Easy Editing of Invoices and Packing Slips - Admin, Customer
Easy Way to modify/edit Invoices/Packing slips using a wysiwyg type editor.
This was marked as PLANNED in the roadmap, but no plan shown here,
Why I can't create bd jobs id
mmm, I was thinking about buying CS Cart. Maybe I need to check this out a bit more carefully.
Its nowhere near my ideal world where I could put customers into groups (inc groups of 1) and apply standrd templates. I take repeat dropship orders and a nice feature would be that my customers can have a packing slip e.mailed to my customers customer when I ship on their behalf.
This is a nice extra, but good e.mail templates are a must have.
Ability to add an product that is not in the webshop to a invoice would be great.
Ya! is on the "Planned for Future" roadmap list:
QTM there are so many variables that are not extracted from the database that require major php mods to functions just to get simple stuff like Delivery Time to sow per product on the invoices.
Please keep this in mind when developing this , the standard ifo available is just not enough
I'm speaking to Andrew at Packing Partner, his software is great for printing invoices from eBay, Amazon and more just waiting for him to include CS Cart. He has promised me that this will be fully working in the new year.
P.S I don't work for him, I just use the software and have done for almost a year.
I need this so bad, please start developing.

OMG I cant believe CS Cart are ignoring this !!! STILL not started !
THensel, yes I agree, The ability to have different Invoice templates based on customer location.
1. Add a "Supplier Account number" and "Supplier Instructions" profile field to the suppliers profile like you could when Suppliers was an addon.
2. Add "Shipping Method" & "Supplier" to the Customer Invoice, for each Item in the products list.
3. Ability to define a "supplier_invoice_xx.tpl" for each supplier.
This might be something that I need! Sometimes I need to make a commercial invoice for international customers ... Right now I use a commercial invoice excel template and just copy and paste everything over to it. It would be nice if I could make an commercial invoice template so I can just click and print instead of having to copy and paste all the information over to the excel template.
I'm currently road testing CS-Cart against Magneto Go. CS-Cart offers a much nicer look and feel for the website but the back end side for admin, with particular reference to customer emails and notifications, well, Magneto offers a far more elegant and professional answer.
I'm very torn now as the customer email order confirmation is even worse than that provided by Actinic. CS-Cart, get your emails sorted to the level of Magneto Go and you have my business for sure.
Michiel, If you "dont understand" then why did you comment??
As you can see, there are over 600 people that do understand.
This is now the second most important feature that cscart admin needs.
But it goes much deaper than just adding a line.
Some people that have voted here may be scratching their head, thinking "whats a hook?".
I don't get the point why this is so important, if you want to modifiy one row in the invoice you can do this easy yourself with the <hooks> future
Only 100 more votes needed and it will be a #1 priority !!
This is a crucial urgently required update...!
One of the only things cscart doesn't do well, look forward to seeing this implemented, then you would be hard tossed to find a better shopping cart software.

Here's an idea.
Expand the Blocks layout method to apply to Emails, Newsletters Invoice Emails etc.
This way, an invoice can easily contain advertizing and other banners.
There could be blocks for each section like Shiping address, Header, etc.
Newsletters would be so much easier to make.
Third in line, still not started,. must be a big job!
Also, keep in mind that when using suppliers, each supplier needs a different Purchase Order notification layout. And other Supplier info is needed on the Supliers order email such as
Firstname lastname (It had this when suppliers was an addon in 2.0.15 but I think someone from the Apple team got employed at cs-cart and decided that it wasnt needed)
Maybe make the templates editable in a similar way to the way Blocks are handled. Making all the variable available, and able to insert images and html.
Rated 3rd on the list ... but no project planned... hmmm
