Using the Invoices Lists

Elite Only.png

This article is an overview of the Invoices Lists. This applies to the Practice Activity - Invoices tab (available to FYI admins and user groups with Practice permissions enabled), and also when viewing the Client - Invoices and Job - Invoices tabs.

Invoices Lists Views

At the top of lists is the View Selector, used to display the Views that can be selected for that list. Default views appear at the top of the View selector with a divider, followed by all the saved views.

A View must have been set to Available For - Lists to be displayed in the View Selector. Views can be saved with custom Columns and Filters, and used in Custom Automations. Refer to Managing Views

When there are more than 10 Views for the list, the drop-down will display a scroll bar.

The default view for Invoices lists is, "All". This displays all invoices that have not been deleted, void, or paid.

You can use the Unhide Deleted and Voided invoices button to display all Invoices with either Delete or Void status. Refer below to Show Deleted and Voided Invoices.

You can use the Unhide paid invoices to display all Invoices with a Paid status. Refer below to Show Paid Invoices.

Depending on the settings for your practice, the view you select in a particular list may be the default for the rest of the session, or when you log out and log in again. Refer to Sticky Views.

Refreshing the Invoices List

If you need to refresh the Invoices list, to show any updated information, click Refresh.

Scrolling the Columns Left and Right

Where many columns are displayed in the selected view, you can use the scroll bar at the bottom to scroll the list left and right.

Using the Invoices List Columns

You can use the column headings to sort that column and use the options to pin or auto-size columns.

From the column headings, you can also filter that column and include or exclude columns in the list. 

This functionality is the same as the Documents list, refer to Sorting and Filtering Documents Lists and Adding/Removing/Moving Columns in the Documents Lists.

List Icon

Hover over a column heading and click the List icon.

The options are used to change the Filters for that column, the Autosize columns, or to change which Columns are included in the list.

Initially, this displays the Filters settings for that column. Refer to Selecting Filters from the Column Heading in Sorting and Filtering Documents Lists.

3258_Invoices_List_Type_Filter.gif

When clicking the List icon, the option that was last selected for any of the columns (that is, the Filters, Autosize Columns or Columns) is re-displayed.

To change the columns that are included in the list from the menu in any of the column headings, click the Columns option. Refer to Adding/Removing/Moving Columns in the Documents Lists.

Autosize Columns

Click the Autosize Columns icon to display the options to pin that column or to set Autosize.

3260_Invoices_List_Autosize_Columns.gif

All or any columns can be set to Autosize This Column. This expands the column width(s) to automatically fit the contents. 

You can also select Autosize All Columns to set the widths of all the columns currently included in the list to automatically fit the contents.

Unless you save the view with the column(s) set to Autosize, leaving the list or selecting a different view resets the column(s) back to the default width.

Pin Columns

One or more columns can be set to Pin Column so it is "pinned" to the left or right of the list. This keeps the pinned column(s) displayed when scrolling left or right so they are always visible. This is similar to the Freeze Panes feature in an Excel spreadsheet.

When any columns are pinned, they display with a vertical line in the list.

Change Column Width

You can drag the edge of the column heading to increase or decrease the column width.

Columns and Filters Tabs

On the left-hand side of the lists are the Columns and Filters tabs.

Click the Columns or Filters to expand the tab and display the selections and options for each of these. 

Click on Columns or Filters again to collapse the tabs.

Resetting the List

When any columns have been sorted or filtered, or any changes made to the columns that are shown, or if you have entered any search criteria, you can reset the list to the default settings of the selected View by selecting Reset View from the View Tools.

You can also select consecutive Invoices in the list by pressing the Shift key on your keyboard and then clicking the first and the last.

Selecting Multiple Invoices in the List

You can also click the checkbox in the column heading to select multiple Invoices. This function is useful if you have filtered the list to show only what you want to select, for example, if you want to Approve certain Invoices.

3264_Invoices_List_Select_All.gif

Clicking the checkbox in the column heading selects the first 50 Invoices that are displayed in the list. You can then use the action toolbar to bulk Approve invoices.

If required, you can click on the checkbox next to any individual Invoices to de-select these.

To cancel all the selections, click the checkbox in the column heading or click Cancel.

Select All

You can use the drop-down next to the checkbox in the column heading to select the option Select all.

2301_List_Select_50_or_Select_All.gif

This selects all the Invoices currently displayed in the list. Up to 10,000 Invoices can be selected in this way. When Invoices have been selected in this way, you can then de-select individual Invoices. 

To cancel all the selections, click the checkbox in the column heading or click Cancel.

Note: For Invoices, Select All is for Approval and cannot be used to open the invoice for selected items. 

Actions in the Toolbar

When one or more Invoices are selected in the list, the buttons display in the toolbar.

Any invoices with the status Draft will have the action "Approved" available. 

Any invoices with the status of Draft in Xero, Awaiting Payment or Paid the "Open Invoice" action will be available. 

Any invoices with the status of Sync Exception will display the "Resubmit" action in the toolbar. 

Displaying the Toolbar as a Pop-up Menu

You can also display the tools as a pop-up menu. To display the toolbar functions as a pop-up menu right-click over an invoice in the list.

You can also copy a value from the pop-up menu. Copy copies the value that the mouse is currently over when you right-click (for example the Invoice Number) to the clipboard. Right-click over the value and select Copy from the pop-up menu. Ctrl+C can also be used to copy a value.

The Open in new tab option is only available when right-clicking on either the Client Group, Client, or Job links. Once clicked, the corresponding Client - Invoices Workspace will be opened in a new browser tab. 

Show Deleted and Voided Invoices

You can use the Unhide Deleted and Voided invoices button on the Invoices or Clients - Invoices lists to include all Invoices with the status of Delete or Void in the list.
