how do i insert a phone number in contact info on outgoing invoices it keeps saying invalid phone number ?


Customize the content of your invoicing format to add the phone number, benjaminjoshua.

The format of the phone number must be country code plus phone number. Then, to add this on your outgoing invoices, edit the content of your invoicing format.

Check the following steps:

  1. Go to the Gear icon and select Custom Form Styles.
  2. Click the Edit button of the invoice that you're using.
  3. Select the Content tab, then choose the Header
  4. Put a mark on the Phone and provide the number.
  5. Click Done

I'm adding a screenshot below for reference. Read this article for more information: Customise your invoices, estimates, and sales receipts.  

Keep me updated if this does the trick and gets you back to business. I'm always here if you need further assistance. Take care and have a great rest of the day.

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.
