Understanding invoice alert "Some Invoice lines are not ready"

  • Product: Alma



An invoice shows alert "Some Invoice Lines are not ready". This may happen when loading from EDI or other circumstance. What does it mean? 
We were able approve the invoice and export the payment information to our Finance system.


The development team advises that the status of the Invoice Line (i.e. "Not Ready") is an internal label in Alma, and can be ignored.

To explain:

The individual invoice lines do not have a workflow (as the invoice or PO Line does - e.g. "in Review", "Ready"). Such alerts do not interrupt any workflow. Whereas "Not Ready" indicates a workflow problem for a PO Line, such a "Not Ready" alert for the Invoice Line does not interrupt aworkflow.
