The option to add a custom field for the customers order number is not available on this set of books. Why not?


Hello there, johan,

You can add the Order Number field by customizing your sales form content. Let me show you how.

  1. Go to the Gear icon, then choose Account and Settings.
  2. Select the Sales tab.
  3. Click anywhere in the Sales form content section.
  4. Under Custom fields Name, input Order Name.
  5. Put a checkmark below the Internal column for the new field.
  6. Click Save, then Done.

Once completed, the Order Number field will now appear on your sales forms. Please note that if nothing is entered in the field on a specific form, the field will not print.

I've attached screenshots below for your reference. You can also check out this article for the detailed steps and further information: How to Add Custom Fields to Invoices.

That should do it. Please let me know if you have other concerns about customizing forms in QuickBooks. I'm just around if you need help.

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.
