Is there a customer's payments custom fields in quickbooks?

I want to input more information in a payment that I received, for example I want to write down:

* Date received

* Commission paid to vendor.

* Other notes relating to the check.


Currently, I can only write on the memo, but this is not very effective when it comes down to advance searches because suppose I want to perform a search of a check that was received on 6/12/19 or a search of a check that we already paid a commission to a sales representative.


I know that invoices allow for custom fields and organization of the invoice, but I don't know if we can do the same with a check.


Please help me out; I need to write down in a payment several pieces of information that will help me out perform advance searches and look for specific information on a report.
