You've come to the right place. The Job Estimates vs. Actual report is only available in QuickBooks Desktop, but I have an alternative solution for this,lenbeasley4-gmai.


You can use and customize the Budget vs. Actual reports in QuickBooks Online (QBO) Plus version. This summarizes your budget by department. 


Here's how to run the report: 

  1. On the left panel, click on Reports.
  2. Look for Budget vs. Actuals in the search box.
  3. On the upper right part of the report, click on Customize.
  4. Under the Rows/Column drop-down, click on Location vs Classes (or Accounts vs Location, depending on the category you're using) under Show Grid.
  5. Click on Run Report.

You'll want to export your reports to Excel so you can add additional information from there. Please read this article for your reference: Export Your Reports To Excel From QuickBooks Online.


Please reply to this thread if you have any concerns. I'll be around to help with this and anything else!
