Whether you need to create an invoice for a commission pay out or other miscellaneous expenses, the Invoices functionality in Deal Pipeline will do the job.
To create a new invoice, click the New button from within the Invoices related list.
The value in Deal Commission (Gross) (shown below) will auto-populate when an invoice is created.
Assign a status to the invoice.
Add additional line items to the invoice (e.g. photography fee to a landlord client). To add more items, click "Create a line item with an existing receipt" or "Upload New Receipt".
The Item Description field is a free text field which will auto-save. You can remove an item by clicking the red "x" at the end of the line item.

The approver will review the invoice and click Approve.
