Duplicate quote number alert



I have changed my setup to alert when an invoice number is about to be duplicated.  When this was done in the setup in the old system it applied to quotes as well, but this is not the case with the new system.  Can this be changed?

Hi @ruth_mbj3

Thank you for your idea in regards to duplicate invoice numbers for quotes.

When you have entered a duplicate invoice number* on a quote it should give you a yellow triangle warning next to the Invoice number field indicating that it has been used already. This is because the invoice number field for quotes it the same as the invoice number used for invoices and orders. Please note I have seen the warning take its time to appear so enter that invoice number first and enter in the rest of the invoice then see if it has that yellow triangle just before recording.

*Provided that the Setup>>Preferences>>Sales>>Warn for Duplicate Invoice Number on Recorded Sales is ticked.

Kind regards,
