How do I get feedback on an invoice before I approve it?

This page details how to use the "submit for review" feature on invoices.

 

Why should I send invoices for review?

Users have the ability to send invoices to other members of their company for review. 

This review process gives user the opportunity to receive audible feedback on line items or other parts of the invoice that might need a second pair of eyes. 

 

Submit an invoice for review

The instructions below toggle between 2 user views: User 1-the person submitting the invoice for review, and User 2-the person responsible for reviewing the invoice and submitting it back to user 1 for approval.

  1. User 1: Create an invoice and post it to a matter. Do this by clicking the Post button from the top banner menu in the invoice screen - the Submit for Review button will not appear 
  2. User 1: Click the Submit for Review button on the top banner menu.

  3. User 1: In the Send for Review screen, select if you want to send this invoice to a user or group, then use the Recipient drop-down menu to select a user or group.
    Add an internal comment so the reviewer knows exactly what he/she/they need to review. 
    Click Send

    Note: The person that receives this review notification will receive an email notifying them they have a pending item. Additionally, they will not be able to approve or reject the invoice, they can only comment on it.
     
  5. User 2: In the next screen, click into the invoice to review the specifications on the request, then click the Submit Review button. You can also click this button from the Requests to Review table.
