Billdu Timeline – List of Major Events For Each Invoice

We at Billdu always strive to come up with new features and improvements. Our approach has yet again resulted in the creation and implementation of a brand new function to Billdu’s website. Newcomers and veteran users alike, are you ready? Read on for a detailed breakdown of Billdu’s new update – The Timeline.

The Timeline

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a detailed, chronological overview of every action you took in regards to your invoices and other documents? When was a document created, when it was sent and to whom, did the client open it after receiving? All these questions can now be answered directly in your Billdu account by opening up any given document and checking out the History section in the bottom part of the page.

There, you will find a timeline consisting of all the events that transpired with this specific document. For instance not only are you able to see when the invoice was sent but when it was received and opened by the client as well. Every event is followed by a date, an icon for quick recognition and a text description.

So many events!

For a clear understanding of the Timeline function, let’s break down a complete list of all the events that are being tracked and which can be later viewed by a user anytime:
