I send ALL invoices via email (using Outlook), currently Reckon Premier prints the email subject line as "Invoice from STEVE'S STRIPPERS PTY. LTD." (obviously not my real company name lol)

I need the subject line to be "Invoice 1234 from STEVE'S STRIPPERS PTY. LTD."  

Currently I add the invoice number manually but this is not a long term solution, due to the nature of my business if a client buys ten products they are issued ten invoices... this is the reason I need the invoice numbers in the email subject and also the reason why it's not reasonable for me to be adding them manually.

Please advise how I can do this

Thanks

The answer to this is it can't be done. I have asked many times over the years.
When you search in Outlook you can still search by the invoice number as it does search the attachments.

Thanks for the reply Rav.

The thing is.. after a bit more searching of the forums, it seems to me like this has been a feature request for at least three years.  Can I expect some sort of action on it or will my request still be sitting there in three years' time?

Cheers

Goaty, I had a few customers who would also delete the invoices assuming they are duplicates. I would get around this by adding a step to emailing invoices. Click the "to be emailed" option and save the invoices. Later go to the batch of invoices to send and you can quickly add in the numbers on the subject line.
Yes it is another unnecesary step, but when you have ignorant customers like that it is a way to get around their own stupidity.
Not every program will do everything you want but you can find ways around the little things they dont do.

Totally understand where you're coming from Goaty, unfortunately, there will be cases where certain things won't make it for various reasons. While I can't make any guarantees on future functionality inclusions, our product teams do welcome and consider all suggestions when prioritising where to devote resources to throughout the year.
