Hi Brian!

 

I'll help you on questions 5 and 6 since Mirriam is already out of the office.

 

Good news because QuickBooks has a Location tracking feature that lets you tag locations in your transactions. Then, you can run the Profit and Loss by Location report to see your net profit per company. You can try this using the QuickBooks Online Test Drive account.

 

To enable the feature:

  1. Click on the Gear icon and choose Accounts and Settings.
  2. Click the Advanced bar and click on the Categories section. 
  3. Put a checkmark in the Track Locations checkbox and choose a label.
  4. Click Save and Done.

To add a list of location names:

  1. Click the Gear icon and choose All lists under LISTS.
  2. Select Locations.
  3. Click the New button and enter the information of the first location.
  4. Click Save, and create a new one for the other business.

After enabling this feature, you will see a Location field on the transaction pages, where you will choose the names you create. Please refer to the screenshots below. You can click on them for a better view.

I've noticed that you have a few questions posted here. We appreciate it that you're utilizing this medium to get help with QuickBooks. You can also run through the QuickBooks Online articles if you need quick references in the future.

 

Let us know if you have additional questions about the feature. Have a great weekend, Brian!

I know there have been some issues with the chat feature. 

I have NEVER had luck with it.  If you really need to contact someone at Intuit, you should maybe request a callback. It's quicker.  I requested 2 chats, back in January.  I'm still waiting.  Lol

 

You can always ask your questions here, in the forum, and see if anyone might be able to help.  

 

Good luck.

I'd love to help you with your issue about QuickBooks Online (QBO), @pam-redsbarber.

 

May I know what specific help you need? I can answer some general questions or concerns you may have about QBO. Simply click the Reply button below, and I’ll do what everything in my power to assist.

 

However, if you still wish to contact our Customer Care support, it's possible that the chat business hours are off when you tried contacting us. You can check our Support hours and types article for guidance.

Hi Mirriam,

I’ve posted the first four of my questions in separate posts….it would be great if you could help with questions #5 & #6

 

1 – Subsequent A/P and A/R transactions after year-end/audit period.  Need to list the details (ck#, ck date) of A/P outstanding as of year-end paid after and provide the details of cash received (i.e. ck#, deposit date) after year-end of A/R outstanding at year-end.

2 – An Qkbks Desktop Customer lost / forgot their admin password (I want them to start closing the year… once we complete the audit.. the TB from last year… which Tied to the audit report has changed and they have no idea what has changed.  As you can imagine.. is a problem)

3 – New online customers not showing up under firm (they are already QkBks online customers that will continue to pay Intuit directly)… I can see them.. but no one else at our firm.

4 – I’m new and interested in training (CPE credits) for QkBks.  Want to know what’s recommended / appropriate

5-Can I use the location function like a class (client already uses classes for other purposes).  Basically I want to use location to capture costs between two sister companies.  Most of the cost / activity will go thru one of the sister companies.  I will manually consolidate the sister companies via excel for now… but I want to easily tease out / identify the transactions in the P&L reports that belong to the sister company.

6-Is there a test company I have access to play around in.. to see how functionality works, post transactions etc… It would be nice to test certain things before doing in a client’s data base

 

Thanks in advance,

Brian

I have clocked over 15 hours with 5 Advisors within my first 12 days of owning QB Enterprise. I have been old to instruct Microsoft to uninstall and reinstall Windows. I never had trouble with Windows before, my PC is working well, and nothing is out of order except Enterprise. Prior Accountant Pro worked fine.  Transfer/installation of 3 big files 6/5/2020: Pro Accountant 2016 data, and 2018 data, and 2020 data. Reference no. [removed]. Please let me send an email. I never was given Priority Circle privileges or informed how to apply when I asked.  Before I purchased the Enterprise, I was directed to a more specialized technical support . I was anticipating a problem of this scope and he was very helpful. Can this matter be escalated?

I'm very unhappy because I can't get any attention for my difficult problem. I have working with 5 advisors for 15 hours since my install 12 days ago. Don't these nice young people have administrators to guide them? One said he had 8 weeks of training which good. I would be happy to pursue other pathways. I find chat helpful.

Hello, camccoy66.

 

I want to take care of your issue as soon as possible. I'm more than happy to lend a hand here, and assist you in getting in touch with our agents. 

 

We might be able to resolve the problem here. What issues did you encounter in our Online Payroll service? More details would help. 

 

If you still need to talk with our support agents, the call back feature is accessible through the Help icon. Here's how: 

  1. In your QuickBooks Online company, click the Help icon.
  2. Hit the Contact us button.
  3. Enter the details of your issue with the payroll module. 
  4. Click Let's talk.
  5. Choose Get a call
  6. Complete the call back form. 

 

 

 

More details about our contact channels can be found here

 

I'd also like to help you fix the blank chat window. This could be a cache issue in the browser. When the cache storage is full or corrupted, it can cause problems on certain webpages. To confirm this, use a private or incognito window (it doesn't use the existing cache data): 

 

  • Google Chrome: Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Safari: Command + Option + P

Try filling out the chat request form, then connect with an agent. If it works, go back to your regular browser after chatting with them. Next, clear its cache to fix the blank page issue. Alternatively, you can use a supported browser as well. 

 

Our articles can also help you out with the payroll service. Browse for a topic and look for an article here. Change the product by selecting one under the Topics for section. 

 

Do you have any future questions for the Online Payroll service or QuickBooks Online? Please let me know and I'll help you out in the Community forums.

Is anyone else having issues contacting Intuit? I've tried to use the chat feature for the last couple of days... but it doesn't appear to be working?

I am an American living overseas in China. I no longer have a US residential address with things like utility bills going to it. I only have my parents' residential address to receive physical mail in the US. I do not have a US landline or mobile phone. Instead I use a Skype landline with a US number.

 

I cannot access my QB account because you've now made it a requirement to confirm my (years-old) account through a phone call. This apparently doesn't work with my Skype number, although it does work for other accounts of mine. In an attempt to explain my situation to you, I find I cannot even talk, email, chat, etc. because the gear option is only accessible from within my account. Which I cannot access.

 

Meanwhile, you automatically charge me each month for an inactive account which I cannot access, and cannot contact you about. Your chat feature hasn't been accessible. Navigating around the site to find some way to contact you is endless. Calls to any listed Intuit numbers, or any related chats have failed. I've wasted many hours trying to either be able to access my account or close the account. It seems my only option is to call my bank and have them stop payments to you. But I also want a refund for the several months where I haven't even been able to access my account. It's been useless, and your means of contact have been useless.

 

I'm very dissatisfied and angered by what appears designed methods of avoiding direct support. I'm treated as a non-customer to your absence of support because I cannot access my account and the help features therein.

It's been over a month since you wrote, "you'll hear from us soon," but no one has contacted me.

 

Meanwhile, another monthly payment has been extracted from me without me having accessed or used my QB account.

 

What are you going to do to help me?

This is not encouraging. 

 

As laid out in my previous posts, my attempts to reach any customer care members, by any means laid out, have been futile. This forum has been my only resort in my particular situation.

 

Since you cannot do anything about it here, and you can only "reach out" to an apparently unresponsive separate team, I'm left wondering how long I'll be stuck on this forum when all I need is one brief live call or chat with one of the many Intuit staff tasked with customer care. That really would take the tiniest fraction of time that all of this convoluted and over-designed customer care system is currently costing me and you. It's stunning that in 2020 a company like Intuit doesn't train and enable its staff to problem solve by thinking one inch outside the box. It's just a quick call, or a text chat, or even an email that would solve this.

 

As previously mentioned, I am a longtime paying customer.

What a waste of time this has been. But hopefully it steers others away from bothering to attempt to contact Intuit with similar issues.

 

Instead, simply dispute the charges through your bank/cc (just a few click-throughs online) and let them cancel your account for you by refusing to continue with recurring payments, and collect any refunds requested.
