Integrated pivot tables in QuickBooks Online Advanced custom reports

In a nutshell: For the first time, pivot tables are now integrated in QuickBooks Online Advanced custom report builder. They provide summary data based on QuickBooks transactions.

With pivot tables, you can:

  • Extract meaningful information from your custom reports quickly and easily.
  • Increase speed and accuracy—no need to export data to a spreadsheet.
  • Analyze data across any category in custom reports.
  • Leverage enhanced reporting with the inclusion of summary reports.

How does it work? 

  • Starting with a custom report, select the pivot table button and choose the information you’d like summarized (rows, columns, and/or value).
  • A summary report based on the fields chosen will be created.
  • Toggle between the detailed report and pivot table, saving the report with the pivot table for future use.
