New Look and Feel

QuickBooks has a new look and feel to help you access your QuickBooks tasks more quickly and easily.  We've improved the top icon bar- you can use it to see transactions due, run reports, view balances and create shortcuts.  We've also improved the Home Page and QuickBooks Centres.  Easily view all the navigation changes by clicking the Help menu and selecting What's New.

Lead Centre

New for QuickBooks 2013!  It is used for tracking leads and sales prospects.  Typically a business will track prospects in one tool (ie. Microsoft CRM, Ace of Sales, etc) and do their books in a completely separate tool.  Having the Lead Centre in QuickBooks puts this information in one place instead of having multiple tools.

  • You can add prospects without adding customers
  • Leads can easily be removed if they don't become a sale
  • Adding a lead does not affect your current customer list.  Leads will only show up in the Lead Centre
  • Convert lead to a customer with a single click of a button
