autofill memo field general journal entry.for QB 2017 desktop? I could do it for QB does not allow me to have this option under my preferences for accounting

Hi, For an earlier 2013 QB desktop version under edit preferences, accounting tab, then my preferences tab, there is an option one can check off which states "autofill memo in general journal entry", I now have QB 2017 desktop. Is there anyway to have this option for my 2017 version?  Thanks, Dean

You're a keen observer, dean.

As much as we'd love to add the Autofill memo in general journal entry feature back in QuickBooks Desktop 2017, but we can't. I encourage you to send your feedback straight to our development team to let them know you want this feature back in QuickBooks Desktop 2017. Just click Help menu at the top, and select Send Feedback Online.

If you have other concerns that I can help you with, please let me know.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
