What's new in QuickBooks Online: July 2022

July is peak barbecue season, and we can’t wait to share what we’ve been cooking up over here. Catch up on sizzling hot news and upgrades while you wait for your grill to work its magic!

Newly customizable left navigation menu in QuickBooks Online

In a nutshell: Starting this month, QuickBooks® Online business view users can customize their left navigation menu to complete tasks faster.

By using the customization feature, users can choose to show menu items they want to see in the order of their desired priority, and have quick access to pages they frequently visit.

Start tasks with fewer clicks:

  • Hide menu items you don't regularly use to make more room for more important menu items. Hidden menu items can be retrieved when you need them.
  • Reorder menu items on the left navigation menu so you can choose to display commonly used ones at the top of your left navigation menu for easy access.
  • Reorder bookmarks to suit your priorities, so that you always have your most visited pages at the top of your Bookmarks list.

Take control of the left navigation menu:

QuickBooks Online Payroll now includes multifactor authentication for added security

In a nutshell: Starting this month, multifactor authentication is coming to QuickBooks Online Payroll.

Intuit® is committed to securing your information by providing advanced security tools and systems. Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a layer of added security on top of the usual password requirement to verify your identity with a unique, one-time code sent on the phone number associated with your account.

You may have already experienced this additional identity verification when signing in or connecting your company bank account to QuickBooks Online. Now, you’ll see this security measure applied to sensitive payroll workflows to further secure financial data and employee identity.


  • Certain sensitive information will now be masked for security.
  • You may be required to authenticate your identity once per session when looking to add, edit, or view sensitive information.
  • To verify it’s you, we’ll send a one-time password (OTP) to your account’s phone number (by text or call) that must be entered in the on-screen prompt. Once authenticated, you can view, edit, or add sensitive information.

You can get ready for this security enhancement by making sure your phone number is correct and up to date. To view or update your phone number on file, please sign in to and follow the steps below.

  1. Go to Sign In & Security.
  2. Select the Verify link beside the phone number.
  3. Select the Change link beside the phone number.
  4. Update your phone number and select Save.
  5. Choose how you would like to receive the OTP, then select Continue.
  6. Enter the code in the provided field. Upon verification, you’ll see the status updated to Verified.

If the phone number isn’t yours, you have a couple of options. If you’re the main payroll contact, ask your primary admin to update the current number. Or you can have them add you as a new user with your sign-in and contact info. Find out more
