I would like to custom label each invoice number myself for multiple clients and track each client. Files for each client with individual invoices together and totals.

Invoices should be able to be customized for each regular client billed. How can I change them?


Hi there, lswedell,

Let me share some information about customizing labels on invoices.

If you are using the mobile app, I suggest switching to your web browser since this selection is not available in mobile preference. First, you need to set your own numbering preference in your invoices, by turning on your Custom transaction numbers feature.

Here’s how:

  1. Select the Gear icon, then Account and Settings
  2. Select Sales, then click anywhere within the Sales form content section.  
  3. Check the box next to Custom transaction numbers.  
  4. Select Save and then Done
  5. Open an invoice or any sales form, and in the Invoice no.

I’ve attached an article in case you need reference on how to: Change the number on invoices and other sales forms.

Then you can open the Transaction List by Customer Report and customize it to find the tracking number.

Here's how to customize the report:

  1. Go to Reports on the left panel.
  2. Enter Transaction List by Customer in the search field.
  3. Click the Customize tab at the top.
  4. Under Filter, click the drop-down for Transaction type and select Invoice.
  5. Click Run Report.
  6. Click the Gear icon at the upper-right hand.
  7. Check the box for Num.

I've attached screenshots to walk you through the steps.

That's it! Let me know how it goes. Fill me in if you have other concerns about customizing labels on invoices, I’m always here to help. Have an awesome day!

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.
