Add-On Apps for QuickBooks Online
QuickBooks Online (QBO) doesn’t operate as a completely, stand-alone accounting solution. It has functional limitations. You can use Intuit add-ons to achieve more functionality in QBO. But those aren’t the only apps available for QBO; third-party developers have been creating apps to enhance the functionality of QBO. And, over time, you can expect more apps to be developed.
- You can click the Apps link in the Navigation bar that runs down the left side of QBO to visit the App Center and explore available apps.
- Click any app to navigate to a page that describes the app and provides pricing information.
- Although add-on apps can provide additional functionality in QBO, some functionality is still missing; no doubt, that functionality will appear over time. For example, using QBO, you can’t
- Track your balance sheet by class
- Process more than 350,000 transactions annually
- Prepare international transactions
- Track labor costs
- Manage a robust inventory
- Prepare and track progress invoices
- But apps are making inroads to eliminating these limitations.
