What Are Management Reports?
To clarify, Management Reports are “books” of user-defined, presentation-quality, customized reports. For example, these reports can contain cover pages, tables of contents, financial statements, operational information, compilation reports, and even management discussion and analysis commentaries. You can use any of the three pre-built Management Reports available in QuickBooks Online, or you can customize them to meet your needs and save them for future use. Further, you can distribute your management reports directly from within QuickBooks Online, save them as PDFs, or export them as Word documents for further editing.
Accessing QuickBooks Online Management Reports
If the report is suitable, can click Send, Export as PDF, or Export as DOCX in the Action column’s drop-down list. Then you can send it via email, export it to a PDF file or DOCX file, or share it using other means.
