Warning: Un-submitting paid invoices will modify reports that use the paid date range. Un-submitting submitted invoices will modify reports that use the completed date range.

Un-pay or Release Paid Jobs
- On the Payment List Screen, use the control button on your keyboard to highlight in yellow the job or jobs that need to be released.
- Record the payment date and payment number for each invoice so the invoice can re-submitted and paid with the original dates after the data entry errors are complete.

- The job has been released from payment and is now in a "submitted" status on the Payment List screen.
Un-submit the Payment Record
- Note all of the job numbers on the invoice that you are un-submitting. (Remember, un-submitting an invoice from the payment list un-submits all jobs on that invoice.)
- On the Payment List Screen, select the curved arrow button next to the record to Un-submit the record.

Notify the support desk to release the completed monitoring record (Before requesting that the monitor record be deleted, note the overall job evaluation status, every measure's pass or fail status and the monitor inspector and date).
- Open the Installation screen and select the delete trash icon to back up the install status to work ordered (Note the installer and date).
