What kind of customisation can I add to invoices?

Can I send progress invoices?

Tradify allows you to create progress invoices straight from a quote. Depending on how you like to invoice, Tradify enables you to invoice a percentage, fixed amount, or a particular line item of a quote.

Can I invoice multiple jobs for a customer on one invoice?

Yes. Tradify’s billing run feature allows you to invoice multiple jobs for a customer in one go, with all the details for each job appearing on the one invoice. Instead of invoicing each job individually, in a few clicks you can have all your jobs for a customer on one single invoice or if you prefer an invoice for each job.

Can I email my customers the appointment details?

Yes, you can email the appointment details for a job directly to your customer.

Will my staff get notified if I schedule an appointment for them?

Can my staff enter their timesheets on the mobile app?

Yes, your staff can enter their timesheets on the mobile app.

Can I set up and save pricing lists?

Yes. Tradify allows you to not only create your own price list, but also import your supplier’s price list into the system. In order to import the price list it must be a CSV file. This helps speed by the process of creating quotes.

Can my customers accept and sign my quote on site?

The Tradify mobile app allows customers to accept your quotes while you are on site. You can use the mobile app to capture the customer’s signature against quotes, which will be saved and dated at the bottom of the quote.

Can my customers accept quotes online?

Customers can accept quotes online straight from the email you send them. They will have the ability to accept and comment on the quote online.

Once accepted you will receive an email to inform you that the quote has been accepted.

Can I set up quote templates?

You can set up quote templates within Tradify to help speed up your quoting process.

You can add a preloaded description and line items to your templates, to save you re-entering information. These can be edited and personalised for each quote.
