A Contract Invoice Policy is a saved filter set that lets you repeatedly generate contract invoices based on specified parameters. For example, you might create an invoice policy to generate invoices for a particular customer or item type, or for the work of a specific employee, or you might have an invoice policy for invoices associated with a particular project.

You can set a schedule on contract invoice policies to automatically generate invoices at regular intervals, such as every month.

Note this object has been renamed from Contract Invoice Filter Sets (GENINVOICEFILTERS) to Contract Invoice Policy (GENINVOICEPOLICY).
