Hi

I'm using TO3000 for invoicing my clients and I would like to add a couple of fields to the invoice template, namely:

1) Job # (which is in fact, different to the PO #)
2) Project manager's email.

Is it possible to do that? BTW I included "Job #" as the "Client Ref" in "Client Jobs, and the email of the PM is in the "Contacts" list.

-------------------------
Also, I want the name of the invoice to be preceeded by a my own invoicing numbers. I'm not sure if I'm clear. Let's say that the standard invoice name provided by TO3000 are
I-CLIENTAA0001
I-CLIENTAA0002
I-CLIENTAA0003

I-CLIENTBB0001
I-CLIENTBB0002

I-CLIENTAA0004


Is it possible to change that to follow the number of my old invoicing system so the invoices are numbered as followS?:
451 I-CLIENTAA0001,
152 I-CLIENTAA0002,
453 I-CLIENTAA0003
454 I-CLIENTBB0001
455 I-CLIENTBB0002

456 I-CLIENTAA0004


Thanks

Clarisa

Answer to question 1 Sep 29, 2011

Hi Clarisa,

I know only the answer to question 1:
1) The code for job number is \DTLINKJOBS:CJOB_NAME\
2) The code for PM's email is \CONTACT_NAME\ \CONTACT_EMAIL1\ (providing that the email address is taken from the "email 1" field

What about your question #2, I would be also interested in knowing the answer. At present I change invoice numbers manually in Word, before converting them to PDFs, which is rather unefficient.

I would like to invite you to this thread: http://www.proz.com/topic/202627 - maybe you would have some more suggestions.

Natalia

I've already modified the template! I assume that if you need to use the field "email 2" you should use \CONTACT_NAME\ \CONTACT_EMAIL2\

Where can I find further info regarding field?

I've only been using TO3000 for a few months, so when I started, I chose Global Code in the Advanced Settings and I also entered the number I wanted to use from my old invoicing system under "Next Codes". You can also add a prefix and suffix to the number, which can be invariable text or variable YYYY, MM or DD.

HTH.
