    Hi all,

    Invoice Ninja sends the invoices on the first day of the month, but the invoice should be dated last day of the previous month, as the invoice covers work done in the previous month.

    Is that possible with Ninja Invoice?

    regards,

    Sorry, the first post was a bit brief. I should have said “I have configured Invoice Ninja to send invoices on the first day of the month”. Invoices are send on the 1st of the month (say 1 Dec 2018) but should have an Invoice date of the last of the previous month (in this case 30 Nov 2018).

    Sorry, it isn’t supported. The invoice date is always be set to the date the invoice is created.

    Hi Hillel,

    I had a look this morning to see if I could hack this by updating the invoice_date of the recurring invoice prior to it being processed into an actual invoice which then gets sent. It seems the app is using the start_date of the recurring invoice to set the invoice_date of the actual invoice. Do you know if updating the code so the app would use the invoice_date of the recurring invoice instead of the start_date would break anything else?

    As far as I can tell the invoice_date of the recurring invoice is set by the app but not used so I could run a SQL script to update the invoice_date of the recurring invoice just before it’s being processed into an actual invoice. The selection criteria (presumably last_sent_date) would remain the same.

    regards,
    Jan
