  1. Enable addition of project field in invoices.

    Add ability to pick a project on sales invoice and bills. Not just raise an invoice by going through timesheet mode.
    If you have a batch of expenses/bills to add, you have to keep chasing timesheet, project name, raise expense. This could be improved by the addition of a project field in the main invoice/bill templates.

        • Transaction Description Search

          When trying to reconcile many transactions (such as when you have imported a bank statement) you may have many transactions from or to the same place i.e. suppliers or customers.

          A very simple, but vital requirement would be to just be able to search the transaction 'Description'. Currently, (using the advanced search) you can only search the 'Reference', but in the UK (for example) they do not provide a reference, only a description, therefore you have to manual go through each of the entries and locate the same ones which takes forever.

          Strangely, using the search option at the top…

                  • Integrate more payment gateways like CC Avenue, Payfort and more

                    It's getting real costly! All your payment providers support only US transactions. This means more costs for us. We would really appreciate if you can integrate payment providers from the Middle East or even India. This could help a lot of us.

                    • Report > Account Transaction > To add Description next to Transaction Details

                      This feature allow user to see the description of transactions. For example, a transaction was committed to account "Repairs and Maintenance" but need to show more information for this transaction like it was a renovation the office or air conditioner maintenance.

                      This helps user to track & match the details of transactions with local records on PC.

                        You might know that Switzerland is moving towards ISO 20022. Recently, some local Swiss Banks provided CAMT.053 which is working perfectly fine in ZBooks. Now, as a next step, old Swiss pay slip (Einzahlungsschein) is moving towards QR-Invoice.

                        • I want a report that totals expenditure on a project

                          I can see how much money I have invoiced on a project but I can not see how much money has been spent. This is basic project budget tracking and should be a feature on the software.
                          Not adding this will make me move my accounts elsewhere.

                          • Printing of Vouchers

                            Generally in accounting packages you can print vouchers. Payment Voucher / Receipt Voucher etc. This also has the signature of the person approving the payment and any second signature for checking, and receiving (if payment). This is then filed physically in the files for audit along with supporting documents. Normally auditors look at physical vouchers.

                            Right now we will need to print vouchers manually from Excel or use preprinted vouchers. This is an old accounting this but still needed for audit and tax purposes.

                            • Ability to Send Requests for Quotes

                              It would be really nice if I could send Requests for Quote on items that I need built. That way I can always get the best price without having to email and manage bunch of people/inconsistent responses.

                              This would be under:
                              Purchases
                              - Expenses
                              - Recurring Expenses
                              - Request for Quote
                              - Purchase orders

                              The template would be similar to a PO. It would just pull in my vendor contacts and my vendor part#. Then all I would need to do is attach a drawing then send it to a group of vendors. They could email me bids. Then when…

                              • Send customers Sales Orders via the client portal

                                Currently you can send sales invoices and estimates through the Client Portal. Could you make it possible to send Sales Orders through the Portal and give them an acceptance button as with Estimates?

                                Client has developed integration through CRM and the ability to generate Sales Orders in CRM to be transferred to Books and if the client had the ability to see and accept through the portal this could make life very easy.

                                Thank you

                                • Items - Multi Currency Purchase Rates ?

                                  Hi,

                                  We do International Trading and buy products in multi currencies. However the Items purchase rate is fixed as per company's base currencies and this does not suit us. This results in a false value to our stock and affects all our reporting.

                                  Even if we convert the purchase rate into the base currency, this rate will never be accurate unless it's updated on a daily rate basis. This is not even an option.

                                  Rates in Exchange
                                  Where can we input the rates or exchanges on a daily basis on Zoho?

                                    • Price breaks by quantity

                                      Add the ability to set pricing based on quantity sold. Example:

                                      If I sell one item the price is $10 / item, if I sell 10 of these items the price become $8 / item.

                                        • Invoice Print in (POS) Ticket Style or Layout

                                          Need to print invoices in a ticket printer like EPSON TMU220 or similar (POS PRINTER) but to do it, we need a new style or layout of invoice that fits in a ticket paper and print, I think that will be a very usefull I and also very nature friendly because we spend less paper and tonner.
