It's good to have you post in the Community. I'll be happy to help with sharing info about searching using just the invoice number.
Just for reference purposes, here are the steps to searching for transactions in QBO:
To make the search easier, you can search up the invoices associated with that customer searching using the customer's name:
Search by Customer Name
If you're still having issues with searching. I recommend clearing cache and cookies on your browser. Doing this will help fix most issues the site may be having. Give this a try and let me know what happens.
Thanks for responding but you didn't actually answer my question. I know how to search transactions, I just want to be able to enter an invoice # from the sales page and have it pop up. Even if I could enter it in the filter box, but it doesn't seem to have that option. It requires scrolling down my long list to find the invoice every time. There should be an option to just enter the invoice #.
I see what you're saying. At this time, you can only search for transactions using the transaction number or date.
