status bar no longer shows sent and not sent



There appears to be a recent change to the layout of quickbooks online and now the status bar no longer shows sent/ not sent for invoices.  Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hi there, murrcat.


I'll give steps where you can see the status information of the invoices.


Here's how:


  1. On the left panel, click Sales > Invoices.
  2. Click the invoice status under the Status column.
  3. Select the Invoice activity section to view if the invoice was sent or not.
  4. Hit the X icon to close or click the Edit invoice button to modify the invoice.

I've got this sample screenshot for a visual guide:



You can also see the status using the app. Feel free to read this article: Track the status of your invoices in the QuickBooks Online app.


If you have any follow-up questions or other concerns, please let me know by leaving a comment below. I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks.

Thank you for responding.  However this change to the software is not helpful and in fact is the opposite.  I would like it to be as before, where I am looking at the list of invoices, and in the status column, it says clearly and directly if it is sent or not sent.  You are now making me click on a separate button, select unpaid invoices and then I have to click on each individual invoice to see if it has been sent or not sent.  This is a huge productivity problem and has ruined this software for me. 


Please make it how it was before--sent or not sent is immediately visible without clicking on the individual invoice.


Thank you.
