  • Hi all, very new to Wave hope to get some help here. I'm trying to start off 2019 afresh, but for 2018, I already have some entries. How do I clear off the remaining balance from 2018? Do I have to delete all the invoices etc. from 2018 to start clean? Thank you very much.

  • Hi, does anyone know if there is a way of archiving receipts? Or a way of searching 'done' receipts? Or a way of changing the order in which 'done' receipts are listed and so I could look through them either in alphabetical order or date order?

  • SriSri
    Last week we had a payroll transaction and amount was deducted from account. There was a mistake on payroll and bank reverted the money back to account. Now it is showing deducted amount as "Uncategorized Expense" and reverted money showing as "Sale". How to category them? I cannot put them as "Transfer" because both from same account.

  • Hello, I'm a new user to Wave and I wonder how to deal with an over-payment to a bill. If I have a bill for 500 and I've paid 700, the bill's balance shows (-200) because of the excess payment. This is good. However, if I enter a new $300 bill from the same vendor and apply a payment to it, I don't have a clue (unless I remember) that I have c…

  • When I export to csv (or excel) the Transaction Id is 'truncated' in accounting.csv. For example, both 479827673359629331 and 479827848345992978 are exported as 4.79828E+17 This means I am unable to relate the exported data back to a unique transaction within the system.
