Creating invoices is made simple when using QuickBooks Online! As a small business owner, time is money. That's why we've implemented awesome time-saving tools to help you focus more on doing what you love. I'll explain how you can take advantage of the Recurring Transactions feature to create bi-weekly invoices automatically.
Follow the steps listed here to create Recurring Transactions: How to create a recurring invoice and manage recurring transactions.
If you want to create the transaction every other week, select Weekly, then every two weeks.
Simple as that! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our tech support team.
Have a great day.
I do not see how your solution address my question.
I never mentioned that these were "simple" recurrences. I need to see each individual invoice as was (to me) implied with the request of a copy.
I would like to populate a contract term of lets say 10 invoices, with bi-weekly schedules with "default" amounts of time/tax/dollar, etc - then to be able to go in to each invoice individually and update a relevant invoice when necessary.
It may be that you did answer the question, but the explanation is not clear and I didn't want to execute the task without confidence this is the solution.
What is this referenced in the link you provided? It's what I see and do not see these options in the invoice.

Hi sattracker. Thanks for reaching back out with more information about your goals. I want to make sure you're given the best possible advice. It's important to note that the Recurring Transactions feature is only available in QuickBooks Online Essentials and Plus.
If you feel that the Recurring Transactions feature isn't going to be right for you, I'd encourage you to reach out to our tech support team to discuss your needs in more detail.
Well I'm not sure what I'm paying for, but so far the service is marginal at best.
Thanks - I should have stuck with Excel.
We have exactly the same problem and it would seem that the helpdesk has ignored what the question was posed. The issue is not how to create reoccurring invoices. The issue is how to create a code within the description of the invoice that increments the dates of the services delivered. Ie last week's may well be the 1st of June to the 5th of June 2020 next week's invoice would need to say the 8th of June through to the 13th of June.
Is there something we can place in the description that will recognise the change in the date range.
Hi mg to. Thanks for joining the discussion. I can appreciate that recurring transactions may not be the feature you're looking for. I want to make sure I'm on the same page before providing more information.
Are you trying to set up automatic date-range schedules for your invoices? Can you provide a bit of further information on that?
Thank you for your reply. Reoccurring invoices is what I'm looking for as I want to automate this. I have regular invoices that go out weekly and fortnightly that need to show date ranges in the description displaying when services happen.at the moment I am forced to copy the previous invoice and amend the description with the dates that were required.
I suppose the other option is that I put a day service per line yet the question would still remain how do I get the date to change per line without manual intervention
Consider having a 3rd party billing management app to do so.
