Approving Mobile Invoices in Total Office Manager
Invoices created in Aptora Mobile will be designated in Total Office Manager as a new type called Mobile Invoice. Mobile Invoices and payments accepted in Aptora Mobile do not directly affect Accounts Receivable (A/R), Income, COGS, or other accounts.
Mobile Invoices must first be approved and converted into a standard Invoice in Total Office Manager. All Invoice validation remains the same, including preferences such as those requiring a Salesman, Department, or Sales Tax Item.
To approve a Mobile Invoice, simply open the Mobile Invoice in Total Office and save it.
You may make changes to this Invoice as you would any normal Invoice.
Once a Mobile Invoice has been approved all financial accounts (A/R, Income, COGS, etc.) will be affected as usual.
An Invoice that was created from Aptora Mobile will always have the “Mobile Invoice” in the security stamp at the bottom left of the form.
Aptora Mobile users can make use of the Signature Capture feature to capture an image of a customer’s signature for use when signing off on Work Orders, Invoices, or Payments.
Simply click the “Signature Capture” icon for the Invoice you wish to capture the signature for and then allow the customer to use your device to write out their signature with their finger or a stylus.
Signatures captured in Aptora Mobile can be viewed on and used on printed Invoices in Total Office Manager.
To view a captured Invoice signature, open the related Invoice and click Menu | Show Signature. A form will appear displaying the signature if one is available on that Invoice.
