✨ Invoicing from Tempo with Clerk Invoices

Hi, Community! πŸ‘‹

At Hello Clerk we build financial apps for the Atlassian ecosystem. In this series of articles, we are sharing our experience in automating various financial tasks in Jira.

In today's fast-paced business environment, efficient and accurate invoice creation is crucial for organizations to maintain financial stability and foster positive client relationships. Many businesses, especially those in the professional services sector, rely on Jira and Tempo Timesheets to keep track of worklogs and billable hours. 

To further enhance this process, the Clerk Invoices app offers a seamless solution for generating invoices, simplifying the billing process, and ensuring that you get paid for the work you've done. In this article, we'll explore how Clerk Invoices can automate your invoicing process from Tempo Timesheets data and save you time and effort.

The Challenge of Manual Invoicing

Many businesses still rely on manual methods for invoice creation, which can be time-consuming and prone to errors. Manually transferring worklog data into invoices can lead to billing discrepancies, delayed payments, and frustrated clients. It's essential for businesses to find a more efficient and accurate way to create invoices from their Tempo Timesheets worklogs.

Clerk Invoices is an app specifically designed to work seamlessly with Tempo Timesheets. It bridges the gap between time tracking and invoicing.

Let's delve into the step-by-step process of setting up this automation:

  1. Connect Clerk Invoices with Tempo Timesheets: This integration can be effortlessly configured within the settings of the Clerk Invoices platform.
  2. Define Team Roles: Next, outline the various roles within your team. This step is essential as it helps you assign specific responsibilities to team members, streamlining the invoice creation process.
  3. Team Structure and Role Assignment: Describe the organizational structure of your team and specify which team members are assigned to which roles. This ensures that each team member's contributions are accurately reflected in the invoicing process.
  4. Client Management: Create client profiles within Clerk Invoices or seamlessly import them from popular accounting software like Xero or QuickBooks. This simplifies the client management process, making it easy to associate invoices with the appropriate clients.
  5. Rate Card Configuration: Establish a shared rate card applicable to all clients or create individual rate cards tailored to the unique needs of each client. This rate card specifies the billing rates for different services, ensuring precise invoicing.
  6. Invoice Templates Creation: Create invoice templates that define the scope of each invoice you intend to generate. Clerk Invoices offers the flexibility to apply various time filters during the import and invoice building process. For instance, you can filter time-based on Tempo account, Tempo billable time, or Tempo custom work attributes. This level of customization ensures that your invoices accurately reflect the work completed.

Once you've completed these automation setup steps, you can harness the power of the invoice generator within Clerk Invoices to effortlessly create invoices for all your clients with just a few clicks. This streamlined process not only saves valuable time but also enhances accuracy in your invoicing, ensuring that clients receive clear and precise invoices every month.
