Improvement Request: Quickbooks, Could you please make “Ship Date” a column field in the Sales Order screen?

Hi All –

 

Here's an improvement request for QuickBooks.   If you feel this would be helpful to you, please reply or put a “cheer” vote.

 

QuickBooks, Can you implement this change in the 2020 release of QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise?

 

Request:  Please make “Ship Date” a column field in Sales Order screen. We’d like to fill out just one Sales Order screen if we had a customer PO with different Ship Dates.  On the SO screen, we’d like Ship Date to be listed as a column that could be updated. Ship Date is an important field because we have reports that are run based on Ship Date. 

 

(Here’s how to view the “Sales Order” screen in QB Desktop Enterprise:  Go to menu bar "Customers" – choose “Create Sales Order”.)

 

Current Situation:  If a customer submits a PO for product they’d like shipped on different dates, we’d have to make a separate Sales Order for each line item. For example, let’s say customer submits 1 PO for product to be shipped on 15 different dates.  Then, this involves entering data on 15 Sales Order screens because each of the 15 line items has a different Ship Date.

 

 

Requested SolutionPlease make “Ship Date” a column field in Sales Order screen.  We’d like to fill out just one Sales Order screen if we had a customer PO with different Ship Dates. Ship Date is important because that allows us to run reports by Ship Date.  The assumption is that the Ship Date in the column would be used when we run reports.
