  1. Payroll Options

    Would like to see a payroll service implemented; Maybe not a true payroll but at least the ability of tracking payments to employees without making them a vendor.

    Hey,

    The Budgeting feature is live now. You can plan for the upcoming financial periods by creating budgets and evaluate your business performance. 

    To know more about this feature, check out our:

    Blog: https://www.zoho.com/financeplus/blog/budgets-in-zoho-books.html
    Help Document: https://www.zoho.com/books/help/accountant/budgets.html

    If you need any further assistance feel free to reach out to us at support@zohobooks.com.

  4. Profit Margin

    Include a way to show the profit margin for each item as it added to estimates as well as show the total profit margin near the total for the estimate. The profit margin should be dynamic in a way so that you could adjust your price and see the change in the item margin and total margin for the estimate. This would also work for invoices. Of course this would only be viewable to the business side.

  5. Invoice numbering per client

    When you have clients billed on a regular basis it's very important to maintain automatic invoice numbering per client rather than across multiple clients.

    It makes it easier to reconcile with clients in case some of the invoices went missing.

    Additionally, it makes it impossible for a client to guess the size of your company by guessing how many invoices you create each month.

  7. Include proforma invoice

    Please create proforma invoice link to enable a user to create a PI.

    While taking out the reports like sales or P&L, then allow the user to either select PI or de-select PI for report generation.

    Also allow the user to generate invoice based on the Proforma Created. This feature is almost simalar to Estimates.

    Hi there,

    We now have a Zoho Inventory Add on option for Zoho Books. You can take a look at that. You can achieve a lot of these features using Zoho Inventory.

    Regarding your requirements,

    1- You can use the backtracking option to achieve this in Zoho Inventory. https://www.zoho.com/in/inventory/kb/sales-order/so-back-order.html

    2- We have default shipping status based on the carrier in Zoho Inventory
    You can refer this link – https://www.zoho.com/in/inventory/help/sales-orders/shipments.html

    3- You can use the custom function feature to calculate the sales commission.

    4- sales profile and commission rate linked to different items – We currently do not have this option

    5 – search of the items should be enhanced – For queries on this you can send us an email at support@zohobooks.com

    6- We are working on item category in Zoho Inventory and will definitely update you.

    If you have any further questions you can write to support@zohobooks.com

  10. item search

    Would be nice if you can include a comprehensive search feature for Items specially. Example the items should be searchable with any word in the item description

  11. Cashflow forecasting Reports

    Is it possible to add some forecasting reports so we can get a picture of future months & years based on existing data within Zoho Books?

    There would be the option to select which data such as recurring Invoices or Expenses or budgets are included in the Cashflow forecast (or Projection) report?

    I'm new to using Zoho books but would like accounting software which allows a future look at the business.

    Ideally the report would also allow us to
    Define if we want to include
    Only certain aspects of the business such as certain customers.

    As an example elsewhere I've…

  13. For me it would be perfect if i could customize my dashboard. For example, i don't need report for billable hours and i would replace it.

  14. Asset register

    Need an asset register to hold all assets that can be depreciated and accommodate depreciation calculation as well. This would Zoho Books on a par with the more well know competitors.

  18. Allow child/parent contacts

    Many large organisations have one financial office that pays the bills with many departments/subsidiaries that place the orders and take delivery. So it would be useful to be able to have a parent contact with multiple children. Quickbooks does this.

  20. Link SO, Invoice & POs with a common value

    Linking Sales orders, invoices and purchase orders would enable easy tracking of the transactions between all three.

    We'd like to see one common value that links all there and can be used as reference # for invoice and PO at the same time. This common value can be used by the "organization" to track related transactions between customers and vendors
