  3. be able to choose for an item to go into liability instead of sale or expense.

    We have to collect gratituity tips from customers and pay them out to workers but that money should be going into liability account not as income and i have to manually move it through journal entries and it's a pain. Most accounting programs let you add an item straight into liability.

  4. Deleting inactive items / items involved in transactions

    I have lot of inactive items in inventory and i dont want to keep these data. So it is better to provide provision to delete inactive items with transactions involved. In most accounting softwares during year ending, the items that are inactive can be removed evenif transaction are involved. Even if it cant be deleted, it is better to hide inactive items by default. Right now, while searching all inactive items are popped which is very frustrating. If the option is provided in Settings page, to hide all inactive itemsby default, it would be very helpful. I know, it is…

  5. Multiple Image Attachements on an Item

    Allow the attachment of Multiple Image Attachments on an Item. Sometimes Technical Drawings or multiple images need to be attached to an Item. Current functionality only allows for 1 Image to be attached to an Item.

  6. Have new facility for Item Groups

    We have products that are made up of multiple items, for example a "Promo Pack" might include :
    10 x Leaflets
    5 x Posters
    50 x booklets
    It would be good if we could create a new "item group" that included could include multiple line items in predefined quantities that way we could add these groups with a single selection rather than having to enter each individual line.

  8. Allow Supplier Item Pricing in a Different Curency

    I distribute products from suppliers arounmd the world. Their price lists are not in my base but their local currency - USD, JPY, EUR etc.

    I need to be able to enter supplier currencies for each item. At the moment their prices have to be converted into the base currency. This means that when a Purchase Order is created in their currency the pr9ices are always wrong (as exchange rates change) resulting in me having to manually update each price from a paper price list.

    This wastes a lot of time and could be avoided.

  9. Export items by category and/or item search

    We desperately need the ability to export any item at any time without exporting the entire list of items. In other words, we need to be able to isolate the item exported by category sometimes and other times by search results.

    For example, if I search blower pulley...then the only items that should come up to be exported are blower pulleys. This will allow me to more quickly reset pricing and/or shift information without having to extrapolate out of a master spreadsheet.

    Also, we need to be able to export only individual categories. A simple drop down to export by…

  11. Assign items to a vendor

    Assign purchased items to a vendor. The purchase information can be entered for an item, but the vendor field is not visible. When the items are exported, the field is in the export.

  12. Item PDF attachment & Order Revision Freeze

    Greetings,

    I would like to add a .pdf or .dxf/.dwg attachemnt to specific items
    This would contain the 2D drawings for this item or the dxf aka 2D flat layout for laser cuttings for example.

    And a way to freeze the item if it's undergoing a 3D/2D model update/change, so it cannot be ordered while it's being altered.

    This would be handy for ordering repeating custom parts without our engineering having to send the files afterwords in a seperate mail on each purchase order.

  16. Item Details - View Quantity Purchased

    When viewing an item details, under the purchases tab, it shows the PO#, Vendor, Expected Delivery Date, but DOES NOT show quantity purchased. This is a very important detail that is missing.

    EX: Item > Item Details > Purchases
    DATE - PURCHASE ORDER # - VENDOR NAME - STATUS - EXPECTED DELIVERY DATE - AMOUNT

    Quantity Purchased is MISSING!!!

  18. zoho books items linked to vendor portal for instant purchase price and MSRP sync

    I would like to see an integration between zoho books items and vendor portal (example, ingram micro). Since prices of hardware and software tend to change from time to time, it would be nice if item prices sync with the vendor. The two main fields would be purchase price and selling price based on item vendor info. We have tested quotewerks that has the ability to sync items with multiple vendors.

  20. Option to add a web link to an item

    It would be great feature to have the option of adding a web link when creating any item. Since most invoicing has now become web based with very little printing, it would be useful to allow the customer to click on the item name and then be directed to any web page. This web page could be anything, you tube video of how to use the product, google drive folder with all brochures, MSD Sheets, warranties etc or even just single pdf brochures.

    I am sure customers will love such interactive invoices in a world where everyone just hates the…
