QuickBooks® Online new features and improvements – August 2022

By August 8, 2022February 7th, 2023No Comments

As summer draws to a close, we’re still carving out more time for paperbacks and less time on paperwork! Now that’s something to celebrate with this month’s upgrades.

What’s new in August 

Employee opt-in for paperless in QuickBooks Online Payroll

Bitcoin buy, sell, and hold capability in QuickBooks

Intuit® Practice Management new feature: File management

Employee opt-in for paperless in QuickBooks Online Payroll

While employees can access their W-2 digitally in Workforce, employers are still required to mail their employees a paper version. This new feature allows employees to opt out of getting a paper W-2 mailed.

To opt out of getting paper W-2s, employees can navigate to the Workforce W-2 tab and change their preferences.

Bitcoin buy, sell, hold capability in QuickBooks Online

Starting in mid-July, eligible QuickBooks Checking customers were given early access to the opportunity to buy, sell, and hold Bitcoin through their Cash Flow page in QuickBooks**. Now eligible customers can see their Bitcoin holdings, purchased with QuickBooks Checking, right in QuickBooks. We anticipate making this product available to additional QuickBooks Checking customers in the upcoming months.
