Ability To Change Default Filename Of Downloaded PDF Invoices

Shane Board shared this idea 6 years ago
Completed

Sometimes, I like to email clients a PDF copy of an invoice, the default filename of downloadable PDF's I do not think are very descriptive.

Currently if you download a PDF invoice it will be named "Invoice-XXXXX" but I think it would be better if the default name was changable to something like "MyCompany-Invoice-XXXXX".

Hi,

I'm pleased to advise that in v5.1 this was implemented. The following language strings can be used to customise the Invoice PDF and Quote PDF filenames:

$_LANG['invoicefilename'] = "Invoice-";

$_LANG['quotefilename'] = "Quote-";

Yes an editable field for the invoice filename would save a me a lot of time - I currently rename them all to 'xxxx - client name'.

Same for Quotes - even a simple translation of the quote subject line would be great instead of Quote1234.pdf

this is a must; as more and more companies use it and chances are the clients have invoices from multiple companies, duplicates can exist for those clients and billing might go wrong; as a host you want to make it as easy as possible for your client; so adding the company name before the invoice would be a great idea. I fully support the idea above.
