Q: When should I use the Create Separate Invoices for Each section?

A:  Utilize this option to determine how Customer Invoices should be separated.

When Invoices are processed, TempWorks will automatically separate them based on the selected criteria. If all the transactions for the Customer should be included on a single Invoice, the separating criteria should not need to be selected.

*Note- For each criteria selected, TempWorks will generate a separate Invoice resulting in multiple Invoices and emails being sent to the Customer.
