Hi there, mari3.

 

Yes, we do have the Manage Routines feature. You can use this option to remind yourself about the upcoming bills. 

 

Here's how to turn it on:

  1. Click the Gear icon located in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Under Your Company, click QuickBooks Labs.
  3. Scroll down until you see Routines for QuickBooks.
  4. Click the Switch icon to turn on the feature.
  5. Click Done.

Then, go back to the Gear icon and follow these steps:

  1. Click Manage Routines under Tools.
  2. Under Remind yourself about upcoming bills, click the Try it Out button.
  3. Enter the routine information.
  4. Click Save or Save and Enable.

You can also check this article for more information: How To Automate Tasks with Routines.

 

Please let me know if there's anything else you need help with QuickBooks. Thanks.

Yes, Routines is still available in QuickBooks Online, joelamorales85.

 

You can follow the steps provided by my colleague RenjolynC on how to turn it on.

 

You'll want to view the article provided as well so you can customize the automation of tasks with routines.

 

If you have additional questions about the feature, don't hesitate to leave a reply below.

Thank you for your reply. I followed the steps but I could not find it in the QuickBooks Labs.

You're welcome, joelamorales85.

 

If you don't see Routines for QuickBooks in QuickBooks Lab, the feature is not yet available in your region. I've checked it with my other QuickBooks account and as of now, it's only available on the QBO US version.

 

I'll be sending feedback to our product engineers about this. They might be working on adding this to all versions of QuickBooks.

 

We're always open to suggestions to create a better QuickBooks experience for you. Don't hesitate to post your questions here in the Community.

Hi there,

 

I've followed the instructions for how to find this and set it up, but I also do not see Routines for QBO when I look in QB Labs and I am here in the US.  Any ideas?

Hi there,

 

I've followed the instructions as above, am in the USA, and cannot see Routines for QB under the QB Labs area either.  Any ideas?  The company is based in California.


Thanks!

Thanks for joining us here, AccountantHead.

 

 

The Routines was a beta feature last year. It has graduated into a full-fledged feature called Workflows, and now exclusively offered in QuickBooks Online Advanced.

 

You'll want to upgrade your subscription to the Advanced version to turn it on. Just follow the steps in this article on how to do change your subscription: Upgrade your QuickBooks Online subscription.

 

Once done, use this as a guide on how to turn the feature on: Manage workflows in QuickBooks Online Advanced.

If a feature is only available in QBO Advanced, I won't expect it would be available in another region in the near future. Consider having an additional app as a workaround.
