i prefer this to be implemented.
most businesses giving credit would have a payment schedule like every week or fortnight or monthly for all the invoices received during that period. and most customers prefer to see their outstanding dues which is shown as the balance due on the latest invoice.
i know every user will have their own perspective regarding this.
but even if its implemented i do not think it would harm anyone.
the reasons are,
- businesses who receive immediate payments will never have to worry about the total outstanding of the customer shown on the next invoice. in their case the balance due will only show the balance of the current invoice anyway.
- businesses who give credit, in most cases, would prefer the customer to be aware of their total dues towards them.
this can even be implemented wrt the preferred accounting type set by the user. users who prefer cash basis accounting would not need this i guess.
