I’d love to be able to say that our standard terms (on which we pay) is 20th of the month following, and just be able to tab through the due date field and have it fill correctly. Due date entry is one of my gripes about Xero, especially near the end of the year (enter a December invoice, and you can’t even type 20/1 as a due date – or you’ll get the wrong year).

if I have a cash purchase and want to enter it I typically need to put the same date for the ‘date’ field and the ‘due date’ field.
So far the only way I have been able to fill in the ‘due date’ field in quickly is to simply type +0. Would be nice if you just put the same date in if you just tab past the field.
Would make entering those numerous small cash transactions easier.

Or do you suggest an easier way?
