Creating an Invoice

Invoices can be created for each project and its many budgets. Invoicing in Productive is very simple.

In order to be able to raise an Invoice in Productive, you will first have to enable Invoicing in Settings:

There are 2 paths you can take when creating an Invoice in Productive.

  1. Billing > Invoices

  2. Any Project > Invoices tab

Billing > Invoices

The Billing > Invoices screen shows all of your Invoices that have been created on all projects. 

If you want to create a new Invoice from here, click on + Invoice and select the company for which you will be creating the invoice:

You will then be able to select which budget(s) you want to invoice:

Use filters to narrow your search:

Any Project > Invoices tab

You can create an Invoice for a specific project while on that project's dedicated page in Productive. 

You won't have to select a project after clicking the "+" button. Simply select a Budget and create the Invoice that way.

Invoicing budget percentage

Productive allows for creating partial invoices by entering the percentage of the budget that will be invoiced:

For example, let's say we want to invoice 20% of this budget. This will affect the quantities of the budget:

Invoicing using budget percentage can be chosen both for using 'by service' and 'by budget' methods:

After the invoice has been created, the Invoicing tab will show that 20% has been invoiced and 80% is left for invoicing:

Now, we can easily create an invoice with the remaining 80% that is left for invoicing.

By entering the amount greater than what is left for invoicing, a message will appear below:

By clicking on the Show details button, you will see what is being over-invoiced along with the amounts next to the budget and services (or budget only if the method 'by budget' is selected).
