Transaction reference numbers help you easily identify transactions. QBO will automatically assign transaction numbers in sequence. But if you want to change the starting custom transaction number of your own, you can do so. You would want to turn the company settings ON once, assign a custom number and turn it OFF again so that QBO can identify number sequence based on the last transaction number.
A separate number sequence appears on:
For Statements, QBO will automatically control the numbers that reference identify so you can’t change it.
QBO lets you customize your transaction numbers.

It will show as viewed whoever viewed it (primary or cc). If it’s viewed by both it will show as viewed twice.
Viewed Status Icon: If you open sales transactions (left navigation bar > transactions > sales) under status column, it will show many have opened the invoice and viewed it. It will show one black icon if viewed by one person or two black icons if viewed by both. See attached screenshot.
(Note: In case, you do not see Status column and need to add, go to middle Gear at the far right and select show more and add status column).
Invoice Activities: Open the invoice in question from the sales transactions or directly from customer center. Under activities (below invoice balance due, next in line to attachments), it will show invoice viewed with date and time record.

This has to do with reflecting accurate direct expenses related to customers on Income by Customer Report.
If you are depositing a vendor/supplier refund for an expense that was previously Billed to a customer, select “Track returns for customers” box and choose that same customer on the deposit and mark it Billable.
For example, if you buy a material for a customer’s job, you would bill the expense to the customer. But if the customer later returns the material to you and you return it to the vendor/supplier for a refund that you are depositing, you need to mark the deposit billable to that same customer and also select “Track returns for customers” box. Otherwise, it will show as customer billed for the material expense, and the vendor credit will not appear on Income by Customer Summary Report.
Here is an example of what happens when $1,000 billable purchase returned to the supplier for a refund and deposited that money in the bank. The goal is to show zero expense related to that customer.
