Accounting Ideas

Sort, export or print recurring invoices.

Really happy to see that recurring invoices have been added, but we really need to be able sort these by the column headings and/or to be able to export to csv so that we can cross-reference these.

    just been discussing this on chat, i ask for this many years ago. one would have thought sorting by columns was a basic feature for any columns base list. Please get this sorted asap.

    What does in the works mean =- I have been waiting for this not just in the Cloud but Sage 50 since the early 00's and maybe longer.

    Can we have an estimate of when this will available

    Fundamentally and by default ALL forms/lists of items should have at least basic functionality for Search, Sort and Filter built in from day one - its not rocket science.

    I am following up to see if there is a search option for our recurring invoice list?

    Having the list presented in alphabetical order would be helpful as well, just like our aged receivables list, if a search option is too complicated. Thank you.

    Hi Sage Development Team, would we be able to get an idea of how much longer we have to wait for the sort feature in recurring invoices? Getting really desperate for it now! Thank you

    2.5 years and still in the works? I am a web developer and would happily do this for you as it would take about an hour, including testing. Why can't you just get it done?

    Search, Sort, Filter by most if not all cols
    esp. customer, dates, ref etc

    Functionality is there in main Invoice section - so can't be massive job to role out across Recurring as well

    I have been waiting for a search option since 2019!

    I have suggested that listing the recurring invoices in alphabetical order (like aged receivables) would be a better option then what is currently available, if a search option was too difficult to create.

    Fingers crossed something progresses forward soon.

    Agree, this would really help. Is there a timeline for when this option would potentially be available?

    I'm noticing this comment is from 2020? Is sage going to be making advances on this as it would be very handy to have this feature.

    Recurring invoice run is a great addition to Sage Cloud Accounting!

    Agree with previous comment regarding recurring invoices. Our customers have an option to be billed quarterly or annually for our services. Within these times, customers are added to our customer database and some are removed. Need to have a means to verify the recurring invoice database is up to date prior to the quarterly and annual run.

    A csv file extract of the information displayed on the recurring screen would be a tremendous help.

    In addition, in our case text entered in the Notes area will change for each run. Is there a way to replace current notes on the recurring invoices with the new Notes found in the invoice form setting when the next recurring invoice process is scheduled to run?

    This would be a great idea, just found myself looking at the recurring invoices looking to sort by column

    This makes sense - it could certainly be helpful when moving from a different program to Sage (or just moving those recurring invoices).

    At the minute you'd have to use screenshots for this task - which I agree is far from ideal.

    Hello Tom,

    We have been running two systems for the last few years as recurring invoices is a really large part of our invoicing. My reason for wanting to export a list was so that I could check all the invoices against my other systems.

    The most important thing is to be able to sort the list of recurring invoices; I now have around 200 set up but they are in the order they were entered and to be able to sort in date order, customer order would be very useful.

    Thank you for submitting your idea.

    Could you give a brief explanation of what you are hoping to cross reference with - or maybe an example of when this would be useful?

    I'm not sure I fully understand the purpose behind this, there might be a better way for us to help you do this or something already available.

    Thank you,
