Can't figure out how to turn Projects on in QBs and also currency is wrong (JPY has no decimal points).


Hi amor_cadmakers.c,

As of the moment, Project feature is not available yet in QuickBooks Online International version. 

What you can do instead is to set up your jobs as sub-customers and select Bill with Parent option. Once you've set up your job/project as a sub-customer, you can then use the billable expense feature.

Also, you can change the number format in QuickBooks Online. To do that: 

  1. Click on the Gear icon and select Account and Settings.
  2. Click Advanced, then go to Other preferences section.
  3. Select Number format on the drop-down menu.
  4. Click Save.

If you would like to have the Project feature be available on the international version of QBO, we would appreciate if you can send your feedback. That helps our product engineers determine what features we need to add. To send your feedback, click on the Gear icon and select Feedback

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.
