Feature Request: Input check number on invoices

ngilsonngilson Member Posts: 62 ✭

We've just transitioned from On-Site, and are discovering that there is not a way to input the check number when this is the payment method. I know that we could input this in the notes of the invoice, but it seems like a pretty basic function of a POS system to require the check number.

I had a perfect example today on why this is needed. Customer who has a regular and recurring order inquired if their payment with check number XXXX has been received, as they mailed it nearly two weeks ago. I can see that we applied a payment about a week ago, but because there is no check number I have no idea if it's the one they are inquiring about.

Adding this feature would also significantly help in balancing our checks when we make a deposit, provided of course that the check numbers are visible in that report.

    I agree and require this feature as well.

    I second this. This is very important. We have the same issue with a custom payment type "Budget Number". Our Departments pay with a budget number but when we click "Pay", there is no place to record the budget number. This is the same for checks. If you are paying with a check you should be able to record the check number.
