The Quantity and Rate columns are still available in Essentials, lelarrauriv.

 

We just need to customize the estimate template to show the Quantity column. Let me show you how:

  1. Click on the Plus icon.
  2. Select Custom Form Style.
  3. Click on the Edit link for the Estimate template.
  4. In the Content tab, click on the center page.
  5. Check the Quantity and Rate boxes.
  6. Click on Preview PDF and click on Done.

 

Please come back with me if you need anything else. Thanks!

Hello, thanks for your reply

I am been able to create estimates, but in my product item line, I can not indicate quantity. Is this because I am using Essential Plan?

I don't care about tracking the quantity, as I do dropshipping, however I will want my estimates to get the quantity to multiply for the unit price

 

Thanks

Check customize forms and insure that the down grade did not turn off the qty column on the forms, estimate, invoice etc

Hi, 

 

I checked my customized form, and when I see the preview show the quantity in the form.

But in the estimate screen, when I am doing estimate doesn't show. Or is there any other place where I can turn that off?

 

Thanks

When you checked the template and it had the qty block

bring up the estimate and use the customize link at the bottom and insure you have same template selected.

 

by default, QB uses the last saved template

Yes, it has the same template selected. 

It is a custom form, that was uploaded from Word

 

The same template has the qty in the form but when I am doing a real estimate, doesn't show up

So I think is because Essential Plan doesn't allow to track inventory therefore, no quantities at all are allowed even in estimates.

Good day, @lelarrauriv.

 

I'm here to help figure out some ways to get this estimate template working for you.

 

Let's try checking by making a new template for an estimate. Then delete the estimate and recreate a new one and make sure to select the correct template. However if the quantity still won't show on the estimated created, let's try using a private browser to check if this is related to a browser issue.

 

Depending on your browser, here's how:

 

  • For Chrome, press Ctrl+Shift+N.
  • For Internet Explorer or Firefox, press Ctrl+Shift+P
  • For Safari, hold down Command+Shift+N.

If this works fine with Private Browsing, I recommend clearing your browser's cache (regular browser) to start fresh. You can also try switching to other supported browsers or try an alternate computer. 

 

However, if the issue persists I'd suggest contacting our Online Care Support to help isolate this issue further. They can access your account in a secure environment and determine the cause of the issue using their tools.

 

Here's how to get their contact information:

 

  1. Go to: https://help.quickbooks.intuit.com/en_US/contact.
  2. Choose your QuickBooks Product.
  3. On the Contact Us page, click a topic.
  4. Click on the Get Phone Number button to see the support number.

Keep me posted how it goes. I'll be here to help if you have other questions.

Hello, 

 

I just post another question.

I am not located in USA. I upgraded 2 years ago from QB Enterprise and to avoid losing data QB, automatically put me in QBO USA instead of International.

Anyway besides phone number, is there a way to contact QB support by chat, whatsapp or message or email, as I don't have USA number.

 

Right now i could solve the issue of the quantity in the estimates, but now I found that all my old products that I had to make inactive to downgrade from Plus to Essential, as all were inventory, apparently now I only can create Non-Inventory products, and when I try to change the sale price to my existing inventory products, which I have to manually activate, show me an error message, as I can not put its cost or accoung of COGS
