To define your invoice settings click the Gear icon on the menu bar.
On the left hand side menu, go to Invoice Settings.
On the left side of the screen you will define your invoice layout.
Note: This setting only applies if you do not integrate with your financial solution.
You have two options regarding the invoice layout. You can choose the default layout of PSOhub or you can click Custom to create your own.
When you click Edit Logo you will find the specifications of the logo: the extensions jpeg, bmp and png are accepted as long as the file is no larger than 5mb.
Just below you will be able to set up your own e-mail body, including the selection of variables from your invoice, that will be sent to your client with the invoice.
Note: This setting only applies if you do not integrate with your financial software. If you do integrate, PSOhub will send the invoice information to your financial software ( which will in turn generate its own invoice) and it will also "press" the send button in your financial software.
Invoice fields to use
The down arrow of this option will allow you to copy one of the variables listed and paste it in the body of the email.
You can setup a default invoice sender; PSOhub will send the invoice using the email of that person for all invoices.
If this field is not filled, PSOhub will send the invoice using the email of the project manager defined in the project (left section of the project screen) to which belong the invoice.
If this field is not filled and there is no project manager in the project to which belong the invoice, for Automatic billing PSOhub will then send the invoice using the email of any user with the access level Admin. In the case of a manual invoice, PSOhub will use the email of the person sending the invoice.
In all cases the email sent towards your customer will be displayed as follows: John Doe - Company A <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
On the right side of the screen you will find:
Invoice organization information and defaults:
In this section you will:

Follow number: You can leave the default starting number or change it (e.g. change for the thousands so that your first invoice start at 1001).
Note: The invoice number is composed of the prefix, year and number. Each element will also be automatically separated by a hyphen i.e. INV-2020-1
In the bottom section of the screen you will find the list of labels on an invoice.
This section will allow you to change the labels that are currently on an invoice, i.e. the Summary page, the Specification page as well as the Footer and Note.

This section will allow you to define a second language for your invoices.
Select/change the language of either Language 1 or Language 2
To select a language or to change the language:
Click the pen icon and use the drop down arrow to select the language you want.
Once you have selected another language, and if there is a template language, PSOhub will ask if you want to use it. Keep in mind that you can modify the text in the template.
Click Yes if you do, click No if you would rather populate the fields yourself.
Note: PSOhub will display (in both columns) watermark text in English that will indicate to what information this label relates.
Once you are done hit the Save button.
If the language you want is not in the drop down list, select Other (last option in the list) and hit Save. You will then be able to populate the fields in that language.
