When you post a warehouse document (such as an warehouse shipment) you get a dialog prompt asking whether to ship or ship and invoice. Most business will not want their warehouse employees being able to trigger invoicing. It would be very useful to have an option in the warehouse setup to prevent the option to invoice and just confirm shipment.

Is it possible to make the default option a setup? For instance in the Sales Setup where you can choose the option which you want to yse in your organisation? This also applies when posting the sales order within the sales order.

Whilst I agree with the idea, we have a mix of customers, some want invoices with their shipments some want delivery notes. So not allowing the WH to print an Invoice when they need to may not be the best way forward.

We have had to have a mod built that at the customer level tells BC if a delivery note or Invoice should be Printed (if delivery note then the invoice is emailed)

So the choice of whether the WH can print physical invoices, or Invoice at all should sit with each customer card? Maybe as an extension of the new document emailing changes?

I posted quite similar Idea: https://experience.dynamics.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=200440e8-9821-ea11-8454-0003ff68aec5 but as I stated on there, this is quite small, but needed functionality.

Usually the warehouse is responsible for shipping/receiving physical goods, not responsible for invoicing.

With extension, the default value could be changed but still a out-of-the-box setting/parameter would be better. Also the option/possibility to hide the invoicing option, as it is rarely needed

I have changed the default posting option from Ship & Invoice / Receive & Invoice to Ship / Receive in almost every implementation i have done since 2002 in version 3.6. It is about time this was sorted out.

It would be much better if it was a configurable option in Sales & Receivables, Purchase & Payable, Warehouse Setup, and Inventory Setup to cover the various modules.
Or at least change the default.
At most this is a couple of hours work...
