Send invoices and receipts via email to custom address

One small but annoying monthly task is collecting the invoices/receipts from various services for the accountant. At least on this side of the world, you need to have a proper invoice, the credit card statement alone won't do. 

Having the receipts and invoices as PDFs, attached to the email would make this a bit easier.

We need to send all invoices to an Accounts Payable Manger at our company. This person does not actually need access as a Member (and we do not want to pay for an extra member account). In addition to the "Email invoice" feature requested by multiple users here we would like to have the ability to set an billing email on our account. This email should be different from the primary admin email. This would make my life a lot easier since our Accounts Payable manager requests the invoice every month.

Thanks,

Heather

I've just wasted 20 minutes trying to figure out how to get the invoices to be automatically sent to my email, so I can forward them to my xero account. This is a basic business requirement and I just found a thread from 2015 with people requesting same. It must be automated, we do not have time to manually action this every month.

100% supportive of this option. It's a must for any company that has grown to a certain size.

I subscribe to a dozen + services and Dropbox is the only one that doesn't even offer downloadable PDFs (most actually send them out by email). Get with the program!

Same issue here, unfortunately, and a deal breaker for me.

 

I have people chasing me for the invoices and my productivity goes down every time they do so.

 

Either Dropbox:

 

a) Allows assigning an email address for invoice reception and sends invoices directly

 

Or:

 

b) Creates a user role exclusively for financial purposes (not admin and not file storage) so that they can log in and download them.

 

I'm not asking Dropbox to fix the ridiculous, pathetic state of how invoicing works across companies and countries, but one of the above would help mitigating the problem.
