The following pop up box will appear.

Simply fill in the following details

  • Description. The description will be populated automatically from any information your engineers have entered on-site. However, you can overwrite this information or add further information if required. This information will appear on the face of the invoice.
  • Customer reference. This is pre-populated from the Job ID.

Once all the fields are complete, press the orange Raise invoice button.

2) Check your settings

Ensure you have Clearbooks configured by going to the Invoice screen, clicking on More then Application settings.

Click on the Clearbooks ( Clearbooks icon ) icon.

This will ensure the export file is in the correct format for Clearbooks Accounts (csv format). Then click Update defaults.

3) Export your invoices from Okappy

Now click Export to Clearbooks from the same popup menu.

This will create your invoices file which will be saved down to your default downloads folder on your computer.

At this stage, you can open the file if you want to make any changes or leave the export file as is.

You should be able to see the invoices you've uploaded along with the invoice details.
