Few of the core functionalities derived from this panel are:
Need convincing? Let’s start.
Clean, appealing list of invoices
Every invoice in the list is presented with:
- A few of its details (issue date, number, client);
- Optional description;
- Status (paid, unpaid, and overdue);
- Total bar
Beside the total amount of an invoice, the total bar visually shows percentage of how much money has been paid to you for that particular invoice. It’s awesome when you run on visual for your partial payments, right?
Tooltip is a little balloon-like box that appears when you move the mouse over the total bars and shows additional information.
Mighty Real-time Filters
Dancing summary is created when filters are applied. What does that mean?
As you apply/type filters, summary dynamically re-calculates (or dance) in real-time, depending on the matching results. You can combine multiple filters for more specific calculations.
Period: 1 Aug 2011 – 30 Oct 2011
Description: web design
Status: unpaid, overdue
The list will display subset of invoices that match your filter criteria; therefore its totals summary will be calculated and shown beneath. Awesome!
The Filters are mighty by themselves, but when you combine them with Sort, they become majestic.
Yes you can.
Example: First click the Total column, and then click Status.
Sort priority will be: Status then Total. Neat stuff!
Just on a tap of your fingers, with a few clicks and maybe a little bit of your creativity; possibilities of this invoice list probably extend beyond your imagination.
Clickability (availability) of the menu operations changes on-fly according to the selected invoice. Those operations which are not available (for the selected invoice) have smoke gray appearance.
The example menu from the left corresponds to a paid invoice.
Booya! You can’t make a mistake, even intentionally.
We mapped some native keyboard keys behavior, so you can feel just like you work with a conventional desktop application, not web software. Who said that web-apps suffer from this one?
Arrows (Up/Down) – to move the selection in the invoice list
Esc – to cancel an action, to hide shown windows (Yes, windows. There’re some)
Delete – to delete an invoice
Tab – to move through text fields
Enter – to open selected invoice for viewing (double mouse click can be used also); to confirm an action.
Invoicebus works with no interruptions because everything happens in real time, smoothly like waltz, without a single reload. Sounds crazy? Maybe it is, a little bit, but we dare to raise today’s web-programming criteria well beyond traditional web paradigm.
