How to turn auto generated "Other" job into a regular named job for a customer?

Hi,

I have a few invoices created for a customer before I added the first job (named job) for that customer. Now every time I run a quick report, those invoices are associated with a job called "Other." 

 

Is there any way to turn this "Other" job into a regular job, meaning I get to name it and separate it out, so it is kinda a parallel to my other jobs I have created for this customer?

 

Thanks

It’s great to see you in the Community, JTCBM.     

        
The Other section will show on the report when you select the job on the invoice instead of the customer’s name (Customer: Job field). To turn the auto-generated "Other" into a regular job is unavailable at this time.


The transactions under the Other section indicate that they’re from the parent customer. While customer jobs are listed separately for easy tracking.


For future reference, check out the Tracking job costs in QuickBooks Desktop article. It provides an overview of how to assign all your expenses to jobs as well as steps to run job costing reports.

 

Let me know if you need further assistance while working in QuickBooks. I'll be right here to help and make sure you're taken care of. Have a good one.
