Customised invoice templates

Can we create different invoice templates such that the basic information shown on them varies.  e.g. for small value goods, we do not get a PO from the client. So we would like to have an invoice template without a PO number. for some clients, PO number is compulsory. Is such a customization possible?


Hi there, asmita.

You can manually do this in QuickBooks Online. Add the PO number on the customer's packing slip, and then you can create a custom field on the invoice template. Then, enter it manually before printing it.

Here's how you can do it:

  1. Click the Gear icon at the top.
  2. Under Your Company, click Custom Form Styles.
  3. If you already have an invoice template, click Edit in the far right.
  4. If not, click the New style button in the upper right-hand corner and select Invoice.
  5. Click the Content tab.
  6. Click the header of the template.
  7. Below the Display section, click the +Custom field link.
  8. Check the box to add the custom field and name it PO Number.
  9. Click Done.

Keep me posted if there's anything else I can help you with.

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.
