How do I edit the default text in emails that Quickbooks creates to send invoices to customers? I have tried clicking just about every menu in Quickbooks as well as going to the QB support site and can't seem to find how to change something that should be pretty simple to change.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Click Edit > Preferences > Send Forms, and then click the tab that says "Company Preferences". The drop-down box that says "change default for", you can change the default text for invoices, estimates, sales orders, and other documents that are commonly e-mailed from within QuickBooks. Once you have made your updates, click the OK button to save your changes.
From the cog top right corner choose "company settings"
From the left hand menu click 'sales'. Then you can edit your messages by clicking on the section.
I've tried to edit the email template as suggested (Edit/Preferences/Send Forms/Company Preferences, but it won't let me save any of the changes I make. I keep getting the message "Stock template can't be modified". Why is this happening?

I've created a custom template to email my invoices in "batch", however, the custom template is not being used, even though it is set as the default. I've tried the workarounds that I found in Help, copy and paste the message from the template directly into the email and deselecting and selecting the "email later" check box, but neither are working for me. Both of these methods are not user-friendly either. Is there a fix coming for this? Batch email is a very useful tool and I don't understand why this is even an issue.
