Invoice numbers with customer name

I imported from the desktop Mac version of Quickbooks to the online version.  My highest invoice number is 2803, but when I create new invoices now the numbers are starting at 1000.  I want the invoice numbers to auto increment up from 2803.  I can't find a setting that would do this.  I have custom transaction numbers turned in Settings -> Sales.

Invoice numbers with customer name

Hello there, @nodakjones.


Thanks for choosing QuickBooks Online. I can share some information on how to auto increment the invoice number.


QuickBooks has a sticky setting feature where it will remember the previous information and continue to use that unless you change it. You'll just have to create an invoice and change the Invoice no. to 2803. After saving it, the next invoice you will create will have the 2804 number.


There you have it. Drop me a comment below if you have any other questions about changing the invoice number.  I'll be happy to assist you further.
