Credit as Delivery Notes

Hi! As @hillel kindly suggested, I’m going to use the credit tab to manage the delivery notes.

This approach is not perfect, but should make the app usable for us!

However, I’m facing one main problem:

When I edit in settings>Invoice Design>Credit Design>CUSTOMTEMPLATE
(Via Customize and Preview) I can see in the bottom a nice variable table with Invoice/Client/Contact/Company

With all the variables neatly listed. I.e: $amount , $balance …

But I cannot find the variable codes for the credits.

My goal is to basically edit out the “credit number, credit date…” to simply change it for Delivery Note number, Delivery note date and so on!

I should need to edit the “table id=“entity-details” cellspacing=“0” dir=”$dir"></table" if i’m not mistaken!

Thanks for your time!


I believe the variables for credits are mainly the same as the ones for invoices.

Note: it may be easier to update the labels by settings custom labels on Settings > Localization.

You Sir are a godsend. Using Localization is just perfect for this!

I’m changing some files and getting ready to swap to Invoice Ninja, and a lot of that is thanks to your help and the efforts you all make with the community!

I was a little hesitant to pay for the “white label” but, from what I can see it’s a great way to give back a little to the developers, so once i’ve fully tested everything expect a new customer!
