    Thanks for the answer.

    It seems complicated, because if I remove $accountDetails I will need to find a way how to get all current entries separately with an exception of the company field and of course to format the “new” content.

    I already use one of the custom designs and this company field is present there. If I remove it from the invoice design it will be removed from both custom deisgns because this change is general, right?

    I should therefore click on modify the design and edit the code (1 of 3 custom designs available)?

    If so then under what row I can make these changes, please? I was not able to find anything related to the company field. There are only variables present like e.g. $invoiceDetails.

    I thought that I will be able to archieve two different email templates for reminders which is possible, but it will also break the template for new invoices. Not sure how to change the code to have both working at the same time since I am not familiar with the app (and Symfony) that much. Hopefuly this bug will be fixed in one of the next versions of the app. Thanks for the help!

    I have run into another huge problem. I was kind of worried that both new invoices and reminders are linked to the same default text. Now I am affraid that my original assumption was correct.

    Both of them are using the following default text after the reset:
    ‘invoice_message_button’

    I therefore can not make any reminder template language related changes because it will automatically affect email template for new invoices (e.g. I will be telling the customer that his invoice was not paid. But during the new invoice creation that of course does not make any sense).

    Perhaps this can be archieved with a few PHP changes?

    I think that it might be a bug, because ‘invoice_subject’ is different than the one used for reminders.

    Thank you! That worked.

    I am having one more problem with the subject. I need to have 3 different subjects for my first, second and third reminder, but there seems to be only one configurable text:
    'reminder_subject'

    I think that “Kč” might be the issue. In all working QR codes I have found so far there were no currency signs (Kč) or codes (CZK).

    I think that I know what confused me.

    There are two translations containing relevant text:
    ‘invoice_message’ = new invoices
    ‘invoice_message_button’ = reminders

    The problem I face now is that when I edit the default text everything is formatted as expected (using HTML in the php file), but for some reason it still shows $client, $emailSignature and $viewButton variables even when I do not have such variables in the new modified default text now.

    I guess that I will also need to edit some php files from the app itself then?

    I understand that part, but as mentioned above. My question is whether “new invoice” emails and “reminder” emails dont have the same default text. If yes then this will not work for me, because I need to have different text for new invoices and reminders.

    in reply to: EPC-QR-Code #21950

    Magic
    Participant

    I have decided to create two invoice templates (= 2 QR codes) to solve the problem described in my last post.

    QR code is being generated, invoice number works fine, but $invoice.balanceAmount and $invoice.amount produces the wrong output.

    It shows AM:”1 000,00 Kč”, but I need it to be “AM:1000,00” or “AM:1000“. Any bank payment app that I have tried therefore skips the price field. Is there any way how to archieve that, please?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the answer.

    I am looking at those translations in texts.php and it seems that Invoice email template (= new invoice email) is using the same text as Reminders (= reminder emails).

    'invoice_message' => 'To view your invoice for :amount, click the link below.',

    I need to have the reminder with different texts than the “new invoice email”. Is there any way how to archieve that, please? Perhaps I am missing something?

    Thanks.

    Btw. I pressume that Invoice email templates are the same case? I also need to send them in at least 2 predefined templates according to the client`s language (incl. reccuring invoices). If there is a way to translate it using language files and to preserve formatting + variables that would be great.

    Participant

    Thanks for the answer.

    That is a problem because the default translations are not sufficient.

    Can I somehow edit all 4 email reminder templates in translation files for each language (incl. formatting and variables) and then reset to the default as mentioned above to archieve the desired look?

    Participant

    Thanks for the answer.

    I have already added the QR code and it works fine, but the problem is that I have 2 bank accounts (currently added as custom field).

    For each invoice I choose one of those two bank accounts from the dropdown and I need the corresponding QR code to be used (depending on the bank account) on the invoice, because it will hold the bank account number which is important for the payment.

    E.g.:
    Bank account number for EUR – 1st QR code
    Bank account number for USD – 2nd QR code

    For such reason I can not simply hardcode one QR code.

    When I am thinking about it there might be an option to have 2 custom designs, but like this I will be limited to 3 bank accounts.

    in reply to: Recurring invoice – feature request => days #21937

    1) I can enter days manually (except February will limit me from using anything beyond 28 days and I will not be able to use any month with 31 days anyway).
    2) Is there any way how to fix that in the code, please? Like this using MONTH/YEAR on recurring invoices might be unreliable.

    Thank you for the answer.

    If I will use Product Fields in the way you have described above do you think that there is a way to archieve the following?

    1) Price = Quantity * Unit Price = Price column (currently missing – just for one row)
    2) VAT = Quantity * Unit Price * %VAT = VAT column (currently missing- just for one row)

    Thanks. I have edited my post above in the meantime.

    It actually works fine – only the admin interface is not showing the tax with 0%. Please do not change the rest (preview, export behaviour) then :-).

    Thanks for the answer.

    From what I understand Reminders are sent to clients that have not paid their invoices
    (First, Second, Third, Endless => https://www.invoiceninja.com/document/settings-templates-reminders/ , https://i.imgur.com/i476f3h.png).

    Just for the sake of clarity I am only talking about how to disable recurring invoices to be a) generated and b) sent to one particular client.

    Recurring invoices are not considered to be reminders in terms of the app logic, right? Or perhaps I am wrong and the app considers recurring invoices to be “reminders”?

    If that is the case then recurring invoices (= “reminders”) will be disabled by the checkbox you have mentioned above. And email reminders (= not recurring invoices) are still going to be sent to the client IF he is due with one of the previously generated invoices (those before I stopped them being generated and sent using “reminders” checkbox in the clients section)?

    Note: In one of my posts above (SEPTEMBER 13, 2019 AT 8:40 PM) I have made an error and typed “one invoice” instead of “one client”. I hope that this is not the cause of our missunderstanding.

    Participant

    Thanks for the answer.

    That would mean to add all tax related columns and calculations into the footer. I will of course add “reverse charge” wording somewhere, but the rest needs to be there as well.

    Any chance to tell me what do I have to change in the code so that the app will work with 0 value without skipping it? That might work.

    Edit: I think that it actually works fine. The only problem is in the InvoiceNinja admin interface. When I look at the invoice preview the 0% tax is there. When I export the PDF the 0% tax is there.

    Thank you for the answer. I confirm that there is an option to disable reminders, but that will affect both invoices and reminders, correct? I just need to disable automated invoices and keep reminders for unpaid invoices to be active. I consider these two to be a completely separate things.

    Participant

    Perhaps we do not understand each other.

    I am already using the custom design and custom fields. Is there any way how to translate custom fields in the translation file or use them like I have described in my last post? That might do the job.

    From what I understand by using the custom design in this particular case you mean to take what I add into the custom fields and hardcode it into the template using the admin interface with its code editor (https://i.imgur.com/3aYh8b3.png), correct?

    The goal: I need to add custom fields in at least 2 languages so that I can export (PDF) and send invoices in those languages.

    Thanks.

    What about custom field entries with multiple language identificators? E.g. ENG_en: bla bla in english, XX_xx: bla bla in some other language.

    I need reminders for unpaid invoices to be active.

    I just want to stop the automatic invoices to be:
    a) generated
    b) sent
    for one specific client (e.g. someone with expired contract).

    The only remaining problem is that I need to use spaces instead of the line break, but it will do the job.

    Do you mean that I should edit the source code for one of three invoice templates in the advanced settings?

    In other words that I should remove e.g. “invoiceDetails” which loads the content and to code my own invoice (content + styles)? I am affraid that this kind of defeats the purpose of using the invoicing software.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the answer.

    I am currently using the custom dropdown invoice field to select between banks.

    The problem I face now is that I need to insert the QR code so that anyone can pay using their phone. Such QR code is hard coded and I have 2 bank accounts = I therefore need to have 2 different QR codes depending on the selected bank account (the dropdown mentioned above).

    How can I currently disable automatic email to be sent and invoice to be generated just for one invoice and not globally? For e.g. I end a cooperation with one client and I would like to stop generating and sending invoices to them.

    From what I understand the Auto-Bill feature is to charge their credit card and not to stop sending invoices. If that is the case there is a wrong translation into the Czech language which might be confusing.

    If I remove the start date will that do the job for this one client so that no new invoices will be generated and sent to them?

    I have one more observation.

    If I add recurring invoice and send it to an email (using CRON) then country is written correctly. Once I open such invoice manually in the admin interface then both preview and PDF export contains English.

    Participant

    I am currently trying to solve the exact same problem. This thread seems to be rather old and I thought that it was merged already, was not it?

    I have the default tax rate set in the admin interface (exclusive) and I use an option to add tax for each item (because in such case the whole invoice rate counts tax twice).

    The problem is that I need to select tax for each item manually and its not automatically preselected.

    My default language is not English (Czech).

    The problem is present in InvoiceNinja.com demo.

    Any work arrounds how to use translated custom fields (e.g. Invoice Field), please? I can add two different custom fields (each using the different language), but under the Company Field I am out of empty fields that can be filled, because both are currently used. This approach is not going to work anyway, because the Company Field value is being used all the time without my selection during the invoice creation. It defeats any attempts to create an invoice in more than one language.

    Thank you.

    in reply to: Invoices in different languages #21881

    Participant

    First of all thank you for the hard work! I have discovered this thread which is basically what I am currently trying to solve as well.

    I have tried to download an invoice (= export PDF) for the client with English set as his main language, but it still uses the current language that is set in the admin interface. The result is that mentioned invoice is being exported into the different language than English. When I use “View as client” it shows English properly, but I do not plan to share the client interface with my clients for now. Is there any way how to export the PDF in English without changing the whole app language to the English language? I can not do that because I also have clients from other countries and it will kind of defeat the purpose. Also I have the same problem like the original poster, because my mother tongue language (the one set in the admin interface) needs to be on the invoice for the tax purposes.

    Two different companies seems to be an overkill because I do not know if I can easily share invoice numbers.

    Thank you.

    The best way how to archieve this seems to be the Invoice Field under Advanced Settings.

    The sub-problem I face now is that I can not link the QR code to such bank account. I have two bank accounts with 2 different currencies. I can not generate the same QR code for both.

    Is there any way how to archieve such functionality, please?

    I have a question – is there any way how to generate the QR code with a different bank account? I have 2 bank accounts that I need to have on the invoice (two different currencies).
