Estimated Billing Date is used to specify the expected date on which invoices will be created. Estimated Billing Date is often used with Percent Likelihood. Percent Likelihood indicates how confident you are that a Cost Estimate will be billed.
The Estimated Billing Date and Percent Likelihood fields are not visible on the Cost Estimate by default, and need to be activated. The Estimated Billing Date field will be used for forecasting reporting within Chase Insight.
