Invoice Number Sequence consumed only when the invoice is posted

Assign the invoice number only when an invoice is posted to avoid Invoice Number Sequence Gap when creating or cancelling a draft invoice. The idea here is to apply the invoice number only when the invoice is posted, for the non-posted invoices we could have a temporary invoice number with another sequence. This should be core feature.



Ex: For the 11th Invoice draft created would have invoice number : TMP00000011 when posted invoice number applied would be INV00000006 as this invoice is the 6th invoice posted.


We need this for our audit/controls as well.  We have a large bill run that takes over 5 hours to complete and always have failed subscriptions that consume invoice numbers.

We're implementing new capability in the billing engine to handle gapless sequencing more effectively. This is the way billing document numbers will be assigned.

I just tested this in sandbox and it is not as effective as I thought .... it can't manage the invoice numbers and the credit memo numbers as Connect Invoice Numbering does it... so in the end we are stuck using the add-on instead of the out-of-the-box solution. It's a shame, this could have made a real difference for us.
