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.

Next, select ‘Edit’ on the right-hand side of the relevant line item. Find out how to add date variables so that line items on the invoices can include dates which update automatically each time an invoice is generated. Alternatively, select the cross to remove it from the invoice completely.
