Templates

The Layer supports customised templates for invoice and credit note output. These are HTML documents controlling content and styling.

These will be used to generate the document created when you email, print, or save an invoice or credit note.

When creating a template, a box can be checked to indicate that it is suitable for an invoice or credit note. Although multiple boxes can be checked, it is recommended to use a different template for each.

For information on working with output templates in general, check this article.


Setting an invoice template

From Settings - Company Settings - Quotation and Sales, administrators can determine the invoice and credit note template that will be used.

If your instance of The Layer uses sub companies, each sub company can have its templates set from Settings - Sub Companies.


Invoice-specific snippets

The following stock snippets are available for inclusion within an invoice template.

This is not the extent of what can be done with invoice snippets, as custom snippets can be created in many cases.

For a full list of snippets in your instance, users with Settings access can go to Settings - Page Snippets.
