Invoice Emails

Joe Schmoe   ( User )

When I send an Email Invoice to my clients they are confused because of the following

FROM: Example ([email protected])

I would like to change it to [email protected]?

SUBJECT: Invoice

I would like to modify this to say Invoice 55


   There is a Pay Now button that shows up but we only accept checks so it would be nice to customze this with something like please make all check payable to blah blah

Also can I customize the name of the Invoice PDF attached to invoice-55.pdf?

Im not sure if all these all can be customized easily or maybe Im not seeing it in the settings.


Thank you for such a great product =]

Hello Joe,

I just tried the "Send Email" button and the sender information is the one entered in the Settings > General page. From which page are you trying to send the email?

Email Templates feature which allows you to customize subject, body etc of the email is on our to-do list.

Thanks for getting back to me so fast. Thats great news! Im super excited about the template modification thats on the roadmap. I checked the General tab and all is updated with what I want. This happens when I send an email under invoices. I installed a new instance of akaunting from scratch to test to see if something screwy happened with my current installation but im still seeing [email protected] in the FROM. Thanks for your valuable time.

Hi Denis,


I would like to change the text of the invoicing email I send to my clients. How do I go about this?


Thank you

try this:


line 373 & 447

Change '.time()." to '.$invoice->invoice_number.'

To edit the name of the pdf file edit:


1. $file = storage_path('app/temp/invoice_'.$invoice->invoice_number.'.pdf');

2. $file_name = 'invoice_'.$invoice->invoice_number.'.pdf';

To customize your email invoices, change the sender email address, modify the subject line, add custom text to the email body, and change the name of the attached PDF. Look for the settings or preferences section in your invoicing software and find the options to edit the email template, sender email address, subject line, and PDF name. Contact the software support team if you need help.
