In Quickbooks Desktop edition, users are able to apply terms discounts when appropriate from the "Pay Bills" form. The discount is applied to each invoice as appropriate, reducing the amount to be paid by the entered discount amount which is applied to the appropriately entered category/account (I.e. COGS) and not affecting taxes already entered for the bill.
In Quickbooks Online, there is no way to do this at the time of paying the bill. The best (but far from adequate) solution that I have found is to enter the discount as a separate line item when entering the invoice. The problems this creates is 1) if the bill is not paid by the due date, the discount needs to be manually removed; and 2) the bill total shows the discounted amount, which can cause confusion.
I'd like to request that Quickbooks Online be "enhanced" to perform as the Desktop Edition has for years in this regard.
How do we go about properly requesting features/enhancements?
