Invoice Plugin: Distinguish quotation and invoice
I allready work with redmine's Inovice Plugin but would like to improve the workflow. Note that I am new to being an admin in redmine.
When creating a new invoice and picking products, it doesn't show any description nor title in the template. Allthough the product is created with that information.
Right now, redmine shows the last invoice number, that was used, under the field but I have to enter the new number manually. I want it to create a consecutive number. Is there any chance, redmine creates a number automatically AND having the oppotunity to change it manually when needed?
Problem 3 (main problem):
I would like to write invoices and offers in the plugin. I want to use the plugin to first create an offer that contains products. There should be a specific offer number for this (e.g. A123456). Then I want to write an invoice and be able to select the corresponding offer in the invoice template (with a drop-down if possible). The plugin offers the option "Create invoice", but asks for different details about offers, which I have to enter manually. This is very cumbersome and takes a lot of time.
Can the plugin solve my requirements? In the description of the plugin I understood it this way. Can I create offer and invoice with the plugin in different templates? If so, how? Or do I have to differentiate between invoice and offer by the respective number (e.g. A12345 for offer and R67890 for invoices)?
Thank you very much for advice!
