  • These operate in a similar manner to purchase orders. All item specifications are done in DesignSmart. Select the items to include in the invoice and preview it in DesignSmart to ensure accuracy. When you click on the "Create Invoice" button, all of the invoice details in DesignSmart are transferred to QuickBooks and an invoice is created.
  • Most firms will send the client the invoice that DesignSmart creates because it will look better. You can even click on the button "Include Images" so that images appear on the invoice as well. 

Client Deposits

  • When you enter a client deposit in DesignSmart, it is recorded in QuickBooks automatically. When you create invoices and apply these deposits toward the amount due, QuickBooks is automatically updated. This ensures that you always have accurate information about how much money is available for each project.
