Future payment dates

When creating a purchase invoice why wont the system let me mark a date paid in the future so the payment is automatically logged on that date
For example if i creat and invoice on April 10th which is going out on April 24th i cannot mark it as paid until after that date - i would like to mark it as going to be paid on the 24th - is there a way of doing this?
Same applies to sales - if i know a payment is going to be paid into my account on a certain future date i cannot log this i have to wait till that date or after to mark it as paid??

Hi @andywinship

This is something that we’re exploring and in places have relaxed the rules to allow this.

There are some areas of the system that uses the dates for reporting etc. so we can’t just remove them - each area needs to be looked at and tested.
