For the past two days, none of my recurring transactions have posted and the next date shows the date they should have posted. Even when I go in and manually "use" the recurring transaction so it will post, the next date does not change. This is too time consuming. We have been using QB for about 4 months now but if this is going to be a problem, I'm out. We have too many customers to have to mess with this. Any help would be tremendously appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Same here. I have a client with 17 companies and over 1000 scheduled recurring invoices set up. They were all set up on 6/25/18 as:
- Create 2 Days in Advance
- Start Date of 7/1/18
I would have expected them to have been generated on 6/29/18 but nothing happened.
It's 8:35 am Pacific time on Sunday, 7/1. Pro Advisor support should have opened at 6:00 am but the system is still showing as "Closed"
I can go through and "use" all of the templates but when I do that, the "next date" doesn't advance.
Yes. If you have any pull at all could you possibly see that this situation is addressed as soon as possible. It is causing a tremendous problem with those of us who have a lot of customers that are set up on the scheduled recurring transactions. Thank you so much.
Thank you all for taking the time to come to the QuickBooks Community to get help with your recurring transactions. I have some information to share about troubleshooting issues with recurring transactions. Usually, when anything memorized isn't functioning properly, this means there is data damage within the file.
This is easily fixed through a few different options. I recommend first running a rebuild and then a verify on the company file. This process will scan through your file, checking for and fixing data damage issues, and it will let you know if there is anything needing to be manually fixed. Here's how:
Note: I recommend performing these steps on the workstation the company file is stored on
Run the Rebuild:
Run the Verify:
If you find that you have no data damage in your file and you're still having issues with the recurring transactions, you may need to consider deleting and recreating them. I'm attaching a helpful article that goes over additional steps for troubleshooting data damage within your file.
You can find the link here. If you all have any questions for me about this or anything else QuickBooks, don't hesitate to reach out to the Community again.
Hi James: It worked perfectly last April (the last run). No settings changed. But even when I manually entered them, the date did not advance either. I had to go into each transaction, create it and then edit the details to have them run next October 1st. Took all day to do the 400 that way.
I get so confused in this community, the thread is marked as online, but the copy paste for rebuild is only applicable to desktop, anyway ...
Recurring transactions not working in QBO is yet another known problem
I think I found out something all on my own. It appears somehow all of the recurring transactions have become corrupt. If you go in and create a brand new recurring transaction from scratch, it will post.
You are absolutely correct. I tried this with copying some of mine in the company file and sending them to myself and that worked.
But I don't want to have to do 400 all over again. Per my conversation with support today, The next update for a fix on this will happen end of day 7/6. So I am waiting.
Good to know you can go to the list>edit>duplicate and then remove the old one and it will work.
Fingers crossed when the next fix comes, they work again.
This made my day. Thank you for the tank you. I sent this request along to several teams who assured me it was a top priority - - and looks like it all worked out.
What are you going to do with your time saved? hehe
We're always here to help! Glad you were able to avoid any manual workarounds.
I have two monthly Scheduled recurring Invoices. One is billed on the 25th day of the month but is set to Create 5 days in advance. The Start Date was 7/25/2018. Automatically send emails is checked.
The Invoice was not created. Maybe there is more for the dev team to fix?
Payment is automatically charged to a card on file via a recurring scheduled Sales Receipt. That part worked.
The other Recurring Invoice was created successfully.
Welcome to the QuickBooks Community space, dialedin.
Let me help you get the recurring invoice to work successfully in the QuickBooks system.
We currently don't have any reports going on about creating recurring invoices. Since the other recurring invoice works fine, I recommend you delete and recreate the transaction to help isolate the issue.
You can follow the steps I've attached below to recreate the transaction:
1. Click the Gear icon.
2. Select Recurring Transactions.
3. Search for the recurring transaction and click the drop-down arrow.
4. Click Delete.
5. Choose Yes.
6. Click New.
7. Select a transaction type and click OK.
8. Enter necessary information and click Save template.
I've also attached an article for more information about creating recurring invoice:
Feel free to leave a comment below if you need more help with the recurring invoice. I'll be here to assist you.
Hmm. It's a mystery.
I will do without the invoice since I already have the recurring receipt and respond back here if I experience the issue again in the future. Thanks!
Hey there dialedin,
I appreciate your quick response about the recurring invoice concern. Please let me know as soon as you'll be able to try it out, and I'll be sure to get back to you.
I hope to hear from you soon.
I'm still having this problem. My transactions are set up as reminders, they need to be "tweaked" each month, but the dates do not roll over. This is highly frustrating as our customers are all on different billing schedules. It's a huge list so I do not want to have to re-set up each one.
Hey there, BeeR.
Thanks for letting us know about this behavior regarding your recurring transaction. I’m here to help you get the feature working smoothly.
In situations like this, you’ll need to open the template and review the information. Once done, save it and check if any errors are displayed.
These errors provide clues on how to fix the issue. If you get the same result, I recommend you get in touch with our QuickBooks Online Customer Care Team.
They have the tools to investigate this further and make sure the recurring transaction will automatically post to the correct billing schedule. You can reach them through the following link: Contact support (US only).
I've added a link with detailed information why recurring transactions do not run but the Next Date advances.
Please let me know if you have additional questions about QuickBooks. I'll be glad to answer them for you. Have a good one.
I have been using Quickbooks online from Dec 2017 and it was working fine. For the past 2 months though, my recurring invoices stopped posting so I had to use each template and generate manual invoices. But the next date does not change to next month. I can't be doing this for the 3rd month since we have been paying for this service.
Our engineers are already aware of the non-sending recurring invoices. I'd recommend contacting our Chat or Phone agents. That way, they can add your contact details in the list of affected users. We're unable to add you from here for security reasons. You'll then receive an update when this is resolved.
In the meantime, please set a future Starting Date on your templates, so they'll be sent next time.
Thank you for your patience.
