Is there a way to add more "insert field" options?
I want to pull from the customer "company name" field and not "first name - last name" field. Is there a way to do that?
I appreciate you for reaching out, Kevin.
I can see the importance of adding more insert field options when creating a custom email template in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT). At this time, the system defaults to the available fields under the Insert Field dropdown.

On the other hand, yes, you can pull the Company Name instead of the First Name - Last Name field. I'll show you how.
From there, the company name will show up on that section instead of the first and last name.

Thank you. That enters my company name. I want to insert the customer's company name. Is that available?
Can you also point me to where I edit the template for batched emails?
When I use the feature "combine forms to one recipient in one email" there is a new email template generated. I can't seem to find where to edit that.
Hi there, @Kvrddn.
Thanks for getting back to us here in the Community. Allow me to hop in and share information about customizing email templates in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).
The steps shared by my colleague above should help change the first name/last name field to your customer's company name.
On the other hand, if you choose Email Later, you can select one of your templates when you send a batch of emails. This can be done by going to the File menu and selecting Send Forms. Then choose the template you want to use from the Template drop-down.

When I select Batch for email for one customer, there is NOT a way to change which template comes up. Is there a way to create a Batch Template Email. When you check the box at the bottom Combine forms to a recipient in one email all the drop down options are gone. When you UNCHECK the combine forms to a recipient the drop down options are available.
Where is the body information pulling from?

You’ll want to use your templates for your emails when sending batch emails. I’ll be glad to walk you through how:
Once done, follow these steps on how to create your templates:
From there, see those templates from the Company Preferences tab of the Send forms menu. To set one as a default, choose a transaction type and then Set Default next to the template you want to utilize.

This does not put the customer's company name in the email, it puts MY company name in the field, which is completely useless. My company name doesn't change. I can just type my company name, and it will/should be the same in every email. The whole point of a field in a template is so that it puts the customer's info in that field.
Thanks for joining the thread and following the suggested steps above, @Brian1234.
Upon checking, I can verify that your company name is what showing when sending e-invoices and not your customer's company.
Let me share another workaround you can use to show your customer's info when sending invoices. You can still show these details by editing the template itself before sending your transaction. Simply follow these steps:

The [company name] data filed should be customer company name but the filed right now is our company name. Why do we need to do a dynamic data filed for our company? The company who issue invoice would always be the same company. It is totally a mistake of quickbook. Please correct it ASAP.
The [Company Name] insert filed should be Customer company name but it is set up to be our company name ( the company who issue the invoice). This is totally wrong. Why we need a dynamic data insert filed for our company name which will be all the same when we email to different customer. Quickbooks should fix this mistake ASAP.
