Order number on invoice while not entered

Hi @lubos, I don’t know if this is intentional but when I copy a Sales Order to a Sales Invoice the Sales Invoice gets the date of the Sales Order as Order Number. This while no Reference has been entered in the Sales Order.

I think this must be part of the new sales order status tracking feature. In order to show the status of the sales order, a sales invoice must be linked to it in some way. If you don’t provide an order number, the program uses the date.

I don’t think this is the case. This is not a unique number/text. You can use the same reference more than once.

It is intentional. Not ideal.

I agree with that. In my opinion I think it would be more logic if it just kept blank.
