The budget function won’t open

I am trying to open the budget function, screen stays the same


Welcome to the Intuit Community, toni

I’ll help ensure that you’re able to create the budget report in QuickBooks Online (QBO).

Here are the possible reasons why the report screen stays the same and it won’t open:

  • The browser’s cache is full
  • The browser’s pop-ups are disabled

To help fix this, let’s use an incognito/private browser since it doesn’t store data in the cache and it helps isolate the issue. Please follow the keyboard shortcuts below to open a private browser.

  • Google Chrome: press Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Safari: press Command + Shift +N
  • Internet Explorer: press Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Mozilla Firefox: press Ctrl + Shift + P

If the private browser works, let’s clear the cache and temporary internet files in your regular browser.

After that, let’s enable pop-ups for QBO. By doing so, it helps the website to work properly since it doesn’t contain ads or spam. 

Once done, you’ll have to log back in to your QBO account. Then, let’s add your budget report if it works.

Keep in touch with me after performing the steps above, toni. If you need anything else, please let me know. I’m always here to help you out. Cheers!

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.
