BILLING: On-Demand Invoice Generators
What is an On-Demand Invoice Generator?
An Invoice Generator is basically an Invoice all ready to go - it just needs to be assigned to a Client. You can apply the Invoice Generator to a Client with just a few clicks.
You can also create a Recurring Generator which will continually generate an Invoice, or an Accumulating Generator, which acts as a "running tab" for your Client with varying amounts with each generation.

Creating an Invoice Generator is very much like creating an Invoice, but with a few key differences.

The Title field gives you the option to use Placeholders so that you can dynamically create a unique Invoice Title.
Generator Settings: Choose from the dropdown menu how the Invoice will be generated when the Generator is triggered. You can choose Open (will immediately be assigned to the Client), or Draft Status.
Publish Settings: Set a Relative Due Date for the Invoice to be paid, which will be determined based on the date it is generated.
Once you are finished creating your Invoice Generator, you can either Save as Open or Save as Draft.
Open: The Invoice Generator will be active and will generate Invoices as configured.
Draft: It will save the creation process for you to complete later, and will not generate Invoices.
