Default settings for reports

I am so tired of modifying the presentation of transaction reports when I open them. There is always too much data and columns that are unnecessary. The presentation forces me to scroll back and forth as well as up and down - a great time waster. 

I do modify the presentation to show only those columns I need and that all will fit the width of the screen. But in many instances, I am drilling down into details from a customized summary report, especially Trial Balance or P&L, and so I end of having to "redesign" every time I need details for the next account or item..

When the dickens is Intuit going to allow us this ability so we can quash frustration and lost time?

I do customize and memorize reports, but when I drill down within that report, the resulting transaction details are still in the default settings. How can that presentation be memorized?

I can help you with customizing and saving that memorized report, @Yogi


You'll have to generate the report, then customize it based on your needs. Once you're done, save the customization. 


From here, you can find, run, export to excel, edit or delete them from My Custom Reports.


Follow the steps below on how to customize the report and save it with its current customization settings:


  1. Go to the Reports menu, run, and customize the report that you need. 
  2. Click the Save Customization button once you're done. 
  3. Give your report a name.
  4. Select Save.
