Invoice Items from project
Of course you can add these Items to the invoice. Also, maybe you don’t want to invoice the full project or you don’t want to add all items to your invoice. You can do it al following:
First, generate an invoice for a project with items. in this example we used as a billing method flat project amount but it works with all project billing methods. Might be that for some billing methods you won’t see the following screen since for hourly billing there’s the invoice wizard. Anyway, you’ll see that all items will be added to invoice. We’ll change which items and quantity later.
Now, Generate the invoice and you’ll see all items added to the invoice. Now you can edit the quantity of the items or even delete the items from the invoice. The system will recognize it and count it at the project correctly.
As you go back to the project you’ll see a new column “invoiced” where you can see how many items you already invoice from this project. If you converted a estimate to a project, you’d see how many items you estimated.
Please note that the invoice needs to be activated as for draft invoices the systems do not count the item sin the invoice against the project items.
