Why are my auto generated invoices getting sent in the middle of the night?

My recurring invoices are being sent out at 01:00 am in the morning to my customers and there is nowhere to change this? This makes us look really unprofessional. 

I would like a feature to allow me to set the time on autogenerated invoices so that are sent out during business times. How do I request this?

Thank you,

Why are my auto generated invoices getting sent in the middle of the night?


Hi carldac,


Currently, the option to set a specific time interval for recurring transactions is currently unavailable in QuickBooks Online. For now, we can only set the day, date, and month. I definitely understand why you’d want to have this feature, though, since most businesses are conducted during day time.
