Invoice Total on First Page

Hello, Is there a way to add the invoice total to the first page? We added a box that says balance due, but the dollar amount is still only showing on the last page of the invoice. I know there is a way to show only on the last page, but  we want the balance due to show on the front page as well.


Please help! it looks funky to have the box hat says balance due, then no dollar amount.


Thanks in advance!

Hi there, MellowElectric.


You can customize the form’s layout designer and placed the total field to your desired part in the invoice. Here’s how:

  1. Click Lists at the top and select Templates. 
  2. Double-click the invoice template you’re using. 
  3. Select the Layout Designer tab. 
  4. Drag the Total field to your desired position. 
  5. Click Ok twice. 

Drop some comments below if there’s something else that I can help you with.

Glad to see you here in the Community, Safi88.

I'd be glad to help you go over to your invoice template and show the total on the first page.


You may want to make sure that the option to Only show Total on the last page is not selected. This way, the invoice total will show on the first page.


Here's how:


  1. On the invoice template screen, go to Print tab.
  2. Remove the check mark for Only show Total on the last page.
  3. Click OK.
  4. Hit OK again.
