Outgoing InvoicesPermanent link for this heading

The outgoing invoice management allows to administer outgoing invoices. Using forms and processes, the outgoing invoice management can be customized to meet the needs of your organization.

Using a web service, a draft invoice can be uploaded to the Fabasoft Cloud from an ERP system and an approval process can be started. The approval status can be queried in the ERP system and changed or newly added documents can be transferred to the ERP system. The original invoice sent via the ERP system can in turn be transferred to the Fabasoft Cloud.

Note: Available in the superior edition.

    • When you collapse or expand processes, the state is saved.
  • The buttons “Add Entry” and “Search and Add” are displayed at the bottom border also for long lists and are therefore available without scrolling.
