Please restore receipt handling to how it was
The recent changes to receipting are a disaster for a company that takes deposits on orders before they are shipped becasue it is no longer possible to produce a receipt for a customer payment unless an invoice is created. Like most businesses, we don't invoice a job until it is ready to ship to defer the GST liability. This is in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
There are two problems with the current (new) functionality.
- We don't know how much has been paid by the customer and the balance remaining to pay by looking on the screen so we can't manage the client relationship, particularly if the customer makes multiple payments over time.
- We can't issue a receipt to a customer for a payment anymore at the time of taking an order.
You have badly broken the user experience.. We need the above functionality restored as a matter of urgency so we can manage our business.
