Thank you for joining the Community. Allow me to help share some information why you're unable to view the inactive customers.
We've received an update from our engineering team that this is an ongoing issue. They’re continuing to investigate the cause so they can come up with the fix for this unexpected behavior. In the meantime, you can manually find customers in the list until we fully resolve this for you.
I also suggest calling our phone support to add your company details to the affected users' list. This will also sign you up to receive email updates as soon as they become available.
When I try to view the inactive customers they are not showing up when I choose the view inactive clients button. Done this a million times, not working now.
I don’t want you to feel this way, @kim. I understand how important your time is.
I’m here to ensure you get back in working order. Let’s go to the Customers tab in your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account and include your inactive clients to the list. I’d be glad to walk you through the steps.
In your QBO account:
Go to the Sales menu and select the Customers tab.
Click the Gear icon inside the customer list.
Select Include inactive.
If the issue persists, let’s perform some troubleshooting steps to isolate this issue. I suggest accessing your QBO account on a private or incognito window and include your inactive clients from there.
You can follow these keyboard shortcuts in opening a private or incognito window base on the browser you’re using:
If you’re using the Google Chrome browser, press keyboard keys: Ctrl + Shift + N
For Mozilla Firefox browser, press keys: Ctrl + Shift + P
For Safari browser, press keys: Command + Option + P
If you’re able to see your inactive clients in a private window, then we’ll need to clear your regular browser’s cache. Stored cache for a while causes uncommon behavior to your browser that affects your QBO performance. Deleting it is fixes the issue and refresh your browser.
If the same issue occurs, I recommend using other supported browsers. This way, we can check if this is a browser integrated issue.
Additionally, in case you have duplicate customer, you can merge them to avoid confusion. I got you this article that you can use for reference. Check the Merge customers section for the detailed steps: Manage your customer list.
Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with on managing your customers in QBO. It’s my priority to keep you in working order. Keep safe.
