  • The Dashboard has some minimal graphics, but being able to see Income, Expenses, or Net over several years it helpful. It could be as simple as a table or fancy like a double line graph. The pie chart on the Dashboard is great for expenses, but it only shows current year. Would be good to have a drop down menu so I can look at prior years. But…

  • If you have your bank or credit card set up to import transactions to Wave automatically, you may have noticed that some transactions were already categorized when they imported. We know this is a time saving feature, but in talking with customers and using the automatic categorization ourselves, we knew we could do better. We're pleased to ann…

  • Noticed your historic reports have changed and struggling to track down the root cause? Good news! We've introduced a modified date filter to the transactions screen to make it easier to isolate these transactions. Click More Filters to access the date modified filter. We've also added this information in the details panel for each t…

  • Previously, journal entry line items associated with sales tax accounts were assumed to be payments to the government. We've listened to your feedback that you need the ability to add journal entries to increase your sales tax collected to increase your liability, as well as the ability to increase your sales tax paid on on purchases. We're ple…

  • I want to give access to a colleague to do invoices... but don't really want to give access to bills and reports. Is it possible to restrict access? Chris

  • Most small medium businesses resell some of the products belonging to an OEM. Can we have a buying-selling tracker module that allows us to map the items from the vendor at the cost it is bought, to the customer it is being resold -- of course with a markup a quick margin calculation with the vendors for each line item listed [as in internal …

  • I searched through a lot of accounting software before I settled on Wave. It wasn't the only free one, but it was definitely one of the most complete free platforms. Wave is really good, but it could be great with some very minor tweaks: * Make the estimate building function as user-friendly as the invoicing function. When I'm building estima…

  • Hello, I'm still on the old version on Wave so I'm not sure if any of these features are in the new version but these three things would make Wave so much smoother for me: * Can you identify on the line of the transaction whether a receipt/document is attached? At the moment I merge the receipt with the automated download to make the one t…

  • This feature was actually available in the "old" Wave and very helpful when collaborators and auditors want to quickly check the original receipt related to the transaction. Now I believe there is no other way than to search for the original receipt according to date or name. With a large number of receipts, this is not practical.

  • Hello! I'm new to Wave. I Imported this year's bank statements for a client and now I need to associate quite a few recurring expense transactions with the appropriate vendors, but I don't want to have to make the matches individually. Is there a way of doing this in bulk?

  • Hey Team WAVE -- Users need an option to ARCHIVE (vs. delete) Estimates. While I feel that down the road we (our unique business) may find a use for archiving Contacts and maybe Invoices, archiving Estimates is a must-have to "clear the noise/clutter" of the unnecessary past and focus on what what Business Owners need to focus on... live deals and…

  • When creating a new customer and clicking 'save', it would be nice to have options like: Save and create an invoice Save and create an estimate Ect... you shouldn't have to hit 'save' and move to another screen to create an invoice for the same customer, it's just too many steps. Thanks

  • Precondition: 1. Invoice was sent via Wave. 2. Supplier deducted and withheld WHT at source. 3. WHT Receivables account is on Chart of Accounts. Steps to follow: 1. Tap Sales and then Invoice. 2. Click on particular invoice sent to Supplier and tap 'Receive Payment' 3. Input the WHT value, Bank Account payment was made by Supplier. Don't se…

  • It looks like accounts are listed in the income statement (within their overall section eg expenses) in random order. E.g. Accounting Expense might come after Vehicle Expense. From what I can tell, it relates to when the account was created (i.e. the accounts that were created first appear at the top, those created last appear at the bottom). T…

  • Hi, With the new brand update, it would be nice to get an improvement on some of the neglected features, primarily search. Currently, there's no way to search keywords in the project/job name or item descriptions. I've had a few clients in the past ask for clarification on old estimates or I've had to follow up on older invoices to get paid.…

  • Receipt Processing - Order Category and Payment Account by use frequency or last used time I guess most people will use the same payment account for a business, when there's a lot of payment account, pick up one by scrolling down the list everytime is not efficient.

  • At the moment receipts are ordered by uploading time. Filter is only available by processing, ready and done. Hope wave can add order receipts by receipt date function. Also if add a search function/filter by merchant, date range, status, category, paid method etc that will be great.

  • I am new to wave and I am using it as my accounting software for my business. I do have a pos system that is currently running on my shop. I do provide my customers with gift vouchers on on my POS system. I have entered my daily transactions which are either cash or credit cards payments on the wave system as total daily transaction. How can I rec…

  • Two things that bugs me to no end. There's no bulk upload feature and the pop-up box informing me of the successful upload. When I sit down to do accounting, I'll have 30ish receipts that need uploading. It's labor intensive to upload each one individually from the same folder. I wish I could select all the files and just be done with it. Which…

  • We're happy to announce a new time saving feature for those repetitive transactions. Duplicate in a single click to save time on your bookkeeping. Please note that you must save changes to the transaction you're editing before you will be able to duplicate it. Also note that payment transactions and transfers are not able to be duplicated a…

  • Uploaded a receipt and have your bank account connected? Marked an invoice paid and have the payment import from the bank as well? Duplicated income or expense transactions are now easier than ever to manage with the merge function. Simply select two transactions that are both deposits or both withdrawals, with matching amounts and accounts…

  • You've been asking for this functionality, and we're happy to report the wait is over. Search transactions by description to group them to streamline your bookkeeping. You can use this feature with the bulk edit functionality to quickly categorize, add sales tax, and mark transactions reviewed in one go. What do you think of this feature…

  • Another new feature to streamline your workflows, keyboard shortcuts! When you’re ready to save the details of a transaction, simply hit “Ctrl + S” (Windows), or “⌘+S” (Mac). What do you think of this feature? Has it been useful? Anything you think we can improve? Other common actions you'd like to see us introduce keyboard shortcuts for? L…

  • A new feature to improve your expense by vendor reporting. You can now add a vendor on transactions. This will allow you to get a more complete picture of your relationship with your vendors without having to create a bill for every expense. Note that vendors can only be added to expense and refund for expense transactions. What do yo…
