Can I create a purchase order In the QBO app?


Thanks for posting your concern, chris.

I can provide you with information about creating a purchase order in QuickBooks Online app.

At this time, you can create purchase order on a QuickBooks Online Desktop App, or by logging in to your account on a regular browser. While this feature isn't available on the mobile app, I encourage you to send feedback directly to our product developer.

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Choose Feedback.
  3. Enter your request/product suggestion, then click Next.
  4. Select Feedback as the Category.
  5. Click Send message.

They add new features based on suggestions from customers like yourself. Features and options will be implemented in the product in future product enhancement.

You may want to log in to your account using the browser and create a purchase order from there. To do that, make sure to enable the feature first by:

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Under Your Company, select Account and Settings (or Company Settings).
  3. In the left sidebar, select Expenses.
  4. Click the pencil icon next to Purchase orders.
  5. Check the Use Purchase Orders box.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Then, click Done.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
