When you send us a request to get an invoice mapped it's good to ask for a specific type of map. You have a choice of 3 styles of maps;
1. Line Item map; this is used for inventory & price check functions as it extracts product codes, quantities and unit prices. It is also used for assigning default GL codes to different lines by recognising the product code that is extracted. But to be able to create this the invoice usually needs to have a product code, description, quantity and line amount.
2. Service Map; this will extract the lines giving you a description and line amount (not quantities or unit prices). But please note that to be able to extract a description it needs to be on the same line level with the price. For instance on the invoice image below, the description it extracts is the green underlined 'Labour 1.5hrs @ $97.00/hr' and the line price of $222.50 beside it. Meaning the lines above it will not be extracted.
3. Summary Map; this will only give you the totals. No description will be extracted. There will be 1 or 2 lines that will read; 'goods and/or services taxed' and/or 'goods and/or services untaxed' (depending on whether all or part of the total is taxed)
When you select Map For Me a box will be displayed that you can write a note in saying what style map you require and anything else that's relevant to what you need extracted.
Here is an example of what each looks like;
