Recurring Invoice - Automatic Mail


#1

Hello,

I’ve managed to create a recurring invoice. However, I would like to send the invoice to the debtor via e-mail automatically. Is this possible?

Smtp settings, I can send e-mail.

Thank you.

Hi omer,
Maybe, just maybe there’s a cron job you can set up.
You basically tell the server to:

  • gather all emails that should be sent
  • send the emails
    and you tell the server to execute the job at certain times (once per month, once per week, stuff like that)

The functionality for automaticaly sending e-mails is in IP. However, as Underdog said, you need a cronjob to generate the invoices.
My advice would be to test the generation of Invoices by the cronjob first before you send them automaticaly.
Why this advice? Because I still have an issue where the recurring invoices that are generated by the cronjob are not correct. Some are double and others are missing (see the example in topic 7852: Recurring invoices are corrupting my invoice numbering
So i have to manualy correct these issues. Maybe i am the only one with this problem because i did not have any reply on the topic :frowning:
