Accounting Feature Ideas

  • Hi Are you going to implement the ability for users to specify their own SMTP server? This is a huge negative for Wave as mail gets stuck in spam filters and this will only get worse and worse as more malicious mail circulates, and also clients don't like seeing mail come from some long random Wave email address, I've literally had calls from cli…

  • Pleases add an indicator icon (flag) on the transactions list page to show if a transaction came from a receipt or was merged with a receipt upload. I need to quickly scan through expense transactions to see which still need receipts to be uploaded.

  • Hey Everyone! 

 What else do you use for your business and wish you could connect with Wave? What non-banking related data do you find yourself bringing into Wave regularly and wish we would automate for you?

  • Idea: Auto merge receipts with credit-card transactions! This is desperately needed feature to eliminate the manual merging required when you capture a receipt and approve it only to have a duplicate show up from the bank. Recommendation(s): * It would incredibly useful if there was a reconciliation process that would matching approved receipt…

  • Wave needs a way to bulk edit the vendors for multiple transactions. Currently, you need to open every transaction and change every vendor individually. There really is no excuse for not having this. Also, Wave should learn and autofill the vendor for future transactions like it does with the categories.

  • In [Accounting] [Transactions], when I check multiple transactions and choose [Edit], I can only change [Category] and [Tax], but many of my transactions have the same [Customer] or [Vendor], so it would be nice to be able to change those at the same time, rather than go back into each every transaction and set the [Customer] or [Vendor] one by on…

  • The changes to the transfers between businesses process (no longer being able to simply click and select transfer to company A, etc) has made Wave an nonviable accounting option for me now. I can't possibly do the multiple steps for every transaction (I have 3 businesses on 1 credit card and one bank account). I really don't want to switch but don…

    Hello Wave team! I am very satisfied with Wave Accounting and I have an idea/need that could be important to other users. Daily I receive payments in bank accounts that I must assign to a client's account, it would be very good if we could attach the image of the receipt. Hope it is a good idea and can be implemented.

  • This is really a very important thing. All business have certain expenses that cannot be categorised as operating expenses. These expenses are shown in profit and loss statement after/below the Operating Profit. Every business has these kind of expenses. Example include Interest on Loan, gain/loss on any investment activities, Income Tax. An…

  • Hello! I was wondering if the use of "tags" to track certain projects or customer transactions within Wave has ever been discussed or considered. Short of (i) going with a full-blown Class or Project Tracking system (similar to what QB uses); or (ii) having the ability to assign accounts other than Income to bills and invoices (assign …

  • Hi, Is there a way whereby i can tag each transaction of a particular project/event/invoice so that I will be able to track the profitability of that particulat project/event/invoice? This will be a great feature as many business dabble in multiple projects at one time and it would be good to be able to track which of the projects are yielding m…

  • Is there a feature in wave, where there is a category for unallowable expenses to reduce the cooperation tax bill? ie a business lunch for clients can be paid for using the company card, but is not a tax deduction expense.

  • Hello Wave Team, this is a feature request for measuring Client Profitability and Costs. Currently, there is an Income by Customer report. This is limited in its usefulness because while a certain customer might bring in a large amount of revenue, it may also cost just as much or more to service that client, and there is no way to measure how prof…

  • I would like to request a new feature be considered. Time tracking. I've read the post where time tracking was discussed on Feb 28th but wanted to know if its on your road map and when you expect to have it launched. Thanks for all the great work you do.

  • At this stage the Tax Report includes the Government Payment transaction. This influences the Totals (Debit) as Total Sum Input Tax is not seen. There are other users also asking for a solution Thank you in advance for consideration.

  • First and foremost, I LOVE THIS SOFTWARE! Sure it has its limitations, but overall it works wonderfully. It would be very helpful if as an alternative to creating a Bill, you could enter checks written/payments made in the transaction feed, that would later match the downloaded transaction. As of now I just delete the downloaded transaction, an…

  • I realize that "currently in Wave you can't merge a transaction that does not have the same amount and account with another transaction. When you are working with large deposits that cover a few invoices, you would want to wait for the bank imported transaction to arrive in Wave and categorize that as 'Payment received for an invoice'. Then, …

  • I live in New Zealand where the fiscal year ends 31st March. I ve set up the fiscal year in the settings but it does not show in the reports. I know it's possible to manually edit the dates but it takes many clicks back and forth and it's quite irritating. Why is it not possible to save a date range or have my fiscal year in the date range? Thanks

  • I'm not able to find any information regarding the printing of Accounts Payable checks. Does Wave Accounting support this? It's not useful to me if not since many of my vendors do not accept credit card payments.

  • So I tend to do a combination of manual and automated bookkeeping, but not all of them start off with uploaded receipts (especially for things like Uber where the receipts are emailed). Is there a way I can upload a receipt to a transaction AFTER I enter it into my accounts? Right now the process seems to be Upload Receipt -> Post Receipt to A…

  • We have to create job POs for our subcontractors and have them sign them agreeing to the amount we will pay them for the job. We are doing it outside of Wave now because Wave doesn't offer the features we need. It would be great if you could tie a bill to a customer as well as a vendor so that it would input the customers address on the bill. It w…

  • There are aspects of Wave that I love and it save me tonnes of time processing my accounts (especially the api). However, at the end of the month when I receive remittance advice from a customer, I would like to mark all their invoices as paid, using the same payment date, payment method and payment account. This feature is in every other account…
