Configuring the Invoice Date

    The Invoice Date configuration disallows service providers from generating invoices a set number of days older than or greater than the Posting Date. There are two controls:

    • Can not be older than [x] days from Posting Date: For example, if the posting date is June 30, 2016, you can specify that the invoice date cannot be earlier than June 15.In that case you will enter 15 in the text box.
    • Can not have a Future Date greater than [X] days from Posting Date: For example, if today is June 30, you can specify that the invoice date cannot be any date past July 7. In that case you will enter 7 in the text box. Do not select this option if you do not wish to put a date limit on a vendor submitting invoices with dates in the future.
