You can create invoices automatically from Google Sheets in a few easy steps. It is simple to use Portant as a free Google Sheets invoice template which contains all kinds of different elements including your logo, unique invoice numbers, payment terms and contact information. After you've opened Portant Workflow, select your Google Sheet, then connect a Google Docs invoice template, customise your blank invoice template with column tags, attach it to an email and finally click 'Start automation', and voila!, you’ve automated your invoicing from Google Sheets!
We know how painful and monotonous it can be to copy and paste invoice data into invoice templates, double check all the information is correct, save it as a pdf and then send the invoice to your customers. That’s why we’ve come to the rescue.
With Portant you can connect a Google Sheet to an invoice template, click a few buttons and invoices will be magically generated and sent whenever you need to. You can also customise the email and who it's sent from (e.g email@example.com). It's easy to place your invoicing on autopilot.
To select your Google Sheet - first log in via your Google account and then authorise Portant to view your Sheets. You can get started by copying this template:
When you connect your Google Sheet, you can replace our invoice template with your own if you have one prepared already or edit our one. Also, you can connect multiple documents (e.g. if you need to send a contract with an invoice 😀)
Open the document block and add tags into your invoice template. You can format the tags and the data from your Google Sheet will be inserted using the same format (bold, italic, colour etc)
You can use data grouping to insert multiple rows from your Google Sheet into the same invoice (e.g. if your line items are split on separate rows in your Google Sheet)
Open the email block and customise how you'd like to share your invoice. You can also edit the email invoices are sent from (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) Then click 'Start automation' and test your workflow. Your Invoices will be stored in a folder made in your Google Drive, which can be edited in the 'Outputs' tab.

Google Forms can create invoices if used in conjunction with Portant. Portant enables invoices to be generated automatically any time someone responds to a form, and then even email the documents automatically to a client, the form recipient or anyone...
We only recommend using Google Forms to create simple invoices because it is difficult to create invoices with multiple line items without having a clumsy question structure in the form. For this reason, we only think you should use Google Forms for invoices if you only have one item to invoice for.
If you would like to create a pdf (e.g. of an invoice) from a Google Form, we have a template to help you here: https://app.portant.co/google-forms-to-pdf
