A new fast tab called Invoicing archives has been added as the last tab on the Invoice grouping form. This tab contains the below options which the user could Mark or unmark to include or exclude documents/reports onto the invoice as an archive.

The options available as check boxes are as below:

  • Billing schedule external documents.
  • Expense journal external documents.
  • Expense report.
  • Expense report external documents.
  • Invoice proposal external document.
  • Parent project external documents.
  • Project external documents.

  • Vendor invoice external documents.

When the user selects the checkbox, then that document type will be zipped and archived on to the azure storage as defined in document management.

Note – The documents/reports that are attached to the invoice proposal would be archived in the azure storage, while archiving the files are compressed upto 70% of its original size.
