The Billing Page
From the left-hand panel, click Billing. The Billing page appears.
Invoice Batches are a group of financial units (in this case invoices) that are actioned at the same time, rather than immediately. It is a detailed listing of services rendered and payments owed by customers within a specified billing period. Once an invoice batch is created, you can generate invoices.

Note: Tickets are listed in each invoice batch. Once an invoice batch has been saved, its tickets can no longer be edited (you cannot change their status from 'Closed' to 'Open') nor can they be billed again (unless you delete the invoice batch).
Invoices detail the products and services provided to your customer. It is defined by its associated contract. Invoices are ordered by invoice number, along with their creation date, affiliated customer, batch name (if applicable), and status (Draft, Sent, Exported, Paid, and Refunded). See all of your service items, tickets, time entries, and expenses on the invoice. Once you've generated an invoice, you can export it to your favorite accounting software.

We've added statuses to invoices to simplify invoice management and tracking! Statuses include Draft, Exported, Sent, Paid, and Refunded. You can see the invoice status under the Status column on the Billing page and on the invoice itself — from where you can manually change the invoice status.
- Draft: The invoice is in progress and has not been sent nor exported.
- Exported: The invoice has been exported to your integrated accounting software.
- Sent: The invoice has been sent (emailed) to the recipient.
- Paid: The invoice was emailed and payment has been made.
- Refunded: The full invoice amount has been refunded.
