How do I stop invoices from being sent automatically.

Hello there, @awgarnitz.


You may have created a recurring invoice transaction which is set to automatically send on a scheduled date. You can edit or delete the recurring transaction template to stop it from sending it automatically. 


Here's how:

  1. Go to the Gear icon. 

  2. Pick the Recurring Transactions.  
  3. Locate the invoice Template.  
  4. From the Action column, click the Edit link.  
  5. Remove the checkmark on Automatically send emails.

  6. Click the Save Template button.

You can read through this article to learn more about how it works: Recurring Transactions in QuickBooks Online.
