  • According to the news email I got from Wave today, we can now use calculated discounts (yay!)!!! Thrilled, I clicked the "See it in action!" link – and got right back to my wave account – where – I do not see that option at all. So ... where is it? :smiley:

  • HI, so we use to upload multiple receipts, then review and verify them at once. With Wave removing the receipt upload feature this has now become a huge job! Does anyone have any tips or advice here? Or wave can you advise? Many thanks all?

Yah, itu tergantung pada peluang dan struktur pembayaran Anda. Untungnya bagi mereka yang menyukai peluang mereka (dan mereka yang tidak suka) posting blog ini akan memecah lapangan…

  • Can you run a P&L report with the current period column and the year to date column without having to run the comparison report. When I run the comparison it does show the information but it has all the "change" information which I don't want to see.

  • Hi, Can i opt out of auto-merge transactions? It auto-merges an invoice with a deposit before the deposit has been categorized. Now the account which I would manually have categorized that deposit into does not have that transaction so when I generate a report for it I see a balance that is incorrect Now I have to go back and unmerge all these aut…

  • Hi there, so I absolutely LOVE this new customer activity feature where we can see what communications have been sent to our clients! I do wonder though if it would be possible to make it so we can manually add communication. That would certainly make my life a lot simpler. Some of our clients don’t have internet or an email so I have to manually …

  • Hopefully, I am posting it in the right place. Discontinuation of receipts application is a very strange decision. Receipts was indeed perhaps the most useful feature of Waveapps. As it is now, there is no way to reliably scan invoices, while on the go. Consolidating receipts with expenses was not difficult, and in fact could have been automat…

  • I do several entries every month. It would be nice to be able to copy the previous months, make changes and save it as a new journal. I can't find a way to do it now and it would be a very helpful feature.

    My accountant has editor collaboration permission on my Wave account. She is wanting to use Wave for her own business, but when she tries to create one, she gets the message she already has an account. She can't do any of her own business because her permissions with mine are at editor level. How can she open and use her own account, while keep…

  • Up until a few months ago, whenever I manually completed a transaction and clicked "include Sales Tax" (which is HST in Ontario), it would then show a little icon named "HST" on the main Transactions page. This allowed me to quickly check that I remembered to include HST on all the transactions that require HST to be added. Now…

  • Hello, I have a feature request / idea. One of the worries with 'Cloud Accounting' (especially an essentially free service such a Wave) is the fact that there is a possibility that it's servers could be down or access to it might stop. I'm sure that isn't the case but I'd feel more reassured if I could also store some of my data locally 'just in c…

  • I would love if it was possible to have deeper functionality for estimates. Currently there is no way to update a status myself. Even if the estimates status's have a drop down on each to update them. Status's could be: Saved Sent Viewed Accepted Expired Rejected Further enhancing it with an editable Notes field for each status would be a gre…

  • Hi All :) Would appreciate some pointers on any Wave users that had some experience in printing invoices on POS Thermal Printer. Had attempted on mine which had a very blurry output. (Image as attached) Maybe there is some specific settings that could be explored or could be implemented by Wave itself. A Zillion Thanks!!!

  • I have bank accounts in two different currency, the default CAD and IRR. When I pay from my IRR account, Wave automatically calculates the equivalent CAD value. However, since the exchange rate fluctuates a lot, that creates a problem. Since I have money in my IRR account, I only want payment to come from that account, so there is no need for Wave…

  • I send invoices in Euros and the exchange used by wave is different than actual exchange rate used for the payment. So invoice amount does not match payment amount. In the past I've used as asset account, called invoice payment to record the difference, like you would with bank fees for an international transfer. But the option, in the transaction…

  • Sorry if this has been brought up before. I could only find one thread back in 2018. It would be great if invoices could offer a tip feature, not for my business but for my brother's business. He runs a chartering company and usually tip is 10% to 20%. He loves being able to be paid by credit card through Wave, but there isn't a tip feature like F…

    I am unable to see receipts uploaded from mobile app in Wave accounting page. I can see those receipts in my mobile app. How do I progress from there?

  • I loved Wave when I first signed up. I loved that it was Canadian, and to be honest, I loved that it was free. But as my business has grown, I have added all the paid options - running payroll and taking payments through the app. I would even pay a monthly fee to use the old version of Wave. The recent changes have made Wave so frustrating to use…

  • I would like to see a feature in the checkouts functionality that I could make a checkout that instead of giving it preset $ value the client would be able to put in a $ value of their choosing that could be used say for someone wanting to donate or some other application like that or also a checkout that could have a drop down with multiple chio…

    Is there any way to memorize a transaction in Accounting? I have a monthly transfer that needs to be split amongst 10+ categories, and it's a hassle to have to input each one by one every month. It would be easier to memorize the transaction and then change the amounts each month.

  • Hi, Is there a way that I can export the raw GL data? The existing report formatting when exported to excel requires additional work to parse, no option to just export an amount vs. a dr and a cr column, and it excludes valuable information like the transaction note. Thanks, Jay.

  • Good day all, my name is Walter. I have been using wave app for almost 1 year now and the app has been fantastic. But lately I observed that the CUSTOMERS page will not load even when all other pages will load and function well. Please help me with ideas on how to solve this problem.

  • Currently when a recurring invoice is initiated you have to manually go in and add them. This should be automatic in the settings. I have several invoices that go out at the same time and I have to go through each one individually and add them.

  • Are we ever going to get custom email templates? I send different invoices to different groups of clients. It would make my workflow faster.

  • When is the dashboard going to updated? We've had the same one for years and its outdated. I know they were making changes which altered the layout and did not fix anything. Now I have to constantly adjust my browser window.

  • Currently, there are a few pre-defined types of users available in Wave. However, these do not meet the needs of my business and several others based on the many chats that I've read in the community discussions. For example, there is no way for me to hire someone to do my billing without giving them access to my entire business. This is a hug…

  • Hello guys, I am a professional accountant and have a lot of clients I am handling accounting for on wave apps and sometimes I send them invoices drafted from wave apps but payments are made via freelancing platforms or from Payoneer because i am not from the USA Canada so i cant use wave payments and features fully. I have recently received a p…
