Finally after a long wait, Quickbooks 2019 has been released on the 17 September 2018. This year, the Quickbooks desktop engineers have done a lot of work to improve the functionality and the workflow. Mentioned below are the major changes:
1: Moving the file to a different computer made simple:
Transferring the company file from one computer to the other is now a simple process. A new option under File-Utilities has been added by the name of “move quickbooks to another computer” and it will guide you to move your file from the old computer to the new one. It is a great feature for people who are not that tech savvy.
2: Online backup enhancement:
It is a great benefit for people using Intuit Data protect as a backup feature. The new messaging feature has been enhanced making it easier for customers to set up and have their data file backed up. The backup status also shows up on the right hand side of the screen along with a hyperlink to start the backup feature.
3: Data condense is lot easier:
This is a completely new feature in Quickbooks 2019 wherein you get 2 options to condense the file. You have the choice to either remove the Audit trail and keep all the history or remove certain transactions removing the history.
4: New changes have been made in IIF file Import:
Even though IIF import has been used extensively with QuickBooks Desktop, it has a history of file corruption resulting from improperly structured IIF files, formatting errors and a lack of error checking by QuickBooks during the import process. New to QuickBooks Desktop 2019, there is an improved IIF Import Functionality that provides SDK verification and validation routines during data import.
5: Sick time warning:
Quickbooks 2019 has been developed with a new feature wherein you get a warning message if your employee uses too much of sick time, this feature helps in decreasing the chances of human errors. (this feature is available for active payroll users only)
6: Invoice history:
This is a new feature and it gives a lot of flexibility to check the invoice details. This feature allows you to check the invoice creation date, invoice email date, viewed, payment & deposit date in one click. Quite a handy new tool.
7: Credits transfer for Customers and Jobs:
This is a huge time saver, this features allows you to apply credit Memos across all Jobs for a customer.
8:Check to Pay Bill:
This feature works when a client writes checks and bypasses the pay bill part of QuickBooks. QuickBooks will prompt and guide to link the check with an open bill if you are trying to write a check instead of bill payment check.
9: Quickbooks upgrade has been simplified:
You will be able to check this feature once Quickbooks 2020 is released. This feature enables you to search your old intuit account during upgrade and doesn’t let you create a new intuit account which was a great mess in the past.
