As clients become more comfortable with the Internet, they'll be willing to receive invoices and time reports by email rather than through regular postal mail. You can use Time Logger to create your invoices and time reports and save them as PDF documents and then email them as attachments.

The process to invoice using PDF is as follows:
NOTE: If you wish to use Time Logger's File->Print->Invoice or Invoice->Invoice Multiple Clients and want your invoices to be generated and saved as PDF documents, you will need to set your default printer (for your computer) to your PDF printer and then perform these functions in Time Logger.
