I too would find this feature very useful. Currently using Quickbooks, which I would love to drop, which has a memorized transaction feature.
Yes, could we PLEASE add this feature. It is a pain to go in each month and add these bills when we can check the "recurring" box and have it automatically generated for you for however long you are needing it. Thank you sooo much!
Is there any way we can please, please, pleaseeeee add the reoccurring bill feature? I've signed up with other platforms just now just because this is important to me. The whole reason I signed up to Wave is so I can track my bills in addition to invoices. It was a headache doing it myself with my excel sheet. I decided to leave the other platforms because they're just not user-friendly or intended for creatives. Wave is literally the best platform I've seen this far for what I'm trying to accomplish and it's tedious and a headache to have to duplicate each bill and not see a calculation of how much I'm paying each month. Please let me know if there's a way this can be implemented and a way to show documentation of how much total I'm paying in bills per month.
Thanks so much again!!!
I want to add a HUGE plus 1 to the idea of getting a recurring expense feature added to the platform. I'm not a programmer, but it seems like it should be a pretty simple thing to do - and given what a basic and vital feature it is to so many of your users, I would think it would be pretty easy to make a case for it as a priority.
I'm new to Wave and I would love to migrate away from Freshbooks but at the moment the lack of this feature is holding me back. I have dozens of expenses that occur like clockwork every month and it would take an enormous amount of time to manually duplicate and edit them every 4 weeks.
PLEASE Wave - listen to your users and add this oh-so-important feature to your product!!
+1 on recurring expenses
Just started using wave today, really like it, but THIS is troubling.
Wondering what is taking priority over this? Seems like a such a foundational accounting concept.
Can we get a commitment or ETA on this?
Thanks much in advance.
This is a feature that is GREATLY needed, another vote added.
Hi, I am Wave Accounting's newest user! .... and I am totally bummed that Wave does not have reoccurring expenses whereas Quickbooks does - https://www.goshenbookkeepingcc.com/blog/create-a-recurring-expense-in-qbo
Hi everyone, thank you for your continued feedback here. The more we know about your specific use case and exactly what this would help you with (besides the obvious), the more insight we have into how this feature would benefit our users. To be fully transparent, at the moment this feature isn't on our short-term roadmap, but we'll be sure to update you if this changes.
K I should have checked if this featured existed before wasting hours adding vendors and invoices. Come on this feature should be priority! Recurring billings and invoices is a major part of accounting...
Also I don't want to sound like a douche, but implementing recurring billings shouldn't take longer than a week. 1 day planning, 3 days implementing + unit tests, 3 days tests. The fact that you have recurring invoices, I hope architectural wise you made it so you can use it for billing too.
Anyways, I truly hope to see it within the next month. Cause else I'll be wasting days adding each bill of the previous 5 years.
I would also REALLY like to have the ability to create recurring expenses (bills). How would this help me? Well, I have a few recurring expenses that are the same each month (examples would be utilities, rent, loan payments) and it would be nice for me to be able to automate their entry. Any time I can spend doing less data entry is a big win for me. I think many Wave users would find this feature very helpful.
Seriously. It's absurd to call yourself accounting software without the ability to project expenses because we can't input reoccurring bills. You NEED to implement this feature, until then we can't move our accounting to this and you are literally missing out on hundred of transactions from us monthly.
Thank you again for your feedback in this thread. Once again, I'd like to reiterate Alex's post above, wherein he states that this is not something that is a priority for Wave to build into the platform at present. I do apologize for the inconvenience this causes your workflow, with regards to having your recurring bills taken care of by the Wave environment. For now, we will need to stick to uploading these bills as they come.
I vote for implementing this feature too - I was searching for it just now...it will be very useful, and will make the process easier for us. Thanks
Just wanted to comment that I planned on switching to Wave this weekend but have chosen to continue to PAY quickbooks because this feature is considered 100% necessary. Huge time save.
Bottom line: its not just a time save. Accounting projections needs to account for future expenses as well. Also, reminders are nice. Come on, so many people are requesting this feature. Just do it!
Another hand up here. Users have been asking for this for years now. The last open thread on this was 6 pages: https://community.waveapps.com/discussion/1055/feature-request-recurring-bills/p6 and you guys deleted/merged the one before that.
The answer has always been the same: "not a priority right now"
How many users would need to request this in order to make it into the roadmap?
