How do I track clients with outstanding invoices?

The “Outstanding Invoices” page provides a summary of all clients who have an outstanding balance. The table displayed provides details of the outstanding balance, the number of open invoices and the date the client last made a payment.

Before you start

  • In order to access the Outstanding Invoices page you need to have a role which has one (or more) of the following permissions:
    • A role that includes the “Financial – debtors” permission
    • A role that includes the “Financial – full access to financial”  permission
    • A role that includes the “Full Access” permission
  • If you don’t have the appropriate permissions, please contact your Animana administrator if they can assign the permissions to your account via  > General Settings > Role Management.
