Sometimes, even though you have finalized invoices in Moment, you might encounter difficulties exporting the files. In this article we will explain how you can solve some recurring issues.

How to manually change export status of my invoices?

Sometimes, due to user error or confusion, you might need to manually change the status of some invoices in order to export them again.

Once you have done this, you can export the invoices again.

I have changed the status of my invoices but still cannot export them

Sometimes, Moment will not display invoices for export even if you have changed the status of the invoices. That means that the notification bell in the upper right corner will not display anything for export.

If this is the case, the best thing you can do is to check the export settings. Go to Setup > settings > integrations. Then, choose the file export type you use, click edit and Look for this field:

Make sure that the "Default issue date limit" is set to "current date". In this way you will make sure that everything that has not yet been exported is sent. Remember to save, then refresh your page and look at the notification bell.
