You can either manually enter a particular invoice number or let the system auto-generate the number for you. If you wish to enable auto-generation go to 'New Invoice' page under 'Invoice'. Click on 'Enable Auto-Generation' as shown in the above image and the invoice number image pops up.
|Auto Generation||To generate numbers automatically, select the check box for 'Generate invoice numbers automatically'. To disable the auto-generation, just uncheck the box and save the settings.
Note: You will be not be able to disable the auto-generate function if recurring invoices are set by you in the 'General Preference' settings page. If you still want to disable, you can change the recurring invoice setting to 'save as draft and notify me'. Save it and then change the auto-generation settings from the new invoice page.
|Prefix||The prefix refers to the text that is displayed before the invoice sequence number. By default, the prefix in Zoho Invoice is 'INV-'. You can change this to suit your invoice numbering requirements.|
|Next Number||This is the sequence number of the next invoice that would be created.|
