Or click on the magnifying glass to select a contact from the customer record that you would like to send the email to. This can be multiple individuals at the company.
And lastly, you can send to any additional email addresses. This is often used to copy the salesperson for this company, just type the email address in the “To Additional E-mail Addresses” box.
Now when you print invoices you are able to select a paperless office output. If you want the system to automatically email the customer their invoices, or print if they do not have the email function setup in customer maintenance then select “Print/PDF or Electronic Delivery”. Click the print button, a window will appear saying it sent X number of emails based on the number of customers you have set up for this functionality that had invoices in this printing.
