add notes to recurring check or invoice that only quickbooks users can see - not customer or vendors

I would like to add internal notes to a recurring check or invoice that only the quickbooks users can see.  Example - I’d like to add an internal note to a recurring monthly check that says “land lease payment equals 10% revenue of property XYZ” or “add 5% to this payment starting November 2022”

I know there is the memo line, but I don’t want the customer to see these notes on the check if I forget to delete them. 


Hello there, Deanna.

You're right about using the Memo line in the transactions.

Entering notes, memos, or descriptions in your recurring transactions will be seen by everyone. If you'd like to add a restriction to hide them from your customers and vendors, you can send feedback to our developers. This lets them know how you'd like the program to work.

I'm always around if you have questions.

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.
