It is simple to operate;
▪when an Invoice has been sent (emailed) to a Client, it will then appear in the Invoice Page. AUB > Invoices A

▪Deleted Invoices: This option will only show deleted invoices and just as with any other option, it can be combined when making a search.
▪Show Only Selected Invoices: if some of the invoices need to be viewed for an easier review which cannot be refined (because they may not have a common filter to perform a search) then each invoice can be selected in the list and clicked Go while “Show Only Selected Invoices” option ticked. PM then shows only these invoices, therefore showing totals in the right hand side of “Advanced Search Bar.
▪Show Client Totals: This option brings up the results that are grouped by clients.
