Customers and jobs

In QuickBooks, a customer is anyone who pays you for goods or services. A job is a specific project or scope of work that you want to track. The Customer Center gives you access to information about all of your customers and jobs and their associated transactions in one place.

Here you can quickly find customer contact information, what your customers bought in the past, what invoices they’ve paid, the balance they owe, notes you want to keep about them, and more. You can also quickly access transactions such as sales receipts, received payments, and statement charges.
