Customize a Snapshot tab

SOLVEDby QuickBooks2Updated over 2 years ago

Snapshot provides real-time and consolidated information and lets you perform tasks from a single place.

There are three Snapshot tabs available in QuickBooks:

This tab provides a consolidated view of a customer so you get an instant glance on their recent invoices and payments, sales history, items they buy most often, and other summary information.

User-added image

You can easily customize any of these tabs to show the content you want to see by adding, moving, and removing content. If needed, you can restore the page to its original default settings.

Note that when you customize a tab, only you will see your changes. No one else can view your personalized snapshot.

Add content

  1. Select the Add Content button to open the content gallery.
  2. Select Show Preview to preview charts, graphs, and other available content.
  3. To include the content to your snapshot, select Add then Done.

Remove content

Select X in the upper right corner of a content panel to remove it from your snapshot. The content goes back into the content gallery. You can add it back in later if you change your mind.

Move content

Drag a content panel by its header to a different location and release it.

Restore defaults

Select the Restore Defaults button at the top of the page to restore the snapshot to its original settings. Any content panels you added are moved back into the gallery, the remaining panels return to their original position, and date ranges you chose return to their original settings.

Users can only see data for areas they have been given access permissions to view. For example, if you restricted a user from paying company bills, they won't be able to see the Vendors to Pay section in their snapshot. Find out more about how user permissions work, or change a user's permissions.

No. The Company Snapshot is customized for each individual user. The content you add, move, or remove is only for you. No one else can see your personalized snapshot.

You can only view those areas of QuickBooks to which you've been granted access. Contact your QuickBooks Administrator if you need to change your permissions.
