My original comment was simply my feedback that the payment receipt that is sent to a client upon receipt of payment is incomplete because it doesn't show which invoices the payment was applied to. I know how to customize invoices and sales receipts. Quickbooks Online does not allow one to customize payment receipts. My comment was simply to add to all the other requests for an acceptable payment receipt. The current receipt is useless and unprofessional. It only serves to confuse the customer because it doesn't display HOW their payment was applied.
Thanks for sharing some clarifications, fsisinc.
