How can I set a new default message on my receipts (I don't want to have to re-type it on every single one)?

Hi J-9,


Welcome to Community!  Customizing your forms in QuickBooks Self-Employed can be accomplished in just a few steps.  I'll be happy to help!


When you set a default message it will be applied to all forms moving forward.  Here's how to set a new default message:


1. Log into QuickBooks Self-Employed in a web browser

2. Open Invoices from the menu

3. Select the Create invoice option

4. Make the necessary changes

6. Hit Save when complete

You're all set!

Hi, thanks for your reply, however, changing the message on invoices and saving it for the future was not my question. I would like to know how to change the message on receipts and save it for the future. Could you please assist me with this?  



Thanks for reaching out to us again, J-9.


The automatic entry of receipt messages is currently unavailable in QuickBooks Self-Employed. The receipts doesn't have a customizable setting or preference, so we're unable to apply modifications to them.


We recognize the need to have this option in QuickBooks Self-Employed. For now you need to enter them manually in the program. 


We also want to make sure this gets to our developers, so we encourage you to log your suggestion. Follow the steps below in your QBSE account:


  1. Tap the Assistant icon on top of the account.
  2. Type Feedback then press Enter.
  3. Click on the Add a feature option.
  4. Type your feedback then press Enter again on your keyboard. 


Let me know if there's anything else you need help with QBSE concerns. I'll be right here to assist your self-employment questions any time. Have a good one!
