QuickBooks Online March 2018 Updates:
Assign preferred Vendor/Supplier to the Products and Services List
Assign default Class codes to the Products and Services List
Quantity on Purchase Order (PO) column added to the Products and Services page
1) Assign preferred Vendor/Supplier to the Products and Services List
QBO (available in Plus plan only) will now see the field Preferred Vendor/Supplier when setting up Inventory Items under the Purchasing Information section. A preferred vendor is also available as an additional column that can be added to the Product and Service List report.
If you add a Preferred Vendor/Supplier to your Inventory Items, and you select Reorder from the Action column for that item, the Purchase Order will automatically populate with that Vendor name saving you an extra step.
2) Assign default Class codes to the Products and Services List
A new Class field (available in Plus plan only) has been added to the Items on your Product and Services List. You can see the Class field directly under Category when adding/editing items. Adding a Class to your Items will save you time when entering Sales transactions as well as Expense transactions using those Items as the Class will automatically be assigned. The Class field has also been added to the Product and Services List report and the Physical Inventory Worksheet report.
3) Quantity on Purchase Order (PO) column added to the Products and Services Page
Quantity on PO (available in Plus plan only) has now been added to the Products and Services page. You will see the field directly underneath the Reorder point field.
The Quantity on PO field is a static field and pulls its calculations from open item quantities on Purchase Orders for all dates (including those dated in the future). The PO can belong to different vendors, but must not be closed. Also, for partially received POs, the item on the detail line cannot be manually closed.

Mouse over tooltip, “Qty on PO” has been added to the QTY column of Sales and Purchases transaction forms. You will now know if quantities are on order at the time of the sale.
