If you mean the field Create Invoice in the Sales Order, then here are the possible options:

  • On Demand: Invoices are created manually from Sales Orders when needed
  • On Delivery Order: Invoices are generated from picking (delivery)
  • Before Delivery: A Draft invoice is created and must be paid before delivery

But if you mean the invoicing_method field, this link can help :


It's said :

Invoicing journals (Sales ‣ Configuration ‣ Sales ‣ Invoice Types) are used to assign purchase orders and/or delivery orders to a given invoicing journal. Everything in the journal can be invoiced in one go, and you can control the amounts by journal. For example, you can create the following journals: daily invoicing, end-of-week invoicing and monthly invoicing. It is also possible to show the invoicing journal by default in the partner form. Set the Invoicing Method to Grouped (one invoice per customer) or Non Grouped (individual invoices) according to your needs.
