Unallocate a Payment and Allocate to Another Invoice

Modified on Tue, 09 Apr 2024 at 03:03 PM

When a client makes a payment, the payment is automatically allocated to the most logical outstanding invoice, but it may not be the invoice the client intended to pay. You can "unallocate" a payment and either leave it unassigned, or allocate it to the correct invoice.


Tip: Unallocated payments are the same as a credit or "Cash on account." They can be manually allocated to an outstanding invoice, or allocated automatically to the next invoice that is created.


How Do I Unallocate a Payment and Allocate it to Another Invoice?
