Not enough Inventory custom field labels for Items in POS

In the My Field Labels located in Company Preferences of Point of Sale, there are 7 extra Custom Field Labels for Customers, Vendors and Employees. There are only 5 available for Inventory Items. I need to add another Custom Field Label because we need that info for our tags we print for our Items. Is there any way to do this?? Why are there only 5?

It's nice to see you here in the Community, @Carvin625.

 

I've got some insights to provide about the available custom fields that you can use in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

The Custom Field Labels for Customers, Vendors, and Employees allows you have up to 7 more fields. For items, this only allows you to have 5 custom fields if you're using the Pro and Premier version while 15 fields for Enterprise.

 

For more details about the maximum limits of the lists and fields in QuickBooks Desktop, please see this link: Learn about the maximum number of list entries you can make in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

I can see the importance of adding more custom fields for items to cope with the information you're going to add. I'd encourage you to submit this preference to developers, so this will be taken into consideration.

 

To do that:

  1. Click on Help at the top.
  2. Select on Send Feedback Online.
  3. Enter your product suggestion.

You can also visit our Firm of the Future site, to be updated with our latest news and product road-maps. 

 

 

Let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance with this topic. I'll be right here to provide additional help any time. Have a nice day!

I marked this as solved but realized after that you were talking about Quickbooks Desktop Enterprise. We actually do have that but I was asking about Custom Field Labels in Quickbooks Point of Sale.

The maximum number of custom fields you can use within QuickBooks Point of Sale (POS) is the same as what you stated, @Carvin625.

 

So it's the same as what my peer @BettyJaneB suggested, you can submit feedback for this situation from within QuickBooks Desktop.

 

In case you missed the steps, here's how:

  1. Go to the Help menu.
  2. Select Send Feedback Online.
  3. Type in your product suggestion. 

Feel free to be as detailed as you'd like, so our product engineers know what feature you need.
