QuickBooks 2012 – Images on items

For those of you who may not already know, QuickBooks software 2012 is Coming! QuickBooks 2012 contains a significant number of new features, as well as improvements to existing ones.  Today, I would like to tell you about an Enterprise Solutions specific new feature – Images on Items!

How many times have you had a customer call and ask for a picture of an item, or to ask you what an item looks like?  If that has ever happened to you, you would have gone to some other data base to get a picture and send it to the customer.  Better yet, what happens when you get an order for an item and your warehouse guy goes to pull it but is not 100% sure what he is looking for?

With QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions 2012, you can now assign images to items in the new Inventory Center.  Intuit has made it so easy too.  You can literally just drag and drop the picture into the item and that’s it!  No uploading time or anything.  Now, if someone asks, you can just open up the Inventory Center, go to the item and the picture is sitting there clear as day.  It’s nicely sized as well.  Check out this screen shot —


Here is the bad news… As we can tell so far, there doesn’t seem to be a way to use that image on any transactions in QuickBooks.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have the picture of the item on an Estimate for your customer?  Well, maybe that’s asking a little too much – for this year anyway.

Be sure to check back often over the next few weeks, as we will be sharing posts on all the new and improved features of QuickBooks 2012.

      Hi Mattie

      Unfortunately we don’t don’t have a copy of the UK version to be able to answer this question and Intuit’s site is not very helpful on this matter. Sorry we couldn’t help on this one.
