Item Title Above Description On Invoices

This is a rabbit hole I go down every year-or-so and the answer is always no but I figured I'd check-in and try again.

 

Is there any way to have the Item Title appear above the Item Description in an invoice in either Desktop or Online?

 

Below is an example of what I'm talking about.

Thanks in advance.

Hi mashby-

 

Yes, you can customize your invoices to have the item name above the description. 

 

In QBO go to Gear Icon>Under Your Company on the Left choose Custom Form Styles>Upper Right hand corner drop down choose Invoice>When the window opens choose Content in the bar between Design and Emails>click the pencil icon on the picture of the invoice to the right in the middle section>Check the box that says Include Description Here under the Product/Service category. It should look about like the picture you posted.

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks ~KatherineV

Greetings, mashby.

 

Thanks for being part of the QuickBooks family. I'll be sure to point you in the right direction for the item name to show above the item’s description.

 

At this time, there’s not a direct way of changing the Description field in QuickBooks Desktop. The good news is, there are third-party applications available that will help you enhance the look of your invoice.

 

The Intuit Marketplace is your one-stop-shop where you’ll find third-party software that is directly integrated with QuickBooks.

 

You can send request about adding more flexibility when customizing invoice templates. Your feedback helps our Product Development Team identify the features our customers want most and work toward improving the program.

 

To send your thoughts and suggestions:

  1. Go to Help at the top menu bar.
  2. Click on Send Feedback Online.
  3. Select Product Suggestion.
  4. Enter your feedback or feature request.

In additon to @KatherineV's answer, I also added link that will visually guide you on how to customize invoices in QuickBooks Online.

 

Feel free to let me know if you have additional questions about working in QuickBooks. I'm always around to lend a helping hand. Wishing you the best.

Re: Item Title Above Description On Invoices

@KatherineV -- Thank you so much! We're on the Desktop version now but we might be moving to QBO next year and this feature could be the tipping point for us making the switch. Great to know that the online version has this feature.
