Print and Email Default settings allow you to preset email templates, email addresses and print layouts  across various areas in AroFlo. 

Defaults can be applied to invoices, quotes, tasks, purchase orders, compliance forms, supplier quotes and credit notes.

This feature may be useful if you want to:

 Set common subject text or body text in the emails you send, e.g. set emails with a purchase order to include 'Please find attached PO number [PO Number]'.

 Set email recipients, e.g. ensure your invoice emails are cc:'ed to your accounts department email address.

 Set default print layouts, e.g. set your sales invoices to use a simple layout and your project invoices to use a detailed layout.

titleYou can also set Client and Supplier specific defaults
