How to edit a recurring invoice profile or an invoice in a recurring series
This article explains how to edit a recurring invoice profile, line items on a recurring invoice profile template and an invoice in a recurring series.
Please note that any changes you make to an invoice profile will only affect invoices that are generated after you save the changes. Any invoices that were generated before you saved these changes, including those that are in draft and those that are marked as sent, won’t be updated.
Navigating to the invoice profile
Begin selecting ‘Recurring Invoices’ from the 'Work' drop-down menu at the top of the screen.
Select the relevant recurring invoice profile from the list.
Editing a recurring invoice profile
To edit the recurring invoice profile, select ‘Edit’ in the top-right corner.
Make the necessary changes to the recurring invoice profile and then select ‘Update Profile’.
You'll then be taken back to your list of recurring invoice profiles.
Editing line items on all future invoices in a recurring series
Select the relevant recurring invoice profile from the list and then choose ‘Make Draft’ in the top-left corner of the recurring invoice profile.
Next, select ‘Edit’ on the right-hand side of the relevant line item. For information on adding date variables so that line items on the invoices can include dates which update automatically each time an invoice is generated, please see this article. Alternatively, select the cross to remove it from the invoice completely.
Edit the line items as required and select the ‘Activate’ tab to update the recurring invoice profile.
Editing an individual invoice in a recurring series
Select the relevant recurring invoice profile from the list. Choose the invoice reference number from the ‘Invoices generated from this profile’ section at the bottom of the recurring invoice profile.
If the invoice is labelled 'Draft' in the 'Status' column, you can edit the invoice straight away. If a 'Draft' status isn’t displayed, select ‘Make Draft’ in the top-left corner.
To edit any of the invoice details, select ‘Edit’ in the top-right corner.
To edit a line item, select ‘Edit’ on the right-hand side of each relevant line item. Alternatively, select the cross to remove it completely.
Once you’ve saved the relevant changes, select ‘Mark as Sent’.
Select ‘Send by Email’ if you're sending the invoice to your customer for the first time. Alternatively, select 'Re-send by Email’ if you've already sent this invoice to your customer and would like to send them an updated version after making these changes.
