Additional Information

When uploading invoices, before processing them, there are two more buttons available:

  • Delete Files – To delete individual, group (compact or not) of invoices;
  • Process Files – To process individual, group (compact or not) of invoices;

You may select the invoices to delete or process in one of the following manners:

  • One-by-one: selecting individual invoices with just the simple click;
  • Compact groups: selecting the first invoice within the group, then holding the Shift key whilst slicking on the last invoice within the selectable group;
  • Non-compact groups: by selecting invoices using a combination of the previous two techniques;

Note: You may deselect individual invoices by holding the Ctrl key and then clicking on the desired invoice to deselect.

Note: You may undo the whole selection by clicking outside the invoices area.

Note: You may not delete invoices that are under the effect of the Invoice Grouping feature.

Note: Latent invoice/(s) deletion may cause them to be posted within the Cloud Storage, but not within the accounting system.
