Open a form you want to design

When you're ready to personalise a form, open the form you want to work with.

  1. Go to the Setup menu and choose Customise Forms. The Customise Forms window appears.

    Can't see the Customise Forms option? By default, you need to have been assigned the Administrator or Accountant/Bookkeeper role in order to be able to access this feature. See Default user roles.

  2. Click the tab for the type of form you want to customise.

  3. Click a form group to display the forms for that group. For example, click the Item group in the Invoices tab to see all item invoice forms.

  4. Click the form, then click Customise. The form opens in the form design window, like this:

Can I create a new form from scratch?


No, you'll need to personalise an existing form - which means a lot of the work has already been done for you.
