Hi there, @rackemup


Thanks for joining the Community today. I'm here to assist you in getting rid of the "Stock template can't be modified" error that you received when modifying templates in QuickBooksDesktop. 


Editing a stock template or a default email template in QuickBooks Desktop is currently unavailable in QuickBooks Desktop. You'll need to add a new template and make changes afterward.


To do that:

  1. Click Edit.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. Select Send Forms.
  4. Choose the Company Preferences tab.
  5. Click the Add Template button.
  6. Enter the template name.
  7. Modify the subject and the body of the email.
  8. Click Save.

For more information about this process, please check out these articles: 

Also, I encourage you to send us feedback about how we can improve your QuickBooks Desktop experience. That way our Developers will be able to determine those feature that can help you run your business easier.


To do that:

  1. Click on Help at the top menu bar.
  2. Select on Send Feedback Online.
  3. Choose Product Suggestion.
  4. Enter your feedback.
  5. Then Send

There you go @rackemup. Please let me know if you need additional assistance. I'm always here to help. Have a great day!
