Add the ability to separate the 'invoice date', from the 'post date'.

Currently, the invoice date that users enter within Expense Management defaults to also be the post date. It would be ideal if there were business rules that could allow that post date to default to be the current date, or end of month, rather than match the invoice date.

    Please change this. I am really curious why anyone would want an invoice date to be the date the posting is aligned to. The payment date seems to make more sense, but to not have the option to choose is ridiculous and a huge time-suck as well as a way to contribute to errors, especially trying to align expenses to certain fiscal periods. I really hope there is a way to change this soon.

    This is a critical fix needed in my opinion. We are having to use Expense Management for all of our regular invoicing because this is the only place where we can have approval routes, and didn't realize this was an issue at that time. Probably at least half of our invoices have invoice dates that will be in a prior period in FE. We use the invoice date to be able to prevent duplicate payments as well as for help in researching vendor issues. We just went live in FENXT in mid-April and this is a big drawback for our university. Setting up the FE rules to check invoice number and date to prevent duplicate records is now worthless.

    I agree. This is a critical fix. It's very time consuming to have to go back and fix it after the fact.

    We currently have to go into each invoice in Database View in order to change the Post Date on invoices submitted through Expense Management. We would like the ability to change the post date in the Invoice Request by the Approver without having to reject it in Expense Management. The submitter may also not know when the Post Date is and we have an internal rule that the post date is the Paid Date. The submitter may not know when the next Paid Date is. Once we close a month, we can't go back and post based on the invoice date from a previous period or fiscal year.

    Invoice date should be seperate from the post date - as they are two different dates. Invoices dates are used to track duplicate invoices . Having to manipulate the invoice date creates extra work and possible errors.

    This is a critical fix. It is making it very burdensome when trying to perform basic accrual accounting.
