Why is quickbooks saying an active customer is innactive?

When i am trying to turn an estimate into an invoice, it won't let me save it because the customer is inactive, but when i checked to turn that customer active again it already said she was an active customer


Hi there, onthelevelron

I run some research and found out that there is an ongoing issue about this. Our engineers are still investigating the cause to come up with a fix. I’ll check with them frequently and get back to you once there are updates.

For now, I’d suggest reaching out to our phone support team to have your company details added on the list of affected users. You can get their updated phone number in this article: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1145770

You can reach me directly by adding a comment below if you have other concerns with QuickBooks.

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.
