Please add an option to select in Sales preferences, so when creating an invoice it defaults to today's date, not the last entered date.

 

"Default Date Setting/Preference"

Current Status: Open
Last Changed: October 2013

Great suggestion. If anyone else would like to see option, please vote for this idea. If you would like to see this applied to other areas too (purchases, spend money or receive money for instance) then please leave a comment below.

This is a necessity and I hope it gets fixed soon.  Even if we can have an option in preferences to switch it between always default to today's date.

As well as Invoices, I would like to see it happen for Payments.

Date should always be the actual date

I completely agree that when orders are converted to invoices it should default to the current date (even if this is a preference setting) as we have had massive timing issues in relation to GST and income tax with clients.

I agree entirely, many a mistake has been made by all of us, due to the last date being used, not necessarily today's date, would love to get this resolved.  All of the different areas where dates are important it needs to be fixed!

Could you please look at having today's date be the default date when opening ANY Transaction Entry window?  It is so frustrating to have to make sure you check this each time.

I have used a lot of accounting software programs and never had to deal with such an obvious flaw before.

I'm sure I've sent a similar email last year.  Surely it's an easy fix!!!

Thanks,

Hi, we have been frustrated several times after having altered a previous invoice, the next new invoice we do keeps the old date which can throw out a whole day if no one notices it. It would be great if a pop up box came up and said "Are you sure you want to use an earlier date?" Thanks, KC
