Make Product codes appear on Purchase Orders!

RAY15

This is basic common sense how can the supplier know which parts we need if the part number isn't on the purchase order? Used to work on Desktop, who missed this with online? Someone screwed up.

 

FED UP OF ASKING AND BEING TOLD TO REQUEST THIS WITH 'DEVELOPERS'

 

Quickbooks software is a joke. No interaction between management and customers.

Who made that rule up? 50 votes? 

RIDICULOUS!

Hello RAY15, thanks for coming back to us on this post, we are reviewing the amount of votes before ideas are put forward to make sure that 50 is going to be achievable.

This is ridiculous though? Users aren't in touch with each other are they? How would other users know this was a vote? Will you email all the users on my behalf?

 

This is absolutely idiotic

Hi RAY15, we appreciate your concerns and we're working on ways to introduce visibility for other users to QuickBooks Idea Exchange going forward; we'll continue to review this to make sure that the number of votes needed is achievable. The ideas from Community users are all visible on the home page of the idea exchange, so users can vote on them. We appreciate that 50 votes is a significant number. It was decided we would look at the ideas most requested first and 50 was the number decided. We do take your feedback on board.

Why cant you see its ridiculous? There is a problem with the software, its clear that you cant send a Purchase order to a supplier without product codes, they don't know what parts we need!!! That's easy to understand right??? It doesn't need a vote surely?

 

I suspect there are no 'developers' Quickbooks is like the wizard of OZ - just BS with smoke and mirrors....

Hi RAY15, we appreciate it would be great to have a specific field for this on the PO. 

 

In the meantime, the code can be added to the description field of the Category/Item table. If you use stock tracking, enter the code in the items settings under Purchasing information > Description on purchase forms. This way, it will autofill when the item is selected on the PO form. Thanks again for your contribution.

Going round in circles now. Been down that road it doesn't work. 

 

That's not a solution. It used to appear in Desktop.

 

I note you haven't answered my question re 'the developers' actually existing?

 

Can you provide the name and contact details of the person responsible for Quickbooks online in the UK?

Ray it's becoming apparant that the 'devs' are probably a third party. Even these forums are managed by an external company, which for an international company if bonkers.
