2788486 - Scheduled Project Invoice Request Is Not Created

Symptom

You have created a project from a sales order. For the sales order you have created an invoice schedule under the tab Pricing and Invoicing. The invoice schedule date is set to DD.MM.YYYY but the system did not create the scheduled project invoice request.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Project Management.
  2. Go to the view Invoice Preparation.
  3. Select the subview Project Invoice requests 
  4. In the advanced search, filter for the relevant Reference Sales Order ID.

You do not get any results for this sales order as no scheduled project invoice request has been created.

Cause

This can have various reasons. One of them is a setting in the business configuration you might not be aware of.

Resolution

  1. Go to the work center Business Configuration.
  2. Go to the view Overview.
  3. Search for the activity "Project Invoice Request Creation Settings with Invoice Schedule".

Here you can define how many days in advance or in the future the project invoice request should be created.
If you have defined 5 days, the scheduled project invoice request will be created 5 days after the date maintained in the invoice schedule of the sales order.
