How to set up a weekly notification bell

It's a pleasure to have you here today, @advauto-samoaonl.


There isn't a built-in notification feature that you can set for specific purposes inside QuickBooks Online (QBO). However, you can consider setting up a recurring bill reminder since this will show in your dashboard once it's ready. If you wish to continue with this method, we'll gladly write down the steps to get you going:


  1. Access your QuickBooks Online company and then create a new bill or open an existing one.
  2. Fill in the data that you want to include on a recurring basis such as vendor, account and available fields.
  3. At the bottom of the bill, select Make recurring. QuickBooks Online creates a copy of the bill and adds a "Recurring Bill" section so you can set the recurring bill's preferences.
  4. Enter a template name.
  5. From the Type drop-down, select Reminder.
  6. On the Create _ days in advance field, enter the number of days before the date set in the "Interval" section you want the bill to be created in advance. If you selected Reminder from Type dropdown, enter how many days before the transaction date you want to be reminded.
  7. Specify the Interval and Start date of the recurring transaction.
  8. From the End dropdown, specify if you want it to end that transaction after a number of occurrences, by a set end date, or to continue recurring.
  9. Once done, select Save template.
