The P.O. Number field on the invoices is too small (1 Merged Vote)

When I am creating an invoice, I put the P.O. Number from my client in the P.O. Number field; however it only allows for 12 characters....

Is there a way to increase the number of characters allowed?

    I have the same problem.

    There a memo entry that you can add to the invoice. It allows more characters. I use that for long PO numbers.

    Agree, this field is too small. A lot of Government based PO numbers will not fit within the field. Please increase to at least 18 digits.

    The Community Moderator just changed this message thread to an "Idea".

    Ideas are supposed to be brought to the attention of the programmers, for their consideration.

    So, please click the "Vote" button on the top right of this webpage to make your voice heard.

    Everyone, including the person who initiated this discussion …
    If you would like to see this enhancement made in a future version of Quicken please don't forget to vote on it. Locate the big blue (now yellow) box near the top of this webpage (or page 1 for long discussions) and click the "Up" triangle under the voting count.
    Wait a moment for the vote count to be registered and updated before you continue.
    The little triangle changes color when you have registered your vote.
    Adding extra comments helps, but does not automatically increment the vote count.

    Every vote counts!
    The more votes, the better the chances.

  • I can adjust the Purchase Order# box on the invoice template, but it limits the number of characters I can type in to (12) - Is there any way to increase this to something closer to (32) Characters?

    Even though there's only a small number of customers who voted for this change, I recommend this change be implemented in one of the next versions.
    Please pass word to the programmers for consideration.

    Everybody interested ... your vote counts. Please read my earlier (updated) post above about how to vote for this change.

    I came to this page to vote. It showed 3 votes. I clicked on the triangle and it went to 0 votes. I clicked again and it went to 1 vote, which is what I see now. Strange.

    • You can only vote once. If you have already voted and you click the triangle again, your vote is removed and the vote count is reduced by one. This works like a toggle switch: vote on, off, on again, off again ...
      Every time you vote, the triangle changes color.
    That's the way it should work. If the vote count resets from 3 to zero ... that sounds to me like a bug.
