I don't want to send my invoices directly from Quickbooks. Can I avoid including an email address in the invoice form or stop it automatically emailing the invoice?

My invoice needs to be accompanied by a 'package' of other documents.  I don't want QB to send the invoice.  I want the invoice to come directly from me.

How can I by-pass the QB default?


I'd rather not have the client email address on the invoice form.  I did a test by sending myself an email invoice.  It came from QB as a spammy looking email with hyperlinks.  This client is my former employer - their IT policy would throw this type of email into quarantine.

I don't want to accidentally send them an email from this way.  Besides the invoice has to be accompanied by other document(s).  I want to be able to send them a 'package' of materials that supports the invoice.

Is there a way to NOT be forced to put an email address into the invoice form?

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.
