Resolution for Issue 'I’m in the process of moving from QB desktop to Simple Start Online. We invoice customers both in the US and overseas and dates are interpreted differently depending on the country. (Eg. 3/10/2018 could be March 10 or October 3). In the desktop version I could simply key a date as needed. This applies to invoice date as well as the order date. Every line item contains an order date. I use a format of “3 Oct 2018”, for example. On the desktop I could customize the invoice to use a text column and just call it “Date” for the line items. I don’t see a way to do this in the online version. Am I missing something? Thank you. John C' available: Yes (Solved).
