    • Enable auto generation of Invoice Number. Refer Invoice Preferences for details.
    • Add the list of items (your product or service) to the system and have them ready before invoicing. This helps you from the pain of entering the product or service information again and again while adding a new invoice.
    • Add the customers to whom you invoice your product or service. This list again avoids the pain of entering the customer information during invoice addition.
    • Specify your payment terms while adding customer, so that you need not bother about it while adding invoice.
    • Set up a generic customer message in your Invoice Preferences. You can customize it on those invoices, on which it is really necessary.
    • Set up your invoice "Terms & Conditions" in your Invoice Preferences.
    • Set up your product or service taxes (if any) in the tax settings and specify the same while adding the product or service.
    • Customize the e-mail templates and have them ready.
