How do I mark an Invoice as ‘sent’ without sending it?

There are 2 ways to mark an invoice as sent without actually sending an email/snail mail to your client.


Check out the ‘Mark as Sent’ section of our Video all about Invoices:

  1. Go to the Invoices tab.
  2. Hover your cursor over the Invoice number of your choice. This will have to be a draft Invoice.
  3. A little pop up window will appear with the option to “Mark as Sent”. Click on that!

Second method: Marking multiple Invoices as ‘sent’

  1. Go to the Invoices tab
  2. Find the Invoice(s) you want to send in your list
  3. Check the little box(es) on the left of the Invoice Numbers
  4. Click Send at the top of the table (grey button, approximately at the center)

  5. Marking Multiple Invoices as Sent

  6. This will bring you to a new page that asks you how you want the email to be sent
  7. “Un-check” both Email and Snail Mail boxes
  8. Choose whether or not you want future Invoices to send this way for that Client
  9. Click the green Send button

  10. Marking Multiple Invoices as Sent 2

  11. Now your Invoices will be marked as sent, but your Client won’t receive an email/snail mail.
