Statements defaulting to everything outstanding

Started by Jeff N in Feature Requests | Done!

I am very wary of using the statement function, and it is another thing on Xero which needs too many more clicks than should be necessary.

If I send a statement to a customer it is because they owe money, and I want to see - and I want them to see - them to see everything they owe without havig to guess how far back to start the search - and also without having to click another date box to get it to show up to today's date.

I cannot think of a single reason why the statement function should not default to this. Better still, adopt the method used by a competitor of Xero, and that is to show everything outstanding, and also have two options - a) to only show invoices on which there are outstanding amounts and b) a date chooser.

Hi all - we've just released outstanding statements (all outstanding invoices) in addition to the activity statement already there (just invoice activity for a given period). Thanks so much for your patience waiting on delivery of this. Here's the information on statements in Help Center - View, email or print a customer statement.
