33 Sales and vendor invoice handling

33.7 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 31 starting at page 31. Sales orders can be converted - upon customer approval - into an invoice with a click of a button.
