|Orderline & Deadline|
Snapshots populate Unprocessed Invoices.
Items whose production time expires are added to the Unprocessed Invoice, using the valid price for the customer at the time of the snapshot.
Prices and quantity are subject to change at all times, therefore we use snapshot time (order deadline) to lock the two.
An Invoice may have two or more items with different production times, therefore, an Unprocessed Invoice is subject to change, from one day to another, as items with different production times are added on different days.
Monday’s snapshot locks production times and generates Unprocessed Invoices as follows:
0 for Tuesday
1 for Wednesday
2 for Thursday
So, an Unprocessed Invoice generated for Thursday on Monday only has the 2’s. On Tuesday, we will add the 0’s and on Wednesday the 1’s.
To see what is locked from customers go to Finance > Unprocessed Invoices.
