You can customize certain fields in the generated documents, in particular the description of the articles and the texts before and after the list of articles. To do this, use the following symbols:

$DATE document date ex. 3/12/2022 $DAYOFMONTH day of month (1 to 31) $MONTH month name ex. January $YEAR year of document date ex. 2022 $DAY jour de la semaine ex. Lundi

You can add or subtract a number to these symbols (without space). ex. $YEAR+1 $MONTH+3 or $DAY-1
Some examples for a document generated on 1/1/2022:

Subscription $MONTH to $MONTH+3 $YEAR —-> Subscription January to March 2022 Order from $DAY $DATE, processed on $DAY+1 $DATE+1 —-> Order from Saturday 1/1/2022, processed on Sunday 2/1/2022 Bi-annual subscription $YEAR to $YEAR+1 —-> Bi-annual subscription 2022 to 2023

How to edit invoice and quote references?

Fiduly generates a unique invoice and quote number that increments from one document to another. This number is displayed by default on documents as a reference to communicate to customers. If you want to use your own references on documents, it is possible! To do this, go to “Settings” and choose the “Invoicing” tab. Next, check the box “Use your own invoice reference”. Press “Update”
Now, when you edit an invoice or a quote, a new field “Invoice reference” or “Quote reference” appears and allows you to modify the reference that you communicate to your customers on the documents (instead of the number generated by the software). This does not affect the software’s ability to automatically recognize bill payments in your bank statements.
