QuickBooks Tip


Open Window List


The Open Windows List is ultimately a productivity booster. Not only will the open windows list let you see which and how many open windows you have, but easily lets you move back and forth between different tasks. Less clicks means less time wasted. To activate the Open Windows feature just go to the View menu and click Open Windows List. A grey column will open up on the left side of your QuickBooks and voilà!

-Excel Integration Refresh: Export reports to Excel, modify and manipulate worksheet formatting and seamlessly apply formatting updates to new reports.

-Contributed Reports: Search a library of more than 1,000 (and growing) custom, user-generated reports by industry, rating and popularity. Populate reports with QuickBooks data in just one click.

-Lead Center: Track prospective customers in one place, making follow up easy.

-Inventory Center: Centralize inventory tasks, items and reports for fast and easy access.

-Batch Timesheets: Create timesheets for multiple employees or vendors who work the same hours at once.

-One-click Transactions: Eliminate the need to re-enter customer data into different transaction forms.

-Batch Invoicing for Time and Expenses: Bill multiple customers at once for services rendered.



For Accountants...


-Accountant Center: Aggregate all accountant functions to make navigation easier and gain faster access to key accounting tools.

-Period Copy: Create a copy of a client's data file for a specific date range, making the file smaller and easier to send.

-Starter Copy: Save time setting up new clients by using an existing company file as a template with Create from an Existing Company File. Copy over company preferences, chart of accounts, sales tax items and codes.



And new inventory features in Advanced Iventory for QuickBooks Enterprise...


-Use FIFO Costing: Get the flexibility to track inventory using FIFO costing or average costing and switch between the two methods at any time.

-Track Serial Numbers or Lot Numbers: Enter serial numbers and lots at the time of purchase, transfer, or sale for more reliable tracking. You can track defective lots through assemblies and subassemblies, in stock on shelves, and customer purchases with new reports.

 -Track Inventory in Multiple Locations: For each location, you can see how many items are on hand, on sales order, on purchase order, and your reorder point... and QuickBooks will automatically calculate which items you need to restock.

-Flexibility to Set Up Various Types of Locations: In addition to tracking inventory in multiple warehouses, you can track it in different staging areas within a single warehouse, on service trucks, and on consignment. You can even track imported goods 'on the water.' 



Definitely this year brings major upgrades to QuickBooks!

Our New Home
We have a new office! 
We made the official move at the end of last month. As you can imagine, this is quite an exciting time for us. We're ready for this big step towards continuing to grow Mendelson Consulting into the future. 
With our recent expansion, we will be adding new services. Our most exciting addition is the training classes we will be offering in house (like we've mentioned, email us at for more info). Our new classroom will be an innovative learning environment. Schedules will be out soon. 
We are proud of how our new facility is turning out with our state of the art office space and our soon-to-be-opened classroom. We hope to see you soon at our new place!
