Invoice, quote, and job PDF options
After the style tab, there are tabs for invoices, quotes, and job PDF settings.
These tabs have checkboxes for various items that can be included on the PDFs. These are the options that you have to chose some on each tab:
- Refer to 'Quote' as 'Estimate' on PDF (quotes): This option will replace the wording on the PDF only with estimate instead of quote.
- Show QTY on line items (quotes and invoice): Shows the quantity of a line item.
- Show unit cost on line items (quotes and invoices): Shows the unit cost of a line item.
- Show total cost per line items (quotes and invoices): Shows the total cost of a line item. The total cost depends on the quantity and the unit cost.
- Show totals & tax in footer (quotes): Shows the total of the line items on the quote and the tax.
- Deposit language (quotes): This section allows you to set a specific message to appear if you mark the quote with a required deposit when creating it. If this option is marked, the client will see this additional text on the quote.
- Show client signature line (quotes and jobs): Adds a line on the PDF that the client can sign if printed.
- Include return payment stub (invoices): Adds a tear off payment return stub at the bottom of your unpaid invoices. Note: the return stub is formatted to fit #8 envelopes.
- Show late stamp if overdue (invoices): If an invoice is late, this option will put text that says the invoice is late across the invoice.
- Show account balance (invoices): This will show the account balance in addition to the invoice balance. The account balance is made up of all the invoices and payments for the client.
- Show paid date (invoices): Shows the date the payment was collected in Jobber.
- Show "name of custom field" (quotes, jobs, and invoices): If you have any custom fields setup, this is where you can enable if they are client facing. The custom field will show by name such as "referred by". Checking off the custom field here will make this field visible both on the PDF and in client hub.
- Contract/disclaimer field (quotes, jobs, and invoices): This message will appear at the bottom of the PDFs and can be used for information you'd like to make your client aware of.
Previewing the PDF form
You will see a small preview of the custom PDF on the right hand side of the dialog box and it will update as you make changes to any of the templates.
Clicking on the View PDF Preview will open the full size PDF in another tab of your browser, letting you see exactly what the template will look like.
Note: The preview and custom template will not be saved until you click Save Changes.
