Article Summary

In order to edit your Application Settings, go to Settings -> Application settings.

  • It is advised that you setup the following preferences before you start using Elorus officially, for your convenience.


Various features related to invoicing, notifications/email and display parameters are setup from this tab.


Amounts Are

Set how Elorus calculates values in your Estimates, Invoices, Bills & Recurring documents. This is a default value that you can override for each document. For more details visit the related article here.

Numbering padding

Set up the total number of numerals in the document's number (e.g. "005" or "00005").

Auto-numbering of draft documents

If enabled, Elorus will always allocate a number when creating a new document. Disable this setting if you want your new documents to receive a number only after they're issued.

Force sequential numbering

If enabled, invoices & credit notes will only be issued if they follow a valid sequential numbering. See detailed instructions here.

By clicking Check numbering, Elorus checks the numbering of the organization's sales records and looks for mistakes. If there are any errors, it will display them in a list along with correction suggestions. If this happens often, we recommend that you select the "Force sequential numbering" function (after you fix the errors).
