In QuickBooks Online (QBO), at the top of the window, tools are available to help you find your way. You can view recent transactions or search for transactions, create transactions, or perform other actions not related to transactions. Be aware that, if you’re working in QBOA and you open a QBO company, the tools vary somewhat. The tools on this cheat sheet are for a client working in a QBO company.
