Average Days to Pay Now Available in QuickBooks 2011

One of the many new features in QuickBooks 2011 is the ability to see the average days to pay for each of your customers.

Never before available, the average days to pay sits right inside the new Customer Snapshot tab within the Company Snapshot section of QuickBooks (click Company > Company Snapshot to access).

The screen shot below provides a glimpse of what the "Customer Snapshot" window looks like (click the image for a larger view):

Average Days to Pay

On the left hand side of this screen you will find:

  • Number of years as a customer
  • Average days to pay
  • Open balance
  • Credit limit

In other areas of the Customer Snapshot, you can easily view:

  • A sales summary for different date ranges
  • Recent invoices
  • Recent payments
  • Year over year sales history
  • Best selling items

It's easy to jump from one customer to another while in this window. Just click the Customer drop down list at the top of the screen for instant access to your entire customer list.

The 2011 edition of QuickBooks is really packed with a lot of new features and functionality. If you are considering an upgrade, remember that your current QuickBooks data transfers easily into a new version.




How Do I Eliminate the Cents From My QuickBooks Reports?

So the boss asked you to reprint the company profit and loss report for the year, but asked that you not include the cents on it.

What do you do now?

Simple - tell the boss you'll have the report to them in just a moment!


To accomplish this for the profit and loss report (or any report in QuickBooks for that matter), here is what you need to do:

  • Run the desired report
  • Click the Modify Report button in the upper left hand corner of the report screen
  • Click the Fonts and Numbers tab across the top of the window, and a screen like this will appear:
    Removing Cents from QuickBooks Reports
  • Just click on the Without Cents option and then click OK

Finish printing the report and you're all set!
