Standard Deferral Schedule Workflow

A customer purchases a deferral item. When this service item is sold, it is set as a deferrable item. And when the sales invoice is created and posted, the corresponding deferral schedule is also created.

Note: To access the forms, ensure that you have selected Sales Order Processor as the role in your settings.
