How do I add a note to all customers invoices/ statements.

I need to add a Title of Retention note to our invoices/statements and some other notes about Christmas hours etc. How do I do this. I don't want to do it individually, I want to type it once and for it to come up on all invoices/statements then automatically.


Hello there, Michelle.

There's an easy way of adding notes to invoices or statements.

You can add this as a footer in where there are two places where you can put in a customer message, as default.

Let me show you how:

  1. Click on the Gear icon at the top, then Custom Form Styles.
  2. Choose New style or choose the type of transaction you want to customize.
  3. Click on Content.
  4. Click the boxes under Invoices and other sales forms or Add payment details and footer to enter any information.
  5. Save changes.

Attached is a screenshot so you can see exactly what I'm referring to.

Other option is import your custom form style.

Please let me know if you're able to edit the template after trying the steps. Thank you!

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
