Powerpay: need option to delete invoices

Need to be able to delete old/mistakes invoices. I've got to be able to clean this up and find the relevant invoices I need. I've had to redo invoices a couple of times because the features I assumed would be present were not, so I needed to invoice differently.  I've got to be able to get rid of the crop that's not relevant. Please open it up for me so I can delete invoices.

    Best practices in accounting are to never delete transactions. Currently, we are only supporting these best practices. A couple of the key reasons are:

    • It keeps your outside/tax accountant sane. If you delete a transaction, it is completely gone. Your outside accountant normally creates workpapers and reports based on your records. In many cases, they use those numbers on an ongoing basis. If you delete a transaction that affects one of those numbers.
    • You can include a helpful note on a voided transaction. The fact that SportsEngine retains all the other details of the transaction allows you to add a note for future reference as to why this transaction was voided. Deleting does not allow for that option.

    It is also good account purposes to not let one customer see a a bill for another customer.  I accidentally sent a bill to the wrong person, realized it immediately, but all I can do is void the bill.  Now the customer that received the mistake can see a bill that was supposed to go to a different customer.  There should at least be a way to hide it from a customer.
