Material expenses are generated from invoices. While most of the purchasing process takes place on the desktop, you can also enter invoices for material you’ve purchased, or purchase orders you’ve redeemed, that day. If there are outstanding purchase orders, they’ll be listed on the top part of the screen:

Enter how many items you’ve purchased, and an invoice will be generated based on the purchase order:

You can also enter invoices manually in the invoice section on the lower part of the screen.

If you want to document the purchase for your client, you can upload the document by clicking on the upload icon:

If the store you purchased the material at sent you a PDF of your receipt, just upload it. Otherwise, you can take a picture with your phone and upload the picture.

As with the documents uploaded when jobs are added, the invoices you upload on the Abio Web App are available on the desktop, and can be included in the billing package when clients are invoiced.
