Multi-invoice consolidated LEDES E-Billing files can now be generated from the Pre-Bills view. This allows Centerbase users the ability to generate LEDES E-Billing files for multiple invoices at once, and consolidate those results into a single file.
To configure the default behavior of multi-Invoice LEDES file generation, navigate in the System Settings to Electronic Billing -> General, and find “Multi-Invoice LEDES File Generation Style”
- Selecting Individual Files means that an individual LEDES file for each selected invoice will be generated and put together in a .zip file (this is the original behavior). Selecting "Consolidated File" means that the LEDES information for each selected invoice will be consolidated into a single file. Selecting "Prompt" means that each time upon clicking “Download E-Billing File(s)” and selecting a template on the Pre-Bills view, a dialog will appear prompting you to choose between Individual Files and Consolidated File.
- With the System Settings configured, the process of LEDES file generation is essentially the same as before. Simply select the desired invoices, click “Download E-billing File(s)”, and select a template. Note that if your System Settings are configured to use the “Prompt” Multi-Invoice LEDES File Generation Style, you will be presented with a dialog prompting you to select a style to use.
- If any errors are encountered in the generation of a consolidated LEDES file, two files will be generated: the consolidated LEDES file containing the data for each invoice that did not encounter an error, and a text file detailing the errors encountered. These two files will be put together in a .zip file for download.
