Prepayment invoices for purchase orders should be possible to import using the entity Vendor Invoice Line. Prepayment invoices are a critical part of the procurement process when the start of production or shipment of products requires payment in advance.

Prepaid invoice amounts can be significantly large, and therefore these advance invoices must be approved by the CPO or CFO. Usually this approval is controller outside of D365FO, and invoices are imported with LogicApps integration utilizing standard entities. When ordering is based on demand and consumption (i.e. retail companies), using the approval workflow for orders only delays the process. Vendor invoice automation already enables Automatically apply prepayment for imported invoices, so why not also enable the import of prepayment invoices.
