My Freeside installation does exactly that. When the next bill date comes
it generates an invoice for that date to the end of the recuring period,
whether it is a monthly, quarterly, semi-anually, or anually.
What does the invoice show for dates?
Mine look like this:
Page 1 of 1 10/01/02 FS-20021711
Plan 1: UnMetered Dialup - Monthly (10/01/02 - 11/01/02) $ x.xx
This top date is the invoice date, and you can see that they are being
billed for the month of October (10/01/02 - 11/01/02).
> Currently the invoice for customer will not generate until its 10/01/02
> and when it does it will bill for 09/01/02 through 10/01/02.
What do you have your package configured for on the
Frequency (months) of recurring fee?
