How do i detach an invoice from a billing event?

Detaching an invoice allows you to remove an invoice from a billing event and manually add it to a new billing event, when ready.

Institution administration have oversight over this process and determine whether or not core managers have the ability to detach invoices from billing events.

Note: An invoice may NOT be detached from a billing event if any the following criteria apply:

  • An invoice has been marked Paid or Partially Paid.

  • The billing event has a status of File Sent, which indicates that all invoices on that billing event have already been sent to an institutional ERP for final processing.

STEP 1: Find the appropriate invoice.

From the Billing tab, view a list of existing billing events that have a status of either "Billing Initialized" or "Draft", and find the billing event that contains the invoice(s) you would like to remove. Click on the appropriate Invoices link to bring up a list of all invoices on that billing event. (Figure 1)
