Using %period% in recurring invoices

Recommended Posts

I want my recurring invoices to display billing period that is  for example Januari 1 to january 31

I used %period% in description line and set it to monthly, but I get single date instead of from - to  dates. What is the correct procedure ?

Hi,

It is sometimes useful to print the actual period on the invoice to the customer to explain what period the invoice is for. When this option is checked, the text %period% in the Description field will be replaced by the date of the actual period of the invoice, in other words, what will be reflected is the actual invoice date not the current date.

Regards,

I just created over a 100 recurring  invoices with the %period% inserted in description , frequency monthly and every one of the invoices has a single date instead of from- to  dates . The date is actually the invoice date (yesterday)

What version you are using? 

I am using 5.01 version and I used %period% in invoice description but I see date as "06/02/17 to 07/01/17". I want the date to be either 07/01/2017 or "07/01/17 to 07/31/17". Any options to get the date as I needed?

5.01 just like you . Somehow I got the 2 dates to show but it displays them just like yours. I gave up on using %period% but now if I edit those out of recurring invoices, it wants to change the whole cycle instead of just editing the content of the invoice.. This program is good, but recurring invoices need some work as right now it's not a straight forward function

I think there is a product defect/bug in this area. I tried creating single/one time invoice with %period% in invoice description and it shows only 07/01/2017. If I create a recurring invoice then it shows the gap between 2 invoices. For example, I tried creating recurring invoice with start date as 01/01/2017. Here is what I see in those invoices:

1. 01/01/17

2. 01/02/17 to 02/01/17

3. 02/02/17 to 03/01/17

4. 03/02/17 to 04/01/17

5. 04/02/17 to 05/01/17

6. 05/02/17 to 06/01/17

7. 06/02/17 to 07/01/17

Can someone from technical support review this, please?
