how do I get the products on my invoices to be automatic when I type in a customer name?

how do I get the products on my invoices to be automatic when I type in a customer name?  I already have the customer's details, but when I create a new invoice for a specific customer I don't want to have to input all the products.  Is there away to hit new invoice, click on the specific customer and then edit the products that come up.  (QB 2007 allowed me to do something similar)


If you switch on "Pre-fill forms with previously entered content" in Settings/Advanced, then QBO is supposed to "automatically fill other fields of the form, based on the last saved transaction for that customer, vendor, or employee."

But I don't think it works on invoices. You can use the recurring transactions feature though.  Or pull up the last invoice and copy it.

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.
