To start creating your invoice, follow these steps:
- Hover over “Invoices” in the top menu bar
- Click “Create Invoice”
Fill in pertinent information. “Invoice Date” must occur after “Invoice Period”. (Note the Invoice Date can be a date in the future.) We recommend leaving “Invoice Total” at $0.00 as Collaborati will automatically add the amount. Place a brief description of the invoice in the “Description”.
Example: If I am submitting October’s Accrual on 10/16/2013,
I can enter the Invoice Date as a date next month, 11/1/2013
And the Invoice Period as 10/1/2013 – 10/31/2013
You can enter a one line accrual which will include estimated fees and expenses, or you can enter a two line accrual to separate the fees and expense. Below is an example with two lines.
Select your “Matter”. For “Item Type” choose Total Fee. Enter the Date (within the Invoice Period) and also the Amount.
- Click on the “Add Item” button to finish the line item fee input.
Select your “Matter”. For “Item Type” choose Total Exp. Enter the Date (within the Invoice Period) and also the Amount.
- Click on the “Add Item” button to finish the line item expense input
