2.116ImprovementAccounting Interfaces

We recognise that certain aspects of your Media Campaigns may change over time, or mistakes may happen during their creation, and one of the biggest risks associated with this is inconsistency of your invoice/accounting data. To accommodate Accounting Record creation on Invoice/Invoice Item level for key criteria which may change, we have implemented new fields on Invoice/Invoice Item level.

Enable matching with those fields can be managed manually through use of a feature setting.
