Daily Close 1 Approval Codes

System Maintenance Menu -> Configure System Settings -> Customer Management Tab -> General Settings -> Daily Close 1 Approval Codes

This feature is activated when codes are setup in this table so that special V.I.P. customers can be assigned an approval required code in the Customer Information, so that all invoicing to that customer can be personally monitored before posting.
Invoices are checked when the Daily Close 1 is run and any requiring approval are put on Hold to delay posting in Daily Close 1 until the invoices are approved for billing and the Hold flag is released using Hold/Release Current Invoices or Daily Close Invoice Approval, or the hold period expires and the invoice is automatically released.

This feature does not apply to Credit Invoices that post through Credit Daily Close 1.

Until the invoice is approved, no prices or rates print on the invoice and a comment triggered by the Approval Code can be printed, with the exception of W.O. Invoices.
W.O. Invoices do print the amounts and totals for the service performed but the invoices will still be flagged On Hold for the Daily Close Invoice Approval alert.

If Crystal or Jasper forms are used to print the invoice before it is approved, the comment associated with the Daily Close 1 Approval Code replaces the document title in the header and also prints in the footer.
After it is release, a final invoice with pricing is automatically printed during the Daily Close 1 posting.

Invoices for customers requiring approval can be monitored using the Daily Close Invoice Approval utility.

Note: This processing cannot be utilized if your firm posts invoices using the Field Ticket processing that can be activated from the Invoice Parameters.
