In previous versions, when you clicked
New Sales Invoice button, the invoice number was assigned to sales invoice before it was actually saved.
This wasn’t a problem in desktop edition because only one invoice could be created at the same time. However in cloud edition or server edition, multiple users could be creating new invoices at the same time. This could make system incorrectly assign the same invoice number to multiple users which means the business could end up with multiple invoices with the same invoice number.
The latest version no longer assigns invoice number upon clicking
New Sales Invoice button. By default, the field will be empty.
Invoice number will be assigned upon clicking
Create button so multiple users can be creating invoices at the same time without worrying about duplicate invoice numbers.
Beside sales invoices, this change also affects all other documents which automatically generate reference numbers such as:
- Sales quotes
- Purchase orders
- Delivery notes
- Credit notes
