Wondering if anyone knows how to add a note or message on every invoice. For example: Happy Holidays! thanks

Hello, gmartin1.


Adding a note or message to your invoices is one way to make your transactions more personalized. I'm happy to show you the steps on how to add it. 


You can create an invoice template or edit the Standard form style for your invoices. You'll have the option to add a note or any greetings you want for your customers. Here's how to do it: 


  1. Click the Gear icon, then choose Custom form styles.
  2. Hit the Edit button under Actions for Standard or your own template (you can also create a new style).
  3. On the style overview, click the Content tab.
  4. Select the third section of the preview image.
  5. Under the first box for Message to customer on, enter your message.
  6. Click Done





You can also add your message to the invoice email. Simply go to the Emails tab, then customize your message under Message to customer




Another way to do this is on the invoice creation screen. Click the + New button, then select Invoice. Enter the message under the Message on invoice box.

After making a customized template for your invoice, you can use it by clicking the Customize button on the invoice screen. Then, select the template.
