      Thank you for your feedback. We’ve added it to the list of things to consider for a future update, if there is a need for tracking cost. Microsoft Invoicing currently aims at making invoicing easy, and cost accounting is not really part of that story.
      If you need to track your cost, you might want to try out Dynamics 365 instead, perhaps?

    • Allow Integration with Xero

      You have integration with Quickbooks. Integration with Xero would be nice as well. Xero and Office 365 already play pretty nice together. Thanks!

        • Microsoft Invoicing API

          A lot of Office 365 API are available. Will Microsoft Invoicing have an API.
          At least initially, APIs to change status of an Invoice from Open to Paid will help manage many businesses.

              • Need to be able to disable VAT entirely

                There is no option to disable VAT.

                As a non-VAT registered business, my invoices technically shouldn't make any mention of VAT, and setting it to 0% is technically wrong.

                Invoicing even puts an (empty) "VAT Registration No" at the bottom of every invoice with no way to turn it off.

                Please make VAT optional so it can be turned off and businesses who aren't VAT registered can use Invoicing efficiently.

                    • Additional Fields on Invoice

                      The invoice is a little too basic as many clients require additional information to appear on the invoice. For example:

                      1. PO Number:
                      2. Supplier Number:
                      3. Project Name:
                      4. Customer Number:


                      The notes section is a work around but isn't as acceptable or useful for recipients

                        • 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.

                          • Send Invoice from a Shared Mailbox

                            Instead of sending invoices from a user account, I would like to send from a shared mailbox so that I can scale my accounts receivable team up as necessary. This is also important as our "billing" shared mailbox is an important part of our communication branding for B2B clients.

                                • Support modern authentication

                                  My Office 365 account and my Microsoft account use the same email. This is normally not an issue with any other app, I simply get the modern authentication prompt and specify which account I want to use. Microsoft invoicing instead just ignores that and tells me I can’t login with my personal account.

                                    Thank you for your feedback! You’re right that Microsoft Invoicing has a dependency on your Office 365 work or school account, and that you cannot log in with your personal account. But you have a good point about the experience, so we’ll take a look at what we can do to make it easier for you going forward.

                                  • Combined invoice for all Office365 licenses under the one account

                                    Currently we need to download several invoices, one for each license type in Office365. It would help us if all of them were on tthe one invoice. Perhaps an option for "Combine invoices"

                                    • Edge browser unable to print background graphics

                                      While all other browsers are able to print background graphics, Edge is lacking this simple feature. Main reason for this request is: We created a spfx Sharepoint webpart to export lists in a nice template. If we want to print this html export from Edge then the colors and background are gone. Therefore we use Chrome because Edge lacks this option. Seems like a quick win for the Edge browser to support this!

                                      • 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...

                                        • adding a reference field for invoicing

                                          It would be a nice idea to have a reference field for the invoices. One issue i have had from my clients when I have invoiced is that they are not always aware of what job the invoice relates to. Currently I am adding it into the customer notes section which appears at the bottom of the invoice which is not really ideal.

                                          Thank you
