chart of accounts sublevels

Hi there, @cash57.


Currently, the option to collapse the sub-accounts under the parent account is unavailable in both QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online. I appreciate you taking the time to share your suggestion in the Community and I'll make sure to take note and pass this along to our Product Developers for future product enhancements. 


Right now, you can remove an account either by merging two accounts or hiding it by making it inactive. Let me show you how: 

  1. Click the Lists menu, and then select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Click the account you want to hide.
  3. Click Account at the bottom of the list, and then click Make Account Inactive.

You can also use the following article as a future reference about accessing your Chart of Accounts, its common tasks and the types of accounts in QuickBooks: Understanding QuickBooks Chart of Accounts.


Keep me posted if there anything else  I can help while working with QuickBooks. I'll be happy to help you out.
