I have been using the Custom Invoice Template for the longest period of time up until 10 days ago when the custom invoice template is not being applied when Creating Invoice from Estimate or Creating a New Invoice. The invoice template reverts to the Standard quickbooks invoice template when i click on 'Print and preview'!!
QB helpdesk had tested my custom invoice template and noted no exceptions. They informed it could be a backend problem and affecting many users and are investigating. Is the backend team working expeditiously to remedy the situation?? Anyone else facing the same issue? Thank you.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for your patience while we worked on resolving this. We released an update to address your feedback.
Prior to this change, any time an Estimate was converted to an Invoice (with progress invoice setting on), the Airy new template would display. Now, when converting an Estimate to an Invoice (non-progress invoice or progress invoice) any template you have set as default will display, including invoice templates imported into QuickBooks Online via Import Styles.
Note: If you do use progress invoicing, we highly recommend using the Airy new template as this is the only template that is optimized to display key progress invoice information such as the Estimate Summary and the Due column. This level of detail is not available on imported invoices.
To set your imported invoice template as default:

We appreciate your patience while we worked on resolving this.
Thanks for bringing this into our attention, Jeremy.
We've received reports regarding this and our engineers are already working for a fix. I'd recommend contacting our QuickBooks Customer Care Team again. They can add your profile to the list of affected users and keep you up to date about this.
We'd appreciate your patience as we work for a resolution.
Its been 10 days since we raised the issue to Quickbooks customer care. We have been creating the invoices manually outside of Quickbooks in word docx format...... and its extremely time consuming having to copy and paste all information over again from the Estimate when previously we could just do it with a click....... We are not talking about creating a few invoices but thousands..................... Please look into this matter with utmost urgency as it is affecting the operations dramatically. Thx.
Hi, is anyone looking into this matter?? And are many accounts affected? We used quickbooks because of how efficient work is done hence streamlining operations. However, this issue on the custom template has caused alot more trouble, time cost and hindering operations drastically. Please someone look into this matter with utmost urgency.
I can assure you that this is being worked on by our engineers, and we'll update this post when a fix will be rolled out.
Thank you for your understanding.
for the record, I was told it would take approx 7 days to fix the issue. We patiently waited for 7 days hoping that quickbooks can resolve it. For the record, its been 13 days since we raised the issue. thanks.
Hello, I too am having this issue and it is creating MASSIVE headaches! What is the ETA on this, QB has been silent for the past week so I wanted to post that there are others being effected by this. As previously mentioned in the thread... why is this taking so long to fix? What change broke this feature? and most Importantly, WHEN will this issue be resolved. I would hope that moving to QBO meant that these kind of issues would be resolved quickly.
Yes seriously when is this going to be solved? Please give us a timeline, not telling me 7 days to solve and we wait patiently for 7 days and after 14 days theres no one updating on the status of the resolution?? Is this case even escalated, and are the backend team working to resolve this expeditiously? Our patience is getting limited.
We have no definite time as to when will this be resolved, but our engineers are working on a solution. We will post an update here when this will be fixed.
Thank you for your patience.
As I've checked the status of this issue, it says that our engineers are still working on to get this fixed. For now, I'll take note that you've been reaching out to us and I'll personally send feedback.
We'll keep you posted once there's an update. Thank you for your patience.
Thank you. I have been constantly requesting for resolution not only here but with the customer care hotline. Its really very frustrating and time consuming to workaround using the word document instead of the one-click solution. Please i hope this can be solved ASAP. thanks.

I am having the same problem and have been waiting for an update for about a month. However, the custom invoice template created from word has worked a couple times when I create a new invoice. I do most of my invoicing from estimates especially when progress invoicing. When I create an invoice from an estimate, it reverts to the standard quickbooks invoice template no matter what custom invoice is selected.
Hi there, @Anonymous,
Yes, I've checked here on my end that the investigation is still open about the invoice template always resorting to standard. Our Product Development Team is currently working to have a permanent fix within a quickest time.
For your progress invoicing concern, the program is designed to work with the Airy Template. Just to verify, which specific custom invoice template are you using for your progress invoicing? This way, I can check here on my end if there are ongoing issues specific for a template.
If you want to use your chosen custom template, you can perform the workaround steps below:
In the meantime, please give us a call to our QuickBooks Online Customer Care Team. By doing so, they'll be able to add your company to our notification list. Email updates will be sent as soon as the issue is resolved.
We thank you for your patience, @Anonymous. You can count me in if you need anything else.
Please stop repeating that your engineers, your product team etc is working on it working on it.... please give specific timeline, what is causing the issue and how you all are fixing it? Will your engineers or product team give us back lost time? Do you know how much additional time required to manually recreate the invoice? It’s double work!
There’s so many people affected. Yet one month and no resolution. This is a joke.
Thanks for reaching back out to us, @Jeremy_T.
