I want to add "Previously Paid, per say) in Progress invoice column. I can type it in but it won't calculate from Original Estimate. Do I check in COLUMN or PROG COLS?

I would appreciate any help, thanks!

I'm glad you reached out to us, LCW1.

 

You can add a Previously Paid column on your progress invoice template. However, you'll need to manually enter the amount from there.

 

 

I know that you already had a grasp on how to add columns to transactions but you can still have this article as your reference: Create and use custom fields in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

It's good to have this automatic calculation feature for previously paid invoice in QuickBooks Desktop. That said, I'll be sure to relay your idea to our product developers for consideration in future updates.

 

For now, I encourage you to check our QuickBooks New Features to be updated of the latest product enhancements.

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to Help.
  2. Click New Features.
  3. You can either choose New Feature Tour or What's New.

I also suggest you regularly check out our most recent product updates through this link: https://www.firmofthefuture.com/product-industry-news/product-updates/.

 

Let me know if you have additional questions or clarifications. I'm always here to help. Have a good one.

Charie,

Thank you so much for the info on What's New; didn't know it was there.  Also, thanks for the compliment on my question going forward - LOL.

Enjoy your day,
