Today there is a strictly division for Sales Shipments and Sales Invoices on the one hand and Return Receipts and Credit Memos on the other. But I think this diversion is a little bit out of time.

we have the requirement (and solved it for OnPrem) that the customers wants to invoice Sales Shipments and Return Receipts in one step and in one document, so that it should be possibile to get Return Receipts into an Sales Invoice and to get Sales Shipments into Credit Memos.
Also the Combine Shipments-/Combine Return Receipts-report should be able to create invoicing lines "from the other side" and than generate dynamically an Sales invoice or an Sales Credit Memo depending if total Amount is positive or negative.

The same requirement is relevant for purchasing because there it is not possibile to control if the Vendor sends an invoice which includes purchase receipt lines as well as purchase shipment lines.

Thank you for this suggestion! Currently this is not on our roadmap. We are tracking this idea and if it gathers more votes and comments we will consider it in the future.

This is really needed in purchases, where we can't control what to include in the invoice (or credit memo). If the vendor sends an invoice with some return shipments in it, BC can't handle it in a normal way.

I don't know how it's possible that this functionality isn't part of current functionality. This is a must have, we can't control if a vendor sends an invoice and include some receipts and return shipments in it, and in the case of a return shipment in a invoice, BC can't actually handle it.

This idea is good and we already had such requirements. It's a question of usability.

Many thanks and kind regards
