Invoice Number Formats

Last Updated January 12th, 2018 by Becca Ellig

Each invoice is given a number. This is how you customize your number formatting.

How to customize your number formatting:

  1. Navigate to Settings.
  2. Select Invoice Settings from Financial Settings.
  3. Enter your customizations. See below for help with some of the fields.
  4. Click Submit.

Custom Number

You can set your Invoice Numbers to appear in your own format. We've given you a few different codes to help you customize.

  • {COUNT}: Will count up from your Initial Count Value. This must always be included.
  • {DD}: Will display the current day number.
  • {MM}: Will display the current month number.
  • {YYYY}: Will display the current year.

You can use any combination of the above codes as long as you always include the Count and limit it to 25 characters long. To use multiple, just add each code. Example: I#{COUNT}-{DD}{MM}{YYYY}.

All invoice numbers can still be edited in Invoice creation if you need something outside of this format.

Tip: Use the Number Preview box to see how your numbers will end up looking with your customizations.

Length of Counter

This will set how many digits are displayed in the counter.

Initial Count Value

Set what number you want your invoices to start at. Each invoice number after the first one will count up from the Initial Count Value.
