Welcome and thanks for posting in the Community, @userck-tang.


In QuickBooks Online (QBO), the option to enable barcodes is currently unavailable. However, you can use the SKU feature to help track your inventory items as a workaround.


Here's how:


  1. In QBO, go to the Gear icon at the top to get to the Products and services
  2. Click on Edit on an existing item or select New at the upper-right. 
  3. Enter the SKU.
  4. Hit Save and close.


To learn more about managing inventory in QuickBooks Online (QBO), check out this article: Add inventory products.


You can also run reports to keep track of your inventory. Refer to this article for more information: Use reports to see your sales and inventory status.


In the meantime, I recommend visiting our Blog site. This is where we share recent happenings and future developments, such as updates to newly added features. Here's the link: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/blog/.
