Accountants and Bookkeepers! Get the most out of your QuickBooks Online for Accountants experience with 3 hours of hot tips, cool tricks, and QBOA troubleshooting techniques.

QuickBooks Online for Accountants Course Description:

Three hours of QuickBooks Online for Accountants (QBOA) tips and tricks! Back door shortcuts, interface tricks, and accountant-only tools that allow you to cut your client work in half. Make more money for doing less by taking advantage of Alicia's tips that you may not discover on your own.

Many Accountants and Bookkeepers are making the move to QuickBooks®Online, but others aren't ready yet. The interface is different so it can be hard to find the features you need. This class will introduce you to QBOA, the version for Accountants. We’ll answer your questions, show you where to find your familiar tools, and introduce all the timesaving tips and tricks that make QBO®  easier to use than the desktop version.  

We’ll also explore the benefits that come with your free ProAdvisor account: practice management tools, certification training and exams, the Work Center for task management, and software discounts.
