Add variables to recurring invoices

Hi,

It would be great to be able to add variables to recurring invoices. For instance, if the invoice refers to a particular period - say, web hosting from June 2010 to June 2011, that you could add the date as a variable so it would always print the correct period on the invoice. (e.g. this year = [year], next year = [year] + 1 etc.).

What do you think?

Hello everyone

You'll be pleased to hear we've just pushed a change which allows you to do this. There's no official documentation yet (no KB article or in-app help) but we support two variables in recurring profile invoice item descriptions only.

${month} will insert the current month name (localised) as of the time the invoice was generated.

${year} will insert the current year as of the time the invoice was generated.

You can add to each of these using ${month+1}, ${month+2}, ${year+2} etc. Don't include spaces.

Let us know how this works for you.
