    Hi All, I am new to Wave and I am looking for some help please? If I prepare an estimate based on several different services and the quote is accepted, how do I go about changing the estimate into an invoice but only on certain items listed from the estimate??

  • I have just completed my year-long Wave experiment and I am (truly) very sad to say I've just ponied up the coin to buy the newest version of QB desktop. :disappointed: Wave is a wonderful platform that I really like, so I would be remiss to not explain myself. The bottomline for me is reporting capabilities. I need to be able to drill down, de…

  • Effectively managing payables means being aware of what's coming due by due date. Wave could be improved in this area. I suggested this a year ago, but have not seen any movement in this area. Why doesn't the billing page show due dates? Also, the aged payables report should show the detail of what's due, not just a total amount, or at least a…

The positions are not showing up in the Transactions page. The positions were added using bills. This is pretty annoying as I hav…

  • This was actually the catalyst for me starting my own business. The 2018 Telstra Small Business Intelligence report found that (in Australia) 62% of customers will stop considering a business if they can’t find information about it online. Also, in Australia, only 50% of small business actually have a website. So, if you're a small business witho…

  • Hi Wave team, This might be something to pass onto your CX or web developers but the current experience for existing users is painful if they accidentally click on the wrong google account when signing into wave. Trying to sign in with the wrong google account forces you into an onboarding flow that you can't get out of easily. Clicking on 'Your…

  • Hello, could anyone please help. I use wave for very basic needs, only enter my income and expenses. When I look at transactions of all accounts I assume it shows the profit (my income minus expenses). But when I do profit and loss report for all times it gives me different figure. I am confused why this is happening! (Image)

  • I want to record business training programs attended, as well as fees for participation in vendor markets e.g. cost for rental of a table/tent to set up my booth. I'm unsure how to categorize these...should I just select "Uncategorized Expense"? How else can I capture these expenses?

How to post GST on the total value of imported material as it only shows 13% HST option and I cannot find a way to override it. Please help!

  • Hi all! I just got a surprise SBA EIDG deposit which wasn't much but seen to be a $1K grant for each employee. So the G in EID(G) is a grant instead of EIDL for Loan. This is my understanding from what a lot of people have been posting on Reddit (I know I know but so far it all lines up) and SBA website but the site is not clear enough as it ment…

As I try to migrate to the new provider, it's insisting that my CAD $ account is somehow a USD $ account and won't let me link it to my Canadian account. I've checked for profile settings in ezCardInfo (there are none). Anyone have an…

  • I had to import delinquent invoices prior to using Wave for collection. The partial payments received have had an impact on our opening balance which matched the statement. Since those are the only transactions prior to January 1st, 2019 added so that we can track the payments, how do I fix it?

  • Received a transaction into Wave from the bank download. This transaction has GST (Canada) included in the value. Click on include sales tax thinking that this will create a split transaction for expense amount and tax but nothing happens. Any suggestions?
