I would like to activate "Manage customer payments".
As Admin user, I went to the Settings/Invoicing menu.
I checked "Manage customer payments" and clicked on "Apply" button. I got the warning message "The name of the period must be unique per company!", but, the option was not registered.
Even if I don't change anything to the screen and only click on "Apply", I get the message...
I work with the version "Version 7.0-20130419-232454".
I checked the period management screen, and I don't see any problem in the name of periods...
Menu Invoicing/Configuration/Periods/Periods =

Could somebody help me to find a solution ? Thanks,
