features added to the software by following the steps below:

  1. Go to the Help icon.
  2. Click New Features.
  3. Choose either New Feature Tour or What's New.

Another way to get you in the loop about the latest news and product developments in QuickBooks Desktop is to visit our Firm of the future site. To narrow down your search, you can go to the Product & Industry News tab.

Hi, ryan-tatumhomes.

Hope you’re doing great. I wanted to see how everything is going about using URL's on the bill screen. Was it resolved? Do you need any additional help or clarification? If you do, just let me know. I’d be happy to help you at any time.

Looking forward to your reply. Have a pleasant day ahead!

No, this has not been resolved. What about adding a url to the "Attach File" of the bill? It seems like that would be the most natural way to add a url that houses the image of the bill... I have tried several different ways to get a link to work in the "Attachments", but am still having issues. 


Any ideas for getting a url to work in the "Attach File" of the Bill?


Using URL's in Bill Screen

I’m here to share information, so you’re able to add this URL in the Bill screen, @ryan-tatumhomes.

I can see how this feature could help you and your business. However, adding a URL to the Attach File section isn’t possible at the moment. You may consider using a third-party application so you can add it on the Bill screen.

You can visit our QuickBooks Desktop App Center, where you can find and manage apps that connect with QuickBooks. Just enter a keyword for this tool in the Search field.

Check out our Support page to learn more about the features, functions, and benefits of QuickBooks. This site contains resources, tips, and video tutorials to help your experience improved.

Let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns. I'm here to ensure your continued success. Have a great day!
