Features new to QuickBooks Enterprise 18.0 Silver and Gold Levels
Features already in QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions from 17.0 and Prior Editions
Improved Multi-User Experience
Working with multiple users is a breeze. Far fewer instances require you to switch between Multi-User and Single-User mode. You can now pay bills, print checks, scan checks, link estimates to Invoices, and link payments to bills all in Multi-User Mode. When you do have to switch, it’s faster and easier with a built-in
Now two clicks is all it takes to see which filters have been applied to a report. Visible filters make it easy to reproduce memorized reports. The new filter tool also makes it easy to quickly toggle back and forth between reports.
Save time with faster searching. Begin typing a name and QuickBooks automatically fills in the rest. No need to memorize account numbers. No need to search the full chart of accounts to find that one client. Plus, you can search between values to find a transaction without having to remember the exact amount.
Automated Reports in Single User Mode
Set up and schedule customized reports. Save time by making sure reports are pulled and sent to your team regularly.
Remind Users of Undeposited Funds Clearly see which deposits require action with a new badge that displays the number of pending deposits.
Deleted User Names Continue to Appear in Audit Reports

Vendor and Customer Type Filter
Find the information you need faster with the ability to filter by vendor type and customer type.
With connected services we’ve implemented measures like Multi Factor Authentication to keep your business safe.
Features already in QuickBooks Enterprise
Sort by columns
Now you can sort within a QuickBooks sales transaction by Item, Amount, QTY, etc., and the transaction will save and print the same as you see it.
Add a Cost Column
Now you can add a cost column to all your sales transaction. QuickBooks will display the current cost listed in the QuickBooks item list as the cost. In the past, it was only available in the Estimate, now it is in all the sales transactions.
Search within a transaction
Do you have so many lines in your transactions that you often find it hard to find the line item you are looking for? Now you can search within a transaction for what you are looking for.
Shortage report on Build Assemblies
In the past, it was cumbersome to find the quantities needed within a complex build assembly. Now you can create a Shortage report from within the Build Assembly so you can quickly determine what products you are missing to complete the build.
Footer printing on last page only on multiple page sales and purchase transactions.
Some of you have asked me in the future to have a Terms and Conditions that you only want to have on the last page…now you can have a separate footer page!
QuickBooks running slow? In 2015 you can have unlimited user cache so if someone is pulling up a large report, QuickBooks will allow them more cache to pull that report, significantly reducing the time the report takes to display.
Total Columns in forms
Do you have a need to total a column? Perhaps you have a custom column for weight on a sales transaction because you need to report the total weight of the shipment to charge your customer…now you have the ability to total any column in your sales transaction.
ES – Disallow Negative Inventory
We have heard for years that you don’t want QuickBooks to allow negative inventory. Now, you have that as a preference to turn on. QuickBooks is one of the few that do allow you to go negative, and for some businesses, it is a necessary part of doing their accounting, but if not managed properly, it can cause issues with your data. With this new feature, if turned on, you will be able to prevent those negative numbers.
Save comments on reports
Need to create comments on a report while in QuickBooks? Now you can!
Advanced Reporting (FREE Add-On with a valid FSP or Silver, Gold, or Platinum Level Subscription)
Probably the best new feature for those needing more sophisticated reports, Advanced Reporting is an awesome new feature. It takes the databases available in QuickBooks and allows you to create your own custom reports. It is a work in progress and there is currently not an option to allow users roles to be restricted, but this is a product Intuit has committed to developing.

Already in QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions
Enhanced Inventory Receiving
One of the largest problem with using Inventory in QuickBooks was that users would inadvertently change their item receipt date by simply updating the bill date when the item receipt was converted to a bill. This would cause a temporary negative inventory, which over time caused some big file corruption issues and mistakes in financial statements. This feature allows you to separate those transactions into 2 unique transactions preventing the possibility of this happening again!
Automatic Price Markup
You can choose if you want to have QuickBooks change sales prices automatically when the cost of the item changes. You can also set a global preference for the cost, and you can set overrides for individual items.
Images in the Item List
You can add an images of your product in the item record for a limited amount of items.
Increased capacity for Price Level Lists
Price Level Lists up from 100 to 750, which will help some people. This will help for those companies that reply on more specific price levels for individual customers such as restaurant supply distributors.
Find & Select in Sales Forms
This is pretty big…many have asked in the past if you can have a find and select when looking for an item in QuickBooks. Now you will have it!
Physical Inventory Worksheet filter by site
If you have been using Advanced Inventory.
More multi-user activities: More functions that you can perform in multi-user mode instead of switching to single user – set a closing date, make deposits, change list sort orders

Salesforce for QuickBooks
With a paid subscription through the Intuit App Center, the App synchronizes customer data with QuickBooks to provide streamlined information to those in sales and management to eliminate data entry in two different systems, showing aggregated customer information alongside probability for closing a deal.
Global To-Do List
The “To Do” list has been pumped up – now you have new features, and it is accessible from many new locations in the program. They are getting closer to making QuickBooks be a mini CRM product. You can specify actions to take, priorities, and much more.
Create Credit Memo from Invoice
They’ve added a way to create a credit memo when you are in the Create Invoices window, which is very helpful. There actually are several “one click transaction” options here in a “Create” menu item.
QuickBooks has numerous reports, and you can modify them to fit your needs. Now you can dicate who you share them with!
Updated Features and Improvements
This is an improvement on the “new company file setup”. Instead of going through the “interview” there is a quicker way for you to set up a new company file.
Improved Excel Integration
Now if you export an Excel report and then make changes to it such as fonts and added information, you can save this as a template so that if you export that same report later, your modifications will continue to the newly exported report. In addition, you can update the data in your report from Excel itself without having first open the QuickBooks company file.
Improved Help and Search
Adds a search box to the task bar which lets you search for help as well as searching for information in your file.
Is back and improved. You can now select how Inventory information is condensed, and more transaction situations are covered. You can also “strip” years out completely for those of you going though an IRS audit.
Batch Invoice for Time and Expenses
Improves the work flow if you are invoicing multiple customers for billable time and expenses.
Before your memorized transactions are entered, you can now see a list of them and select ones you actually want to enter before they are entered.
Transactions on the History Pane
View your transaction history within the transaction and make notes in the transaction note tab…all from within the transactin itself! No more having to enter a long memo in the transaction. See when it was emailed and more!
No Company File Open Window
If you had the 2011 R7 Plus update you saw that additional information was added to the No Company Open window, such as the file size and last date modified. One thing added then that I overlooked – the ability to edit the company list directly from this window. I like this improvement, now everybody gets it.
But Wait…there is more!
Enhanced Built-In Reports
