Get rid of "Due Dates" (especially on purchases)

None of my clients use nor pay any attention to Due Dates, either for customers or suppliers. Completing the Due Date box is therefore an unnecessary additional step in entering invoices, especially as it usually populates it with some random date anyway (seemingly based on the current date rather than the invoice date, so I am entering Jan-17 invoices and being offered May-17 due dates, which is pointless and a waste of my time having to navigate over that box). So I propose having an option in Settings to do away with Due Dates entirely.

    I totally disagree with this. Due dates are essential for monitoring and prioritising especially when different terms exist across customers and suppliers.

    It would seem simple enough to have default dates - purchase or invoice - by Customer. I have one guy on a tight leash - I have another I give a lot of latitude to....
    A simple, per customer 1-7-14-30-60-90 drop box selector and once set up, the due-date jumps forward accordingly.
