Last month we took a survey of what people liked most and least about QuickBooks. If you took the survey, thanks!
It is easy to summarize what people liked the most: More than half of the respondents said that they liked how easy QuickBooks is to use. Easy.
It’s a little harder to summarize what people didn’t like, so I’ll just list some categories of gripes:
- Password requirements. Several people complained about being forced to use passwords. Kinda like seatbelts, I guess
- Specific reporting limitations (e.g. Can’t print 1099-INT, G/L by class, no report totals)
- Limitations on doing one thing in QuickBooks when someone else is doing another thing
- Problems with crashes, freezes
- Limitations on inter-company data transfers (can’t automatically split a trans across companies)
- Limitations in functionality in QuickBooks Online compared to Desktop (e.g. backups, groups)
I can’t imagine anything relating to passwords ever reversing course and becoming more lenient until a new kind of security tech is distributed that makes the whole idea of passwords obsolete anyway.
A lot of those other things people complain about should improve over time.
Until then…ain’t QuickBooks easy?
Oh, one other thing. Almost no one complained about the price of the software itself. Nor did anyone commend the price of the software. Pricing perfection.
