    • Allow For Automated Scheduling of Invoice Sends

      A feature where you automate the sending of invoices to customers based on a calendar date would be great.

      To have real usefulness, this feature would have to be paired with the ability to send updated invoices which include current balance and payments registered after initial invoice send (please see my other idea @ https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/600781-microsoft-invoicing/suggestions/31951579-enable-invoice-updating-and-reissuing-to-include-r )

      Some invoices are paid over a period of time e.g. $10k invoice is to be paid in 4 monthly installments of $2,500.

        • Integration with Outlook Customer Manager

          • Allow invoice number to be changed

            I would like to use this service but I haven't been able to find a way to edit the invoice number assigned to the invoice meaning that my test invoice starts at 1. However this is not a new business so I already have invoices up to a certain number so would need to be able to change the invoice number to reflect that. I also have some regular clients who I have assigned a range of invoice numbers to which means my invoices aren't always sequential so I would need to be able to edit the invoice number for…

            • Allow different currencies

              It would be good to be able to choose the invoice currency when creating an invoice. As Invoicing uses PayPal as its payment mechanism and PayPal is built to handle any currency, this shouldn't be too difficult to implement. Without this feature, we can only use Invoicing for domestic business, which greatly reduces its usefulness.

              • Eliminate current expiration policy for communications credits

                We use communications credits only for in-bound 1-800 service, of which we have little traffic. I was just informed that my initial purchase of $20, which is the minimum amount I can purchase at a time, expired after 12 months, although I had only used $1.92 of activity in the 12 month period of time. Now in order for my customers to use my 1-800 numbers, I need to buy another $20 credit -- which I will most likely need to forfeit 80% of to Microsoft solely because of the antiquated policy. It's not a lot of money, but it…

                  Provide the option to add a larger description to an invoice. So that a business that provides a service can be more descriptive about the work being performed.

                      Hi,
                      I think there should exist some cmdlets for us to automate the invoice download using PowerShell.

                      • Be able to edit & update invoices, and have invoices reflect payments customers have made

                        Some customers make payments. When registering payments, their invoices do not reflect it, which I think should happen automatically. We should be able to re-send the invoice showing the payment deducted from the original amount owed. Why register a payment if it does not show on the invoice? And, because invoices cannot be edited once they are sent, etc., I have to start from scratch to be able to send an invoice with my customer's payments reflected. PLEASE FIX THIS... it is an important feature that needs to be added. Thanks!!

                        • Identification of cancelled invoices on printed invoices

                          Although on the invoicing list shows the status of the invoice as cancelled, when printing the invoices there is no clear identification showing that the invoice was cancelled.

                          • Allow option to add late fee percent if not paid

                            Would be great to allow a late fee (e.g. 1.5%) to the invoice when payment is not received. Then we can manually resend the invoice with the updated amount each term (e.g. NET 30). It might be best to not have it automatically do this because we may forget to mention that we received payment by check in the mail...

                            Or can this all be done manually? I imagine there would need to be enough flexibility with the invoice document to include a late fee and a new date...

                              I was trying to use the service, but the Term most used with my customers are Net 30 Days but is not available. When I try to update or type the value in the box, the system produces an error message and not allow to continue. Net 30 Days is the payment term most used in my industry. Thanks!

                                • Allow entering custom item descriptions (not just on price list)

                                  The requirement to add every invoiced item to the price list makes invoicing unsuitable in scenarios where you're providing a service and your fees will vary with each and every client.

                                  How exactly are you meant to be able to invoice this?

                                  I should be able to create an invoice, add a new item line, and type an arbitrary description and amount, without having to select that from a predefined price list, or add it to such a list.

                                  • Enable Invoice Updating and Reissuing to Include Registered Payments

                                    Right now you can register payments received after initial invoice send, but you cannot issue an updated invoice reflecting the balance owed after accounting for said payments.

                                    This seems like it would be basic functionality in an invoicing system: The ability to generate on-demand invoices reflecting the current balance of account and any payments made to date.

                                    • Allow Ink Editor on Microsoft Word for Macbook Pro (Non Touch)?

                                      The Ink Editor feature for MS Word is only available for the touch tablets or IPADs. I think this feature should be allowed on MS Word installations so that we can use this great feature by connecting the laptops with WACOM like tablets.
                                      I am using MacBook Pro and I find Draw tab (Ink Editor) missing and also I am using the WACOM tablet also. This feature powers Trainers like me to have a webinar with clients, using the power of MS Office tools. Otherwise it;s frustrating to switch tabs and sometimes things go out of context.

                                      • A section for BACS details for bank transfer payments

                                        I really want to use MS Invoicing but without this feature it's pointless.

                                        All our clients pay via bank transfer and to not be able to put these on the invoice makes it unusable

                                        • Allow discount description.

                                          On the discount line there needs to be an option of listing the reason for the discount.
