    This question is relevant for a site who doesn't export to ERP (Acquisition Configuration Menu > Other Settings > invoice_skip_erp = true)

    Invoices are in status of "Waiting for Payment", and require Voucher Number before they can be closed.

    Is it possible to bypass / skip this step?


    To skip the step and close invoices automatically use this parameter:

    Acquisition Configuration Menu > Other Settings > handle_invoice_payment = false

    Conversely, if the "handle_invoice_payment parameter" is set to "true", the invoice reaches the payment stage so that the institution itself can manage the payment of the invoice. Adding Voucher Number and saving will cause the invoice to close.
