Previewing invoices

If you want to see how an invoice will appear once printed, you need to preview it. See Emailing, previewing and printing invoices.

To open the Invoices page, go to the Sales menu and choose Invoices.

Invoices option on the sales menu

The Invoices page lists all of the invoices you’ve entered into MYOB Essentials. For each invoice, the invoice number, customer, date issued, date due, total amount andamount due is listed. To find an invoice, you can use the search feature or filter the list by type.

Every invoice has one of the following statuses:

  • Paid — for invoices that have been paid in full.
  • Not Paid — for invoices that haven't been paid.
  • Overdue — for all invoices that are overdue.
  • Return — for all customer returns and credits.

The icons in the Sent column indicate whether the emails were sent successfully or not. Hover over the icon to get more information.


Tick icon Sent

The email was sent successfully.

Printer icon Printed

The invoice has been printed, but not emailed.

Hourglass icon Pending

The email has been sent, but confirmation that it was sent successfully hasn’t been received yet.

Warning icon Bounced

The email was not sent. It was either rejected, or the email address is invalid (incorrect or doesn’t exist).
