It's a pity site staff don't, or only hardly monitor the forum on the invoicing tool (called "Improvements to the invoicing tool"). I have made several suggestions which I think would probably be quite easy to implement, however nobody has ever responded to them. I feel let down as the invoicing tool is one of the main reasons I have a paid membership.

In case anyone's listening, some of my suggestions were:

- Allow other attachments to be included with the invoice.
- Include an option to request confirmation of receipt of the invoice.
- Include a request for confirmation before deleting a line in an invoice.

Site staff monitoring that thread Jan 23, 2015

Hello Olly,

My apologies for the delay in response to the thread on this issue: . Site staff monitor that forum, and the suggestions posted there are recorded in an ongoing list towards the improvement of that tool.

I agree that some of the ideas there don't look like they'd be too hard to implement, and I will see what can be done about addressing them.

Once any improvements are made, the community will be notified in

I hope this explains, but please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Invoicing tool suggestions Mar 5, 2015


I cannot find whether a suggestion made by Olly Pekelharing to be able to request confirmation of receipt of an invoice has been implemented. Several of my invoices apparently failed to reach their destination at the end of January, despite there being a comment below each one with the date of sending and the relevant message.

It would also be useful to be able to send said comment to the client.

Many thanks,

Sue Esplan
