  • We have several QB bookkeeping clients, some are nonprofit orgs — is there nonprofit accounting with WAVE? Additionally, how do we have an agency or consultant account with WAVE to manage books for clients? Is that doable? Perhaps I should add that as separate post?

  • I cannot figure out the merge function when related to transfers. My credit union posts the $2,000 mortgage amount due in my checking account and then our account pulls in money from our BMO Harris account to pay it. In my transactions, it looks like two payments. IN essence, the BMO Harris account is actually paying for the mortgage. In other wo…

  • We used to be able to see whether we had accounted for tax (VAT) on each transaction line. Now we have to open each transaction line to see whether tax on the transaction has been accounted for. Why was that removed? It makes no sense!

  • User Account Control (UAC) is basically a security feature of Windows that safeguards your system from making unauthorized changes. But, at times if the Windows User ACcount Control Settings are set to high then it might restrict you from QuickBooks Update. And thus, it puts the entire update process at halt and ends up with QuickBooks Error Code …

  • I have several people who make purchases for my company. What I love about [email protected] and the Receipt App is that as soon as the purchase is made, the purchaser can upload the receipt without fear of loosing the receipt. I have 6 people who purchase items and they immediately upload the receipt using the email or the app. Then I link t…

  • Hi, I would like to know if it is possible to unmatch a number of old transactions in bulk. I am new to the wave program, starting the year in 2020, and these transactions go back almost 7 years. Also, would be able to explain why I would have a bulk on transactions unmatched. Is this due to the account not being set up or synced correctly? Why wo…

  • I unintentionally clicked the "save" option within the Transactions page. Immediately after clicking "save", the transaction disappeared. Where is it now? What does "save" do?

  • Since we launched the ability to search by description earlier this year, we’ve had numerous requests to enhance this functionality to allow you to search by transaction amount. This functionality currently searches all transactions in your business currency. To search for a foreign currency amount you must first filter to that account, then s…

    hi! I am trying to enter an expense and having some difficulty with the new update for Transactions. Has Wave removed the field for entering comments/notes with the expense? I can't seem to find it. Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Hi, Since the new transaction update when I have transferred money from my savings account into my tax payment savings account it automatically did the corresponding journal entry in the tax payment savings account but it hasn't changed the "All Accounts" drop-down list to reflect the transfer amount that has been done. The amounts in e…

  • Is there a way for a customer to look up their account to see their balance or how much they have paid?
    Truth 14 views 1 comment Most recent by JulianP March 1, 2021 10:01PM
  • Good day, I wish Wave can make the reports smaller. The reports simply take too much space. A simple report normally prints on two pages, other accounting software would probably use half a page. The reports need to look more professional. These reports are shown to customers and suppliers and it does not look very good. Please remove the extra sp…

  • Hi. I have two businesses in Wave and realised that the new one has Settings > Payments > payments set to 'Wave Payments' instead of 'Cash on Hand'. I have adjusted that setting to the latter but how do I recover the money from the invoices that have been paid this week to the 'Wave Payments' setting (or will that happen automatically now th…

  • I am struggling to know how to report a software glitch. I am sure you are onto the big problems that arise because we never see them but small things my pass you by. Currently when I print an invoice it will also print by default a second blank page. Is this just me or do other people have this problem?

  • Previously, journal entry line items associated with sales tax accounts were assumed to be payments to the government. We've listened to your feedback that you need the ability to add journal entries to increase your sales tax collected to increase your liability, as well as the ability to increase your sales tax paid on on purchases. We're pleas…
