What else can QuickBooks do, you ask? TONS!!! Staying on the General section, we are going to discuss the annoying beep option. On the My Preferences Tab, three down on the left, QuickBooks gives you the option to beep when recording a transaction. If you are in QuickBooks all day long entering transactions, this will get annoying, or you will learn to ignore it. However, if you have other people in your office, they might lose their mind. Therefore, I suggest turning this preference off. It’ll make everyone happier!!
Staying on the same screen, another preference I think saves time is to Automatically Place Decimal Point. I find this feature to be very helpful. The only thing to remember is if you have an even transaction ending in .00, you’ll need to either place the decimal point, or enter the zeros.
To save time in trying to figure out mistakes, I recommend marking the box Warn When Editing a Transaction. This is an internal control that makes you double check yourself before you edit something.
These are just suggestions, everyone has their own preference. Keep checking back for more tips & tricks!
