Agreed, if nothing else, the staff member who creates the work order or emails a copy to the vendor should be the default sender or have an option to change the "reply to" email. As the primary account holder, I am not always sitting at my email, so receiving and forwarding responses to staff can cause delays in time-sensitive matters.
We’ve considered this feature many times; however, the use case we’ve discovered is tremendously low. While this feature is technically possible, and seems pretty cool, we’ve seen other solutions deploy vendor payments by ACH and the vendors simply prefer a check or credit card payment because “that’s what they know”. The number of vendors who will sign into the system to accept or reconcile their payments is very few.
If anybody has experience otherwise or feels this feature would get quite a bit of usage if developed, please add your comments and votes here so we can better understand the value in developing this feature.Miller, Brenda commented
Great that is under review, 2013 - where do we stand today, 2018??? This feature would be great if it was in use. Vendors will get payment quicker (they are happy), less money on check usage (I am happy) and less staff time on processing the check (I am happy again). Vendor simply supply you a copy of their voided check, enter the data same as the owner, send vendor a ledge of the monthly payment, they can reconcile what they were paid for. That is assuming you can pay many invoices into one total for said vendor.
I am actually a little shocked that this isn't being used as of today.
