Additional contacts do not working as expected
Problem reported by Alex Curtis 10 years ago
Invoice view page
The page doesn't show the Additional contact name, it incorrectly displays the primary contact name.
Invoice list page
Selecting an invoice with a check box and clicking the email button sends the invoice to the primary contact not the additional contact.
Sending an invoice to an additional contact
The "First name" and "Surname" fields are always populated with the primary contacts name rather than the additional contacts name.
If you have multiple additional contacts but no primary contact, this can cause problems. For example:
If the primary contact email address isn't filled and an email is sent to an additional contact, the additional contacts email address is automatically populated into the primary contact field. Emails then sent to other additional contacts will go to the primary contacts email address.
With the other problems listed above, this can easily lead to invoice emails going to the wrong people.
Quotes can't be sent to Additional contacts.
