  1. 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.

    • Allow for Deleting a Cancelled Invoice

      Cancelled Invoice stay forever right now. There should be an option to delete. Also cancelled invoice appear in the Dashboard along with all other invoices which doesn't make sense.

      • 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…

        • 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 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.

              Thank you for your feedback! We’re thinking about supporting multiple currencies, but for the time being, you can only invoice your customers in your own currency. However, they can then pay PayPal in their own currency, so you can have customers outside your own country.

                • Add Payment Term NET 30 DAYS

                  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 unit price to be excl. VAT

                      Unit price is shown inclusive of VAT but invoice should have ability to show prices exclusive too. Column in sent invoice for unit price doesn't indicate that price is inclusive. Simple solution is for unit price to be exclusive and Line Amount is inclusive.
                      More flexible solution is to have option to show unit and line item as inclusive or exclusive and ensure column header indicates incl. or excl.

                        • 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

                          • Use the date format from settings

                            The date on invoices is in US format - MM/DD/YY - even though I have my location correctly set as UK. I think is a bug rather than a feature but it needs to be fixed as customers are given a date which can have an impact on when they pay.

                              • Allow changing the units off of per hour!!

                                Right now there is a units column that you cannot choose to see until you send the invoice. When you send the invoice, it adds a units column and automatically says per "Hour" -- which is not how we invoice! This appears to be a bug in that there is no way to remove or edit the column, and we have to write a note saying essentially, "Sorry, Microsoft doesn't let us change this units column, so please disregard the part about "per hour"!!

                                      • Allow for disabling of VAT options

                                        I am not a VAT registered business and, as such, I do not need my invoices cluttered with VAT (indeed, it makes them technically wrong as I have to mark everything as zero-rated to get the numbers right, even though that isn't quite accurate).

                                        I recognise that for many larger businesses VAT is a legal requirement, but maybe this feature could be added with suitable disclaimers to warn unsuspecting users.

                                          Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this! We will consider adding support for non-VAT registered businesses. In the meanwhile, please contact your accountant to make sure you’re VAT exempt and they might advise about the feasibility of mark your service as zero rated in the app.
