What do I do? next up invoice is showing 386 when it should be 388. How do I deal with it? just manually change it or will it keep recurring?

I can help arrange the sequence of your invoice number, jodivin.

 

Let's fix this my updating the settings for your transactions number sequence. Below are the steps on how to customize transaction numbers:

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon and choose Account and Settings.
  2. Select the Sales tab, Then, Sales Form Content section.
  3. Set the Custom Transaction Numbers to On.

  4. Click Save and then Done.

Once done, you can try creating an invoice and assign the correct number which is 388. After this, the sequence will continue when you create your next invoice.

 

Here's how:

  1. Click the Plus (+) icon and select Invoice.
  2. Assign the first number of your new sequence in the Invoice no. field.
  3. Select Save and close. Beginning with your next Invoice, the counter will start on the immediately following number.

To review all your invoices, you'll want to run the Invoice List report. I'll show you how to do it:

 

  1. Go to Reports.
  2. Enter Invoice List on the search field.
  3. Customize the necessary filters.
  4. Click Run report.
