Sounds like accounting software made without accounting specialist. </p></div></p> Anonymous tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:SuggestionActivityEntry/79920760 2017-08-30T01:38:33-07:00 Approved Invoices:: Should have the facility to &quot;Revert it back to draft&quot; <p>Once an invoice is approved, it should have the facility to &quot;revert it back to draft&quot; It is because of the reason that mostly, my client ask me to approve the invoice and then says that it&#39;s not yet approved and then i don&#39;t have the facility, ultimately it is showing in our accounts that an overdue invoice is available, which is actually not yet approved. Xero should facilitate us in such a way. Thanks Hassan</p><p>Anonymous said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>please add this feature.
