Estimates & Invoices
You have the option to set your starting invoice number. Most of our customers start with the default, but if you have a numbering sequence that works for your company, you can set the series of numbers you prefer. Whatever number you pick, estimates and invoice numbers will go up sequentially from there. Note: If you plan to integrate with Quickbooks online, we will show the Quickbooks number sequence in the webapp. On the mobile application, we will show both FieldsPulse and Quickbooks.
You also have the option to change the terminology. If estimate does not translate in your business, you can change the name to Quote, Bid or Proposal.
Make sure your currency and tax rates are set up correctly.
Set up invoice cost basis for profit margin analysis, create markup percentages and set up default commission calculation method.

You will then see a list of notification options with 3 ways to receive them:
Email: Pretty straight forward, but we will send you an email alert when the notification is triggered.
In App: You will receive the notifications within the bell icon on the top navigation bar of the applications.
Push: These notifications will push to your mobile device once you have the mobile app downloaded.
Each user within a FieldPulse account has to set up these preferences for themselves. and by default they are 'off'.
That’s it! You just successfully set up your FieldPulse account. While this guide follows many of our best practices, not all companies are set up the same way. If you find something that isn’t working for you, let us know! We have a team of customer success specialists on hand to help!
