Staged Processing Manual Printing

For the Other Action Menu options (press F9 or the Other Actions Menu on the Button Bar) see Sales Invoice Other Actions Menu.

User Tray Stage

Orders and invoices that the user is working on can be linked to the User Tray, this is useful for keeping an eye on orders or when reprinting invoices for orders that are not in the same stage. Orders that are placed in this stage have NOT been physically moved, but linked to the User Tray. They still occupy a processing stage within the Sales Invoice Manager and can still be processed as normal while populating the User Tray. Copies of both issued and archived invoices can also be printed.


  1. The orders that populate the User Tray are visible to all users, if the user name filter is turned off.
  2. To populate the User Tray the user must drag and drop an order from the stage that it is currently in into the User Tray.
  3. Invoices in the Issued stage can be added into the User Tray so that a copy can be printed, see How To: Move Invoices into the User Tray.
  4. Copies of archived invoices can be printed by adding them to the User Tray from the Statement grid in the [ Customer | Statement ] screen, see How To: Print Copies of Archived Invoices.
  5. Orders that occupy a Returns stage cannot be placed in the User Tray.
