Here's what's new in QuickBooks Online in March 2024

Simplify order management and visibility with Commerce

In a nutshell: Get effortless inventory, order, and bookkeeping management in one convenient platform designed for e-commerce businesses. 

With updated inventory functionality, available in QuickBooks Online Plus and QuickBooks Online Advanced, you can simplify inventory tracking and order workflows using automated accounting across sales channels. 

Using the Product and Services tab in Plus and Advanced, you can also get better visibility of all your products and variants, including stock levels and cost details. You’ll get notifications when inventories are low so you can quickly create purchase orders to restock. You’ll also be able to track new orders from multiple sales channels—and get insights on top-performing products and cross-channel sales trends.

All along the way, you’ll know where your money is going and get a clear view of profitability by automating reports to track the costs of your goods. Plus, you’ll get the peace of mind that expense payouts will automatically appear in your books.

Explore more ways to batch reclassify transactions

In a nutshell: You and your accountant can now access a powerful tool to batch reclassify additional attributes of bank transactions.

Rather than opening one transaction at a time to change it manually, both you and your accountant can quickly edit an entire batch of one type of bank transaction, like expenses or deposits. This update makes batch changes available to business owners in addition to accountants, and it allows you to edit more elements of a bank transaction.

Select Bank transactions and choose Categorized to start batch-editing bank transactions in fewer steps.

Add multiple approvers to workflows

In a nutshell: Workflows in QuickBooks Online Advanced recently expanded to include multiple conditions. Now, your workflows in Advanced can include multiple sequential approvers for bills that meet the particular conditions you specify.

No matter your organization’s structure, you’ll have the flexibility to set up the bill approval workflow that ensures bills reach all necessary stakeholders before getting paid. Plus, you can track and reference an audit trail of these approvals in real time both during and after the process.

More control in Apps

In a nutshell: Business owners now have more control over which apps are connected to QuickBooks Online. 

Each primary admin on a QuickBooks subscription can now disconnect apps that were connected by others using the same subscription. Previously, primary admins could only view Admin info for apps connected by other admins. Now, you can focus on the apps you depend on by choosing Disconnect to remove unused or unwanted apps from the list.

New KPI insights for your business

In a nutshell: You now have more ways than ever to track your business performance. 

In your homepage or Business overview, you’ll be able to choose from a few new widgets to highlight specific KPIs. Adding new insights helps you understand your business’s performance and financial health.

New widgets include the following:

  • Mileage summarizes client travel mileage during business trips added to QuickBooks Online. This widget was previously exclusive to QuickBooks Online mobile.
  • Accounts Payable summarizes short-term debts and liabilities your business owes its vendors and suppliers.                                                       
  • Accounts Receivable summarizes the amounts your business has invoiced but not yet received.

To add a new widget, select Customize layout, then Add or remove widgets.

  • See all pay types, deductions, and contributions assigned to employees.
  • See all employees assigned to each pay item. 
  • Assign multiple employees to each pay item in a simple workflow. 
  • Filter employees by work location, employment status, and employee type.
  • Edit multiple employees’ assignment details simultaneously.
