Invoice specification
In the invoice specification you can set the following:
Currency: billing currency
Invoice debtor: the billing debtor
Invoice interval, type and Invoice interval no.: this matrix sets how often the system should bill this subscription.
For example: Setting the interval to “Month” and “No.” to 1 would have the system bill once every month. The exact date is calculated by providing a value in the Last invoice date.
Another example: Setting the interval to “Year” and “No.” to 2 would have the system bill 2 times every year.

You can set the defaults for various invoice fields. Select the + buttons to insert generic data, for example FROMDATE – TODATE as shown in the example.
Please note that Job name suffix is required.
Invoice template ID: since you cannot set any layout defaults (such as Show activity lines, Show phases) you can use an existing invoice layout as a default by filling in the invoice ID in this field.
