b.If you do not print out from AyaNova a detailed completed report for each workorder to accompany the invoice, you might have descriptive textinclude aspects of the data from the workorder(s) to display right on the invoice - such as workorder number(s), schedulable user(s) that performed the service, start and stop Labor times, workorder item summaries, details from each Labor item

If you enter new information into either QuickBooks or AyaNova with QBI running, you need to refresh the connections in 4 possible ways:
1. Select to Refresh QuickBooks connection from the main AyaNova window
2. From within QBI, select Refresh QuickBooks connection
3. If not seeing AyaNova service workorders that are ready for invoicing, from QBI's Invoices menu select Refresh invoices
4. Exit out of QBI, exit out of AyaNova. Log back into AyaNova and start QBI again.
