the "terms" field is highly important because this is where you state that you want to be paid within, say, 30 days from invoice date. Or within 45 or 60 days or within two weeks. The due date is the day when you expect a check in your mailbox, based on your payment terms. Why would you, of all things, omit this part?
I agree with Nicole - it doesn't make any sense to remove these parts. Without a due date, invoices are not even valid in certain countries, so it's very important to have one. Also, without a due date, what's to make the client pay? The payment can never be late if a deadline is never set. If you absolutely don't care about when you get paid, then set a date three months from now. Most common seems to be 30 days from month end (i.e. you'd put a due date as the end of May if you sent an invoice now).
