Invoices checked to print & email

It seems all invoices are automatically marked/checked to print and email.  Is that a default setting or is there a place that I can stop that from happening every time I create an invoice?

Invoices checked to print & email

Hi there, MicheleElizabeth.


Thank you for posting in the Community. I'd be happy to help and walk you through on how you can change the marked/checked to print and email settings when creating an invoice. 


Here's how to uncheck the Email Later box: 

  1. From the Edit menu, select Preferences.
  2. On the left pane, select Send Forms.
  3. Click the My Preferences tab.
  4. Clear the Auto-check the "Email Later" checkbox if customer's Preferred Delivery Method is e-mail box. 
  5. Click OK

I've added a screenshot for your reference. 


To clear the Print Later checkbox by default, the next time you create an invoice, just remove the check mark on the box before saving it. QuickBooks will keep that setting as the new default.


If you need additional help, our phone agents will be able to help you get to a resolution quickly.


Here's how you can reach them:

  1. Go to
  2. Select your QuickBooks Desktop version at the top right.
  3. Select a topic.
  4. Click the green Get Phone Number button to see the support number.

These resources should help to get you back on track when creating an invoice. 


Don't hesitate to post again if you have any other questions about changing the settings in creating an invoice. I'll be happy to help you out.
