Dear all,

I've been using the Proz invoicing tool so far, but one of my client is asking me to issue an invoice gathering multiple POs/jobs and I can't find a way of doing this with Proz nvoicing tool (if you know a way of doing it, I'd be happy to hear about it).
So I thought it was a good time to try a new invoicing tool and I was tempted by TO300. I went on what I think is the official website, clicked the link to download the free trial version. The link was broken. I contacted their customer support service, and got -as advertised- a reply in less than 24hours with a new link to follow. When I download the exe file though, my antivirus flags it as "malicious".
Anyone has experienced the same problem?
I'm just looking for a user-friendly invoicing tool that would allow me to track my invoices per client, and to issue invoices with the ability of gathering multiple POs on the same invoice. Would you have any tip or recommendation?
Thanks a lot!

MS Excel Jan 29, 2017

I do such things in Microsoft Excel. It used to be just a plain spreadsheet, then I automated it a bit: a single XLSX file contains an invoice template, a list of clients with their particulars and payment terms, and the entire invoice stream (one per worksheet). Upon adding a new sheet, it is automacitally populated from template using a small embedded routine in Visual Basic. Clients can be selected from a drop-down list and the pertinent fields are filled in automatically. There is also some more Visual Basic for checking data consistency, flagging overdue invoices, etc., but it's only a few dozen lines of code altogether. It's not yet a product ready for IT-naive users, but I can be persuaded to bring it reasonably close to that level. Alternatively, if you are sufficiently skilled to adapt it to your needs yourself, I can share it right away.

Is not working anymore Jan 29, 2017

I do have the same problem. I used TO3000 for a while, more or less satisfied.
After the last automatic update made by Windows, nothing is working anymore.

I contacted the support, but at the same time noticed that I could not download
any version of TO3000, because:
- my antivirus flagged it as potencial malicious and
- Chrome did/does not allow its installation.

Shutting off both protections leads me to an exe-file, which results in a registration
mask, where I can register, but then get an info, that my database does not match
my licence.

Back and forth, it is now 2 weeks and the support of TO3000 is not able to solve
the problem. They asked me to send my database...no way I will do that.

Everything is very disappointing and I am giving up, searching now for another
managing tool.

thanks for your help Feb 7, 2017

@Ahartje:
I see, that's a shame. That explains everything. I'll just use Excel until I find a better solution then...

@Anton:
Thanks for offering your newly created tool! I'm afraid I'm not code-savvy enough to be able to use/adapt it though.

in Proz invoicing tool and you'll be able to add umpteen various POs and jobs (a new line for each one). No need to install various questionable programs.
