The mass invoicing feature allows you to create invoices based on invoicing material that hasn't yet been invoiced. The material to be invoiced can be limited with search filters, for example, for a certain time period or for a certain client, and one or several invoices can be generated at once.

What is mass invoicing?

Mass invoicing gives you the option of creating multiple invoices at once, from a selected time period or selected client and project.

This feature allows you to manage large amounts of invoicing data and create multiple invoices at once.

How to activate mass invoicing

You can activate mass invoicing to be available for all users from your settings, or for project specific settings go to the project card.

Settings

Settings > Feature Settings > Invoicing & Bills

Mass invoicing can be activated or deactivated from Taimer's settings.

  • Click on Feature settings and Invoicing & Bills

  • Activate "Allow mass invoice creation"

Users who have been granted permission to edit invoices will see a new Mass invoicing icon in the top right corner of the Invoicing list view.

Note! Mass invoicing is allowed in the default settings.

Project Card

If mass invoicing is allowed in the company's settings, it is still possible to determine for each project, whether the invoicing material allocated to the project in question will be included in mass invoicing or not.

If you do not want the project's invoicing materials to be processed in mass invoicing, deactivate "Show in mass invoicing".

Project grouping: Specify whether to create separate invoices or a combined invoice for the selected projects, with the same invoicing address for the project.

Hour entries grouping: Specify the presentation of hours on the invoice. Hours can be displayed all together, grouped by user, task or per employee and task or hour entries.

Expenses grouping: Specify whether to show all travel expenses in one, or daily allowance, mileage and other expenses specified, or daily allowance and mileage in one but other expenses specified.

Sales quote grouping: You can specify whether or not sales invoices display sales quote description lines from the sales quote.

You can also specify whether to include the hour report and report of the invoicing history as attachments on the invoices you generate.

By clicking on the Create invoices button in the top right corner, you can specify whether the invoices change their status to "Pending" or "Draft".

Create Invoices: Invoices receive invoice number and their status will be "Pending"

Create as draft: Invoices do not receive invoice number and their status will be "Draft". These pre-invoices should be converted into "official invoices" to get invoice numbers before they are sent to clients.
