Invoice Type


All items to be charged will be shown from the individual Activity records.

With this setting there are summary options available to you. When creating “Activity Codes”, you can set a code to have a summary bill setting of:

  • None – e.g. If 6 wormer records of “Equest” to be charged it shows all 6 items on an invoice.
  • Code – In our example, the 6 records are totalled to show a value for “Equest”

All records for an Activity Type are totalled and appear as one line on an invoice.
