Q: Is there a place to write payment instructions on an invoice?

A: Within LeanLaw's draft invoice screen, there is an editable notes section when you click to edit the Invoice memo.


Adding a note is an opportunity to communicate to your client payment instructions or other information pertaining to the invoice. You can customize the note in any draft invoice. If you need more information on how to get an invoice to the draft state, click here.
