Account Settings Feature Ideas


Discussion List

  • As wave can connect to bank accounts and see lots of sensitive commercial information about a business, I would like to have the option of using two-factor authentication (2FA), such as Google Authenticator, in order to provide an additional level of security when logging to wave.

  • I'm new to all of this and trying to set up my account. When uploading a receipt, it asks for Payment Account. How do I create a new one to show it was paid by my credit card? I'm not sure what Taxes Payable or Taxes Recoverable is?

  • Hey all! I'm a new user here, but I've actually come and gone on Wave Accounting for over a year. The last time I was here I saw this discussion on cryptocurrencies and just came back to see what had happened in the meantime. We didn't choose Wave last two times around because of the no crypto issue, and I am a bit surprised that there still isn'…

  • There was a discussion about 1½ years ago about changing the colors of transactions. I would like to propose either the ability to set your own colors or just use parenthesis around withdrawals or other negative amounts. The dark-red for negative numbers is difficult for me to distinguish from the black for deposits. Thanks, David.

  • Is it possible to add a default setting, along with year end, etc., for Accrual or Cash accounting? I'm using Cash so I need to select that each time I view a report and at some point I'm going to forget :/

    Hi there! Recently the privacy policy of the services was updated, and upon login into the application, I was met with a notice indicating me that has been the case. The notice said that the following documents changed and that I needed to review them. It then provided me a link to the Privacy Policy page. However, I think it would be useful to …

  • Is there a way to include my business email address in my profile settings so that it appears on invoices? If this isn't possible it seems like quite an oversight.

  • I have two feature suggestions: 1. Export/Import chart of accounts. This will simplify your setup of multiple companies using the same accounting system 2. Sort your chart of accounts by account ID. This will help you use GL codes and put them in order, because as you add more accounts, alphabetic by account name is not always the best sorting met…

  • Hi everyone, Here's a feature that would be useful. When the business changes its office's address, the change made on our account change all previous invoices (approved and paid). The change should only apply to new invoices. Would like to have this feature. Thanks for the great tool!

  • I am a new user of Wave and I am starting to organize my chart of accounts and so on. There are a few things that I have ran into, that I just feel needs to be more user friendly. For example, the business type should be editable. When I first signed up, I didn't see the option (not sure if it was there at the time) I needed to set up the appropri…

  • I need your help please and I can't find it in the discussions. My accountant has told me I need to re-class my Sales and Cost of Goods Sold(Purchases) into the right category/GL. Categories for my event costs should be Sales, Sales EU, Sales ROW, COGS, COGS EU and COGS ROW. However I already have my items categorised into say, marketing costs, …

  • There are only, four access control options in the wave account. 1. Admin 2. Editor 3. Payroll Manager 4. Viewer These four access controls have predefined access which. However in some businesses, two or more bookkeepers are involved in different areas of transactions (like purchase or sales); so the owner needs to allow two different editors …

  • Is it possible to include all customer fields in the import template? That would be useful as it currently does not include Account number, State/Province, Mobile number, etc.

  • Accounting transaction should not deleted rather it should be rectified by adding rectification entry. Therefore, It will be better if the transaction will be locked after any of following two events; 1. reconciliation done by the user or 2. Transactions reviewed by the reviewer.

  • Generally in accounting transaction number should be unique for each fiscal year, therefore user usually expect account application to do so. Therefore it will be better, if we could introduce transaction number kind of field in accounting. Thanks for listening

  • Hello, I'd like to request a feature to backup/export the whole account not just parts of it and be able to import this backup and restore the whole account to the backed up state. We have a new accountant who is still learning wave apps and can potentially cause a huge mess. We would like to be able to revert to a previous backup of all data on…

  • In the previous version of Wave when setting up the banking accounts in the chart of Accounts an option was there to choose a default banking account which would then appear as the default when capturing transactions in the Transactions module. This feature did not carry over to the current version. I have set up a new company and it now has a de…
