Proforma invoice

It would be helpful if I could create a proformer invoice and be able to convert it to a invoice the same as I can with quotes/ estimates

    Hi, Do you currently use quotes, estimates and proforma? If not, you can rename the quotes area to be proforma and complete that way?

    Agree this needs sorting. At least just add a 'Draft' or 'Proforma' 'type' of invoice which we can change in the Edit mode and also filter the Invoices page by.

    This is not a great solution as our customers often ask for a quote first, then we issue a proforma and turn that into an invoice. We tried renaming 'quotes' to 'proformas' but a lot of customers question why they have been issued a proforma when all they asked for was a price.

    You can change the name of "Quotes" to be Proforma in Settings > Quotes.  This will work in the same way.

    We actively use quotes - this is not a solution for us. We need the option for both. Xero has both options.

    I also need this facility for proforma.  Changing quotes to proforma isnt an option I agree. You need Quote / Proforma invoice or Invoice as options.

    We have the same requirement, renaming quotes to profroma isn't an acceptable solution.  We need both,

    I really need this functionality, why have you mark it as Will not implement. I think this is something very basic and needs to be considered
