Welcome to the Getting Started with QBOA Community!

  

Day1.png

 

Welcome, we are glad that you are here!

 

If you are a new ProAdvisor or a long-time veteran, this Community is for you!  We’ve created this space so ProAdvisors can connect with and learn from each other.  New ProAdvisors can ask questions and more experienced ProAdvisors can chime in to help out when and where they can. We hope that you find this Getting Started with QBOA Community a resource that you come back to again and again.

 

First time visiting Getting Started with QBOA? To participate, make sure you're signed in/signed up for QB Community and come on back to join the group!

 

For the 1st few weeks, we’ll be sharing some tips and tutorials on QBO and QBOA basics just to get the conversation started.  Share them with your team, clients, or use them as a review for yourself.

 

Why become a ProAdvisor?

Becoming a ProAdvisor offers benefits that can help you grow your practice whether you are a 1 person office or a large firm.  And, the best part is if you have a QuickBooks Online Accountant subscription, then you are already eligible to become a ProAdvisor.  

 

Check Out QB Community's New "Getting Started" Video!

If you’re new to the QuickBooks Community, this getting started video  (.56 seconds) can help you learn how to navigate and get the most out of your experience.

 

QuickBooks Community Guidelines

As you are probably aware any new Community space also needs to have a set of rules and guidelines to help keep it thriving and a positive experience for all.  Please see our guidelines so you know what behavior and expectations we have put in place for all participants.

 

Bookkeeping Workflow Tips

I’ve never encountered a ProAdvisor that doesn’t enjoy time-saving tips and keyboard shortcuts that can speed up data entry.  Reference this post from our Getting Started with QuickBooks series that walks you through these tips and more.  This topic covers:

 

Keyboard shortcuts

  • Control + Alt/Option + ? to see the complete list of shortcuts
  • “Jump-to-date” hotkeys
  • Basic arithmetic calculations on sales form data and quantity fields

 

Tips & Tricks in Online Banking

  • Set up online banking
  • Using split function to divide transactions into multiple accounts
  • Batch actions to save time when categorizing transactions

 

Setting up Recurring transactions and Reminders

  • Schedule a transaction to be created automatically
  • Set up a reminder



Again, we just wanted to say welcome aboard!  We are excited to launch this Getting Started with QBOA Community!

Hey @CherylGrindell:

 

Glad to be here and glad to be able to help others as we all share a common journey of being a ProAdvisor.  I have been a ProAdvisor since 2002 and an Advanced ProAdvisor since 2007 (when they started that certification).  I guess that makes me a veteran.  I am also on the Intuit Advisory Board.

 

My firm is based in Estero, FL.  My firm is QuickBooks Online only.  My client base is Law firms, Real Estate and Start ups.   I also have customers that are a variety from QBO training, clean up,  and bookkeeping support as well as two other companies that I personally own.  I have a team that works with me including my daughter, a bookkeeper from Canada and a wonderful team of bookkeepers from a company called Analytix in Boston, Mass.  I also have a Virtual Assistant company based in Oregon that helps with some of my admin work.

 

I look forward to being of assistance here. We all learn and grow together!

Re: Welcome to the Getting Started with QBOA Community!

This is a great idea to have a community centered around QBOA. I'd like to welcome everyone who is new to QBOA and provide support. I got started with QBOA in the spring of 2017. Being a part of the QBOA community is an amazing experience. I'm available if you have any questions about starting your journey and certification process.

Re: Welcome to the Getting Started with QBOA Community!

Hi @CherylGrindell,

 

Thank you for bringing to life this new section of the QB Community!  As a long time follower of the community, I am honored to have the chance to help my fellow bookkeepers and accountants along their journey to become Advanced ProAdvisors.

Over the past couple of years, we have watched as Intuit gathered feedback from its community about the tools we need to be more efficient in our practices and QuickBooks Online for Accountants is the end result of all that research.  Thanks to recent improvements such as the "Work" tab, weekly tasks like payroll and account updates have been assigned to specific team members with scheduled due dates that quickly displays where our book of business stands at any time.work tab.png

 

As this new group continues to grow, I wish to offer my assistance to anyone that might be able to benefit from it.  It is my belief that "Together We All Succeed"!
