    Workday Customer Invoice Proposals


    The Workday Invoice Proposal is a comprehensive solution designed to streamline and automate the invoice management process for Project Time and Expense projects. The invoice proposal aims to address the challenges and inefficiencies often associated with manual invoice processing, such as human errors, time-consuming tasks, and lack of visibility.

    For T&M contracts, a billing specialist has the option to create an invoice proposal prior to creating an invoice. This feature allows the billing specialist to edit the transaction lines similar to the Manage Project Billing Transactions (MPBT) module. Once the invoice proposal is approved by the Project Manager (PM) and Principal (if applicable), it will automatically be converted into a Customer Invoice with an Approved status. Lastly, the billing specialist will need to process a final print run prior to sending the invoice to the client.

    Process Flow


    Prior to creating an invoice proposal, the status of transactions to be billed must be reviewed and changed from Awaiting Review to Ready to Bill. Only Ready to Bill transactions can be added to an invoice proposal or invoice.

    Note: Auto-Submit Invoices for Approval must be selected on the Billing Schedule Header before creating an Invoice Proposal. If not selected, the PM/Principal will have to approve twice. 

    Step-by-Step Guide:

    Edit Billing Schedule Header (T&M)

    Note: If a transaction's hours or amounts are modified in MPBT, the change must be submitted to be recognized in the system.
