modifying filters for reports in QB desktop 2019 for the Mac

I've got QB desktop 2019 for the Mac, and I cannot find the tab (or it is not showing up) that is supposed to allow me to modify the filters on reports. I used to easily be able to do this in the last version of QB I had. I read the "helpful articles" about this topic, but it wasn't helpful since I don't even have the "filter tab" showing up. Is there some setting in the preferences that I need to change??

Re: modifying filters for reports in QB desktop 2019 for the Mac

Hi Antonina,


Each report has a default filter icon. We can try to update your QuickBooks Desktop for Mac to the latest release. This can resolve common software issues and improve the program.


I've got this article for the steps: Update QuickBooks Mac Desktop.


Once done, let's go check your reports by following these steps:

  1. Click Reports located at the top.
  2. Select Report Center.
  3. On the left menu, double-click the type of report you want to create.

Then, check to see if you have the Filter icon located in the upper left corner. 


If you're getting the same result, please contact our Phone Support to investigate this further.


Here's how to get our contact information:

  1. Go to:
  2. Choose QuickBooks Mac Desktop.
  3. Choose any topic, and then click the Get Phone Number button under Call Us.

Just leave a reply if you need more help with the reports. Thanks.
