    Types of BUSY Invoice Format

    Two types of invoice documents will be displayed: a) Standard Invoice and b) Advanced Invoice.

    BUSY Standard Invoice Format

    The standard invoice format is the default layout provided by BUSY software. Use this standard format to set up basic details like company information, address, terms, bank details, or other fundamental information.

    Configuration of BUSY Standard Invoice Format

    Values will automatically populate specific fields based on the standard invoice configuration settings. The configuration for Standard Invoice is Basic and Simple. Here’s a step-by-step guide: 

    • The header includes company details, party details with billing and shipping, voucher no./date, etc.

    If you want to configure anything in Standard format:

    Case 1: If you don’t need the billing and shipping details, you can disable them. To do this:

    1. Navigate to Administration > Configuration > Invoice/Document Printing > Standard.
    2. You can turn off the billing and shipping details.

    After turning off these details, you can save the settings to see that only the party details and invoice information are printed. The billing and shipping details were turned off in the configuration settings. To get started, download Busy software today.

    Case 2:

    • Add any extra column like discount, or item extra info
    • Remove or adjust specific columns like CGST and SGST. 

    The preview will reflect these changes, showing the updated format with the correct fields and alignment. Once you’ve made the necessary adjustments, save the configuration and preview the invoice to ensure it meets your requirements.

    Types of Fields

    1. Static Field—The static field is a text field where you can input any text you need. Whatever you write in this text field will appear on the invoice.
    2. Dynamic Field—However, dynamic fields work differently. The values in these fields come from the back-end BUSY data. For instance, details like the party’s GSTIN, PAN number, or item rates are examples of dynamic fields.
