Receipts can be printed, reprinted, emailed or resent in CenterPoint. CenterPoint allows you to email or print your receipts at the time you save the transaction entry. The receipt will be attached to an e-mail as a PDF file using the subject, message, and form type set in File > Preferences > Email Setup > Receipts. You can also choose to print/email or reprint/resend multiple receipts after transaction entry via the Processes > Sales > Print/Email Receipts screen. There are also additional options for reprinting/resending receipts defined in this document.

One Time Setup: Email Preferences

  1. Select File > Preferences > Email Setup > Email Setup.
  2. Select the Database tab.

This is the email address used for testing the SMTP settings and if there aren't any Receipts Sent "From" email addresses assigned under Setup > General > Email Addresses. See the Sent From and Optional Email Addresses section in this document for more information.

  1. Once the To/From Email Address is entered, the system will try to auto fill the Server and Port.

They can also let you know what you should select in the Require Login and Require secure connection (SSL\TLS) fields.
  2. Click Test. An email will be sent indicating the SMTP options have been set correctly. Verify that you received the CenterPoint: Testing SMTP Configuration email. See the Email Setup topic for additional information.

Note: If you didn't receive the email, then the settings in step 4 must be corrected.

  1. Once the email is received, select Save in the Preferences screen.

Optional Setup - Define a Default Subject and Message for Emailed Receipts

If you'd like to use the same email subject and message each time you email a receipt, it can be added to the preferences. Otherwise, when emailing a receipt, you'll have the opportunity to enter the subject and message at that time.

  1. Select File > Preferences > Email Setup > Receipts.
  2. Select the Database tab.

  1. Enter a default Subject and Message.

Note: To create paragraphs, press your Ctrl and Enter keys at the same time.

  2. Click Save.

Set Customer Email/Print Defaults

Prior to emailing a receipt to a customer, the customer file must include an email address and email form options on the Email/Print tab.

  • If your customers don't currently have email addresses on the Email/Print tab in their record , use the following step to update their records individually.
    1. Select Setup > Names > Names or Setup > Customers.
    2. Find the appropriate customer and click Edit.
    1. Click on the Email/Print tab. Use the Email Addresses and Options section on this tab to set up multiple email addresses where Receipts can be sent for this customer. You can also select how each email is to be sent, No Email, Send "To..." (directly to the recipient), Send "CC..." (as a carbon copy), or Send "BCC..." (as a blind carbon copy, for example, the person sending the email may want to enter their own email address so they have an audit trail of emails sent ). The Email Addresses and Options settings will be used to set the default image on the Email button on the Receipt entry screen. An envelope image with a check mark on it will mean the form will be emailed and an Envelope image with a cross-through on it will mean the form will not be emailed.

    The Print Options section on this tab for Print Receipts is used to determine if receipts should be printed for this name/customer. The Print Options settings will be used to set the default image on the Print button on the Receipts screen. A printer image with a check mark on it will mean the form will Print and a Printer image with a cross-through on it will mean the form will not print.

    1. Click Save.

    Set Sent From and Optional Email Addresses

    The Setup > General > Email Addresses menu selection is used to set the name and email address receipts are sent from. This menu allows you to select other Sent From email addresses for the different forms that you send via email.

    You can optionally add email addresses where messages and attached documents can be sent to; including internal staff, outside accountants, or other addresses that are not related to the name/customer the transaction is entered for. You can also select how each email is to be sent, directly to the recipient, as a carbon copy, or as a blind carbon copy or set a default "From" email address for each document.

    1. Select Setup > General > Email Addresses.

    1. Enter the Name, the Email Address, and select how receipts should be sent, No Email, Send "From..." (the default e-mail address the receipt is sent from), Send "CC..." (as a carbon copy), or Send "BCC..." (blind carbon copy).

    Printing or Emailing a Receipt During Entry

    When entering receipts, the Print and Email icons will display the defaults for the selected customer. For example, if you have a customer setup to email only, the Print icon will display a red X on it and the Email icon will have a green check mark on it.

    1. If a customer is setup to email their receipts, the system will automatically prompt you to email the receipt when the receipt is saved.
    2. You can change the print or email settings for a customer from the Receipts entry screens by clicking on the Print or Email icons. If you click on the Email icon, the settings from the Email/Print tab in Setup > Customers or Setup > Names > Names display. You can add additional recipient email addresses to the To, CC, or BCC boxes by separating the addresses with a semi-colon. You can also change the format of the form the receipt should be emailed on.
    3. Use the Print/Email Receipts screen to email a group of receipts after transaction entry.
