Few Small Improvement Suggestions and a Couple BIg Ones
I'm trying to stick with Wave as it has a nice combination that meets my macro needs (accounting + payroll + recurring billing).
There are a couple of large items that are missing that I hope are on the development roadmap:
Purchase Orders - This just seems like a no-brainer. Businesses need to buy things, PO's are the right way to do it!
Sales Orders - Manufacturing businesses often take orders and then ship/invoice later. The lack of Sales Orders has been a problem with QuickBooks for a long time and that's what initially drove me away from their product
Some smaller-ish but still useful things that I hope also make the cut:
Payment Terms!!! No provision for this anywhere? This is a pretty important feature for businesses buying and selling things and trying to manage their cash flow. Hand typing them in Invoice Footers is confusing to customers and easy to forget.
- Assign Default Tax per Customer (at least as an option). Invoice Line Items should be taxable or not, but in most cases a customer is either taxable or not - so why not assign taxes there rather than at the invoice level? It could even really be a "default tax" at the customer level that just populates when you create an invoice in case there is a special condition you need to apply at the invoice level
Multiple Email Contacts per Customer. Several of my customers have a "person responsible" email as well as an AP email. So, for now I will have to enter one in for the customer then add the other manually every time. Would be really nice if, on the Customer page where I enter an email address, I could add a comma/semicolon/etc and add multiple addresses
Timesheets. Pretty straight forward, very similar to an invoice but a way to record and keep tabs on time spent per project/customer/whatever which could then be shared with an invoice as a supporting document. This is a nice-to-have for sure
