Navigate to the Create Invoice page and enter information in the required fields.

  • On the Invoices page, click on Task List (gray tab with the rectangle icon, on the right-hand side) > Invoices and Payments > Create Invoice.

  • On the Create Invoice page, enter the following required values in the Invoice Header:
    • Identifying PO: This can be left blank.

You may use multiple lines to split an invoice between various accounts.  However, clicking on additional lines without entering full information will result in the error: Must provide a value for the attribute amount. If you encounter this error, highlight each extra line (those without account info) and delete using the X at the top of the lines section.

  • Scroll to the top of the Create Invoice page and click Save and Close.


Step Three

Search for the Invoice to validate it and then approve it.  There are multiple ways to search for and locate the invoice to start this process.

  • Option A: Click on the Bell icon on the WyoCloud Financial Management home page to view the invoice through Notifications.


  • In the Notifications drop-down, click More Details > Financials.


NOTE: The Requestor will see the pending invoice in their Notifications and receive an email notification with the Invoice Information to approve or reject the invoice.



  • In the BPM Worklist pop-up, find your invoice pending approval in the list and click on the invoice Title to review and approve it.



Invoice lines do not have a Distribution Combination or Distribution Set assigned, so you must select one or enter the Distribution Combination when reviewing the Invoice information.  For expense accounts, the Distribution Combination you enter should have a budget amount assigned.


  • Option B: Click on Navigator > Payables > Invoices.

  • On the Invoices page, click on Task List (gray tab with the rectangle icon, on the right-hand side) > Invoices and Payments > Manage Invoices.
