I like the video very helpful.  Nice to see how the  PO moved into the client invoice. Also, less movement on the mouse helpful.

Hi FCTS .. I need some assistance on how to set finished goods inventory in quick books plus version.

On the dashboard you click sales go to product service and add the items. When you do that you need to click and add the opening quantity. When I click into the product service information and click starting value and add the quantity. There are two general ledger accounts , under the subheading inventory adjustment account should you click COGS or accounts payable

Is there a way to take the item details from a PO and add it to an invoice so that you do not have to type it all back in?

With our old system when you entered an invoice it automatically created a PO for those products you did not have in stock. Is there no such feature in QB online?

how do you account for sales tax in a purchase order? When I enter a bill I do not have the option to add sales tax when matching up a PO to bill. Also I need help receiving partial shipment on a PO.
