How to handle a pro bono invoice

I would like to track pro bono work via an invoice for my records, but there will be no charge for the time so the total for the invoice will be $0. How can I show it as "Paid" when there will be no payments made and they don't appear in the Unpaid Invoices Report? I would prefer not to have to create Credits just to reconcile these Invoices.

I have Quicken Home, Business, and Rental Property 2019 R22.12

    Within the invoice you could add a Discount line item, similar to what I described in this discussion:
    Just give a 100% discount (-100). That will make for a $0.00 invoice

    I was thinking about $0 invoice line items ... but neither my approach, nor UKR's, actually mark  the invoice as PAID.
    I think that you might have to create a $0 payment to get the invoice PAID.

  • Thanks for your input, but as you can see the issue is not creating the $0 invoice, it's trying to mark it "paid". It doesn't allow a $0 payment.
  • Thanks. I have done it this way in the past, but was hoping for a simpler method.
