    This seems to be very useful information; almost all of the features have been covered. One of the annoying issues with QuickBooks faced earlier that you can have loads of transactions that have Email later box checked, even when not required to send some of those transactions — has been simplified. This issue has been cleared as in one step; multiple transactions can be removed from the list.
