Work Orders allow other chargeable operations and events to be added to a project which are not linked to time in the timeline. Work Orders are typically assigned to an individual to be carried out and will appear on the To Do list, NOT in the timeline.

Use Project Work Orders to track multiple costs and only list one line in the Invoice
E.g. you have a few Shipping/Courier costs:
23.03. 1x Shipping=> 10,- €
30.03. 1x Shipping=> 15,- €
04.04. 1x Shipping=> 12,- €
10.04. 1x Shipping=> 25,- €
Add these Services to a new Project Work Order. Name it: Shipping Costs.
In the Print Designer it shows every individual service in Rows.
Now if you add a fix price 62,- for the Project Work Order. => in the Print Designer it shows only the fixed price, no individual lines.
So also in the Invoice the Project Work Order will appear as ONE line. NO details.
Into the NOTE you can write: Shipping Costs from 23.03.-10.04.
In the Financial Report the ‘fixed price will show up as Invoiced and the other elements as booked/used.
