Does QB Desktop POS Pro 18 support the ability to bypass the "Add as a new item" when doing a sale?

We carry temporary items that we do not want to enter as permanent items.  The price varies on these items as well.



You make a Generic item. No one ever stated to add every unique item by Name.

Examples: Service item = "What we did" or "labor"

Noninvenytory = "Stuff" or "Materials."

Please see my attachments for Appliances and Roofing and Countertops and Flooring = generic, but with some clarity I like to see and use in my Reporting and management of purchases and sales.

The same is true for generic Payee. You don't need every store in the country as Vendor. Even Staples never sends you a Bill to pay later and is not subject to 1099. "Parking" and Staples and "USPS" are generic Names List entries.

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.
