Support for Invoice2go Desktop has now officially ended as of October 31, 2017. This version of Invoice2go has been replaced by a new cloud-based product, which allows you to create and send invoices on the go, from your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Will I be able to continue to use Invoice2go Desktop?
Yes, you can continue to use Invoice2go Desktop. You will no longer be charged a subscription fee and will no longer be prompted to input an Activation Key each year.
However, as of October 31st, 2017, Invoice2go will no longer be offering support for this product. The product will remain in its current form and no fixes, updates, or online technical assistance will be available.
Our support team will not be able to assist you with any type of troubleshooting.
What does this mean?
Invoice2go Desktop will continue to work for the time being. However, external changes such as updates to your computer’s operating system may cause it to break and result in loss of data in the future.
If your computer breaks or you upgrade to a new one, you will not be able to use Invoice2go Desktop on your new computer. You will not be able transfer your software or historical data to a different computer.
What should I do?
It’s important to be aware of the risks associated with continued use of Invoice2go Desktop.
If you choose to continue using the product, ensure you are backing up your data on a weekly basis. That way, you will be able to access your invoice history and most important data. We suggest housing this in the Cloud, so that in the instance that your computer does break, you will still be able to access it.
Additionally, to further protect your Invoice2go Desktop software, consider using a backup software that regularly backs up your entire computer; however, please note that there is no guarantee that your information and/or software will be fully recoverable in the event of an issue.
If you would rather move onto our new cloud-based app, our support team can help get you set up with a new account. Please note that the new app will not contain any of your Invoice2go Desktop data and we will not be able to migrate it into our new product. If you would like access to your historical information, you would need to either manually re-enter this information into the new app, or reference a copy of your historical information offline.
