Search Updates Within QuickBooks Online Accountant
Responding to accountants’ feedback to have improved search functionality, Intuit is introducing enhanced search capabilities within QuickBooks Online Accountant (QBOA). Now, ProAdvisors can search for information by entering a phone number, an address or information included in memo fields. Additionally, users can now search by using multiple criteria (i.e. phone number AND name). Finally, the new search capabilities also includes a list of the most recent search queries, allowing direct navigation to screens for data creation. These new capabilities can be accessed via the ProAdvisor tab within QuickBooks Online Accountant. This new functionality is now live for all global QBOA users.
