Again, Gibbon continues to be a really powerful tool for us. Thank you so much for this - I only wish I could fly to HK to attend the course!
We are trying to implement the invoice issuing tool, and would like to issue these invoices in bulk without sending the email to the parents (i.e just a digital copy in our system, so we can print it out for them). The way we have been doing it at the moment is to go through each one manually, as the default option in bulk is to issue and send via the email.
Is there a way to change the default such that we don’t send them the email invoice (besides removing their email from the system)?
Mun, our pleasure, and thanks for the positive feedback.
If you edit /modules/Finance/invoices_manage_processBulk.php and comment out lines 227 to 338 you should effectively kill the emailing out of invoices.
These changes will be deleted when you upgrade, but what I would like to propose is that we add an option “Issue (Without Email)” to the bulk action drop down in the invoice manage page, so you can have the option to issue with our without emails. Would this work for you?
Yes it would really be useful, thanks a lot mate.
The other question I have is: On the page where I change my “issued” invoice to “paid”, there’s a difference to the receipt if I check a box to send to an email vs when they are all unchecked. When they are all unchecked, the receipt shows me as the payee (instead of the person in the family). Is there a way I can show the name of the person in Payment Details (attached screen shot of what I’m getting). Thanks Ross!
OK, the requested change has been made in the v14 development branch, and is available at https://github.com/GibbonEdu/core/commit/0856e2026332e399bbf9ec63d89e4af6c2cd2e5e. I believe this should be backwards compatible with v13.x, if you want to test it out and see if it works.
For the additional question, please can you remove the post from this thread, and create it as a thread on its own. To help us answer, please can you share a dump of your database via Google Drive or Dropbox with email email@example.com. And let us know what version of Gibbon you are using.
Much thanks to you for all your help. I’m not sure how to delete the post from this thread here, so if anyone else reading this wants to follow on, the new thread is titled “Payment Details (in Finance) for Invoice Receipt Showing Incorrect Name”.
