Hey superkeybee, Will you need to import invoices regularly or is this a one time event (in theory at least)? If one time event, have you tried to change the field in the database from “Sent” to “Draft”? phpmyadmin will make this easier if you are not a database person.
Yes it will be a regular process so I would prefer to have the status set upon import rather than updating the database. DB update would be easy enough, just another step in a process that we’re trying to streamline.
Thanks for the info Hillel. Item 1 is the most important to us at the momemt — is there a place in the InvoiceNinja code that sets the status of an imported invoice to “Sent” that we could easily flip to “Draft” in our self-hosted environment? The CSV import process has everything we need and I would hate to have to bring in a separate integrator service just for this one field. Thanks for any assistance that you can provide.
Thanks Hillel, commenting that out does seem to allow us to import invoices and they show as “Draft”. We don’t expect to ever need to import invoices with a status other than Draft so this should work. Thanks!
