Go to the 'Lines' FastTab and in a new line select 'Comment' in the 'Type' field:

Enter a 'Description' that you want to appear on the subsequent Invoices that are generated:

The Placeholder Summary page will appear:

For example, to generate an Invoice with a description of “For the period from 01/04/2020 to 30/04/2020” (when the “Document Date” field will be 01/04/2020) enter your 'Description' text as follows:
“For the period from: %1 to %3”
This will then appear as follows on the Sales Invoice that is created:

Please note: This assumes the Document Date of the Sales Invoice is 01/04/2020.
