Customized Template of QuickBooks Invoice Issue

QuickBooks software is one stop accounting software that tackles with all types of financial activities performed within a business. The software ensures daily, weekly quarterly and annual tasks of the business are completed effectively and efficiently. It also allows user to customize templates of specific tasks and reports. User can also customize the template made for invoices. However, at times the error is faced when the user wishes to set the customized invoice template as default template for future use.

Suppose the user has designed a customized invoice, however when they open Create Invoice screen, the customised template is not memorized by the window  when the user returns back to generate another invoice. Similarly, in the case of templates, when user tries to structure invoice, same template should be shown. Thus it is interpreted that the setting is a little complex and will only be changed through the drop down menu of the template.
