Invoices - Overview

Raise task invoices on the go using AroFlo Field

Updated on February 16th, 2024

The easiest way to access Task Invoices in AroFlo Field is via the Invoice List, but you can also access them via the Completed Tasks List or via a Task:

Open a final invoice for a task

Once a task has had a final invoice raised against it, tapping the task will automatically open the invoice:

  1. Navigate to your task list (Menu > Tasks)
  2. Tap the (Filter By) and select Closed tasks or search for the task you need
  3. Tap the task you need, which will have a label of Invoiced as opposed to Completed.

    Show this


If you tap a link back to the task, e.g. from the invoice itself, tap View Invoice to return to the final invoice.


Access created invoices for a task

Alternatively, to access a list of created invoices for a task, there are two ways you can do this:

  1. Tap the More tab on a task > Invoices, or
  2. Tap the Invoices tile.

Both of these options contain a counter telling you how many invoices are attached to the task.


Tap the invoice you wish to view from there.



Invoice Header

The invoice header tells you the invoice number and task name and shows whether the invoice is paid, unpaid, or has no costs on it.


Edit the status of the invoice if you need to and Save. Options are In ProgressPending Approval, and Approved.

For final invoices, changing the status to Pending Approval or Approved will mean the task will no longer be visible in your Completed Task list.


Invoice status explanations

Status Definition
In Progress The default status for all new invoices. You can add to or alter the invoice while it's in this status.
Pending Approval An optional status that allows for complex workflows (e.g. internal approval). You can add to or alter the invoice while it's in this status.

Invoice has been sent to the client. You can no longer add to or alter the invoice once it has this status. If you need to make changes, set the status back to In Progress or Pending Approval, and Save.

An invoice must be set to Approved before it can be pushed across to your accounting package.


 Also included is the option to email the invoice to your client.
