Including Employee Name with Billable Item Detail on Invoice

  • Question
  • Updated 1 year ago
We bill our clients for Employee Time spent on a job and use the Billing function through time sheets. 

However on the invoice issued to the client, as part of the line item description, we want to include a column that identifies which employee the time being billed is for, without having to enter the employee name manually into the invoice. 

There could be multiple employee time billed to a client so we want to be able to show, for example:

Bill Smith, 1/8/18 - 31/8/18, 80 hours, $1,000.
Jim Bobb, 1/8/18 - 14/8/18, 40 hours, $2,000 etc. 

Is there a way to automatically populate the Employee name into the invoice? 

Thank you

Yes, there is a way to automate that. I can help you to write a tool to allow you to created invoice from selected timesheets and the employee name and description can show up in the description field or in a custom field in the invoice template. As the result, the print out invoice will have the piece of information that you want.


have a look at this app , this will show all what you require , we did this for a Perth law firm

Hi Gemma - I wrote a document some time ago for a client to achieve these sorts of results (wow - just checked and it was 10 years ago!)...  you can access the file here...

Hope this helps!  cheers Linda
