Is there a way to search globally across all forum topics?
Yes, go to the Support tab up top and use the search box. That will search forum and blog posts as well as support articles.
That's a neat feature but I would really like to hear from users that use Quickbooks Desktop. I will post a question about that elsewhere in here. It is also nice to search the forum to ADD to an existing topic rather than create a new / redundant one.
Yep, we could put a search field in forums as well.
