While this new Check Number feature isn't a 'show stopper', it does illustrate that QBO developers are thinking of new and innovative ways for bookkeepers, accountants and do-it-yourself small business owners to capture details in their accounting system.
For small business owners who are still occasionally issuing handwritten checks, this is a great feature to incorporate check numbers efficiently using one screen. Another bonus of this new functionality, once you activate the feature it will appear each time you view bank feeds.
To make the 'new' Check Number feature available:
Start from Transactions > Banking > Table Gear > Check No. (check the field in the 'Columns' list) – now you can edit checks numbers whenever necessary.
