i generate invoice each day after I complete the jobs and then copy them to pdf file and send the invoice out email ,after invoice is created it will show a balance next to customers name when you pull up your customer list.

On clients that pay in advance for several services it will show a positive balance and then when that hits 0 I know its time to bill those again

Wait. Backup. What??? Have you read the manual?

Here is how to create invoices:
  1. Schedule jobs (I do this once at the beginning of the year and once when I add a new customer)
  2. Mark jobs complete (I do this at the end of the day)
  3. Generate invoices (I do this at the end of the month)
