The EDI inbox display a list of the EDIs in your system. You may search the EDIs the usual way.
Clicking on the invoice number of an EDI will take you to the details page for that EDI. Click on the PDF icon will download a PDF of the EDI.
If you have a received an EDI in the form of an XML file then you may import it by clicking on the Create EDI button.
An EDI will typically start in the “incomplete” state where you may need to fill in a few details that are missing. When there are no more warnings on the EDI it may be approved, which means that it moves to the next phase in the approval process. If it is in the last phase then it will become assigned and product use will be created from the EDI lines.
All phase changes are logged in the Activities box at the bottom of the page.
The details page shows most of the information from the EDI. At the top are buttons for processing the EDI, these depend on the state and phases of the EDI and on permissions. Below that you may find warnings about what needs to be done before the EDI can be approved, like assigning at task or company. If you have an integration that supports posting EDIs you may also get a warning about the EDI not being posted.
Below that are displayed any warnings about things that might prevent you from approving the EDI. The warnings usually include a hint to how to fix the problem.
Below the details are boxes with additional information: notes, the EDI lines, activity, files etc.
Click on the Edit button to edit the EDI. You can only edit a few of the fields, those that are not taken directly from the EDI.
This will post the EDI to Economic or other similar system that supports it. Microbizz will look through the integrations that support posted EDIs and will pick the first that supports the EAN number of the EDI.
This will move the EDI to the next phase. If the EDI is in the last phase then the button changes to Assign.
When the EDI is assigned the EDI lines are converted to product use on the relevant task.
There are several settings that control how the lines are converted to product use in various situations, like what should happen if the task is closed, or if allowance charge lines should be assigned, or if 0-lines should be assigned.
Mark as pending
This will move the EDI back to the start of the approval process.

This will retract the EDI, ie. it will delete any product use that has already been created and will move the EDI back to the start of the approval process.
