  1. 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

  2. Allow me access

    When I try to sign in I get a message that this application is only for office 365 but I have this at business premium level so why cant I get in?

    Hi there,
    Microsoft Invoicing and the rest of Business Premium is still in preview to a limited number of users. We’ll be generally available soon, so stay tuned!

  3. 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"!!

    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?

  5. 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"

  6. Consolidate / aggregate each month's invoices into one

    Each month we get multiple invoices, each of which has to be recorded in our accounting system, paid, reconciled and reported for VAT purposes. Please find a way of sending a single invoice each month with one line item per service, and taking one payment.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but thank you for your suggestion!
    You’re not the first to ask for this, and we’re still thinking about adding it in a later update if interest increases.

  8. 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.

  10. Payment by Cheque

    The template includes a line "please make cheques payable to"
    My business doesn't accept cheques so can this be removed?

    Thank you for your feedback! That is a valid point, but we don’t have an easy way in which to remove that line. We’re looking into a couple of options, so this will hopefully be avoided in an update later.

  11. po number

    Add a field for customer PO number.

  12. Allow invoices to be saved without sending

    Invoice cannot be moved out of draft without sending email; for some clients I need to invoice differently but still track so would be useful to be able to save invoice out of draft state without sending an email and then use to track payments.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but thank you for sharing your scenarios with us! We’re thinking about a possible solution for both scenarios, but specifically for your needs, would it be good enough if you could generate the PDF file on your computer and send that?

  13. Email account not working

    Why would my business 365 email account not work ?

  14. Allow to change Credit Card for annual accounts

    I would like to see Office 365 have the ability to update the credit card information for annual accounts. The current process is to cancel the subscription, have the remaining balanced credited, and pay for the new one year term. This is unacceptable to the customer. The solution should just be to update the existing credit card on file without changing the subscription period and charging the credit card. I have never seen this with any other company and find it hard to believe this isn't a solution currently.

  15. 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!!
