38 Sales and vendor invoice handling

38.7 Remarks

Why can’t I send a draft invoice to a customer and edit it to match their expectations?

You can’t edit invoices any more in LedgerSMB 1.3 because it breaks the audit trail in financial accounting. But in fact there’s functionality available which is meant exactly for this purpose. It’s called “Sales order” and its details are in Chapter 36 starting at page 36. Sales orders can be converted - upon customer approval - into an invoice with a click of a button.
