QuickBooks POS Custom Field Labels

You can specify custom field labels for the four item description fields in inventory (Inventory Name, Inventory Description, Size, and Attribute). The field labels you specify are displayed throughout the program, on printed documents, and on reports.

Default Labels: The default labels for new users are Item Name, Item Description, Size, and Attribute. Upgraders from earlier versions may have labels of Description 1 and Description 2 for the name and description fields. ClickRestore To Defaults at the bottom of the screen to return to the default field labels.

(Pro) You can also create and use custom fields on customer, vendor, item, and employee records. And, if you use Print Designer to customize your print templates, you can specify different labels for printed documents as well.
