Prepare your draft invoices (proforma)
How to create a draft invoice ?
1 - Go to the tab "My invoices".
When the shipments are checked, they appear in the list of shipments to invoice
2 - Use the filters
Select the shipments by customer, date, loading/delivery sites, labels.
Otherwise, use the search bar directly (e.g.: search by shipper reference)
3 - Select the shipments you wish to integrate into the draft by checking the box on the left
The total amount of the selected TOs for the same customer is displayed at the bottom left
Click on next
Choose among the following options:
one invoice per TO
group the TOs in one invoice
add the selected TOs to an existing draft
Click on "create a draft invoice"
4 - The invoice is created in "draft" status in the invoice list
When creating the draft invoice, you will find a pdf proforma at the bottom of the page. To know everything about the proforma, it's over here!
Customize your invoices
1 - Modify the information related to the description of the transport
Here is the information that appears by default per shipment on your invoice
For goods transports:
For rental transports:
To edit each draft individually, unfold the transports and click on the description. You can then modify the description field freely.
2 - Use the invoice templates
To apply the same description template to several invoices at once, use the invoice templates.
With this feature, you can standardize your invoices for several customers at once or each customer individually.
To apply a template to your draft invoice, use the "invoice templates" drop-down list and choose the desired template
3 - Add lines or a fuel surcharge
Once you have added your shipments, you can also add general lines to your draft invoice
You have 2 choices:
add fully customizable lines
use the "fuel surcharge" feature: find out how to use it by clicking here!
Adding a customizable line allows you to include a new invoice item
4 - Grouping invoice lines
You can choose to re-group the shipments of an invoice into one line via the "Group shipments" > "into one line" button
The rates of these shipments will then be added together in this single invoice line:
If a shipment contains several price lines, they will all be added together in this line
For the fuel indexation: the index amounts in each transport will also be added in this line
With this grouping, no product code will be sent to your external invoicing software
Once these lines are grouped, a single line "Transport of the month" will group all the transports of the invoice; you can modify this line again by changing the description manually
With each modification, your draft PDF (at the bottom of the page) is automatically updated. You can download this pdf at any time to check it before finalizing the invoice.
