[17.6.93] Improving discount column on transactions

The latest version improves Discount column on transactions such as invoices, orders, quotes etc.

The main issue with discount column was that it was always visible even if it wasn’t used. This was increasing horizontal space needed to display forms. In the latest version, discount column is by default not shown to keep view more compact.

If you’d like to add a discount, there is a checkbox below line items:

If the checkbox is activated, you will be able to choose between Percentage or Exact amount options.

For example, selecting Percentage option will add discount column where you will be able to enter percentage.


thanks @lubos for this great feature , it would be more great if it can be set default at percentage or amount

I am very pleased at the increased customisation of the program. I never use the discount field, so it makes sense to remove it by default and allow people to include it if they so desire.

Could you extend filtering the view of the program further and create a settings option called Filtering Program view and put the discount column in there under say sales invoice - sort of like the reverse of custom fields where you can add things to the view, with Filtering Program View you can remove things from view!

One of the things that I would like to add to the filtering program view is to filter the program to only show open quotes and open orders by default. I think that Filtering Program View in Settings would be as useful as Custom Fields in Settings


Hi i am unable to see this option
i have downloaded server edition today ( 17.3.20) in this there is no option available

Start a new Sales Invoice and choose a customer. Then the Discount check-box will appear. If you don’t see it, post a screen shot.

You are a couple hundred versions out of date. The current version is 17.7.6. The feature being discussed did not appear until 17.6.93. Make sure you are downloading from http://www.manager.io/server and not some third-party distribution site. Those are often out of date.

I have downloaded from manager.io/server
I got 17.3.20 verson

I notice you joined the Forum almost 2 years ago. Is your license out of date?

Download Desktop Edition, within Desktop Edition folder it includes Manager Server when installed.

I tried to update, But still i am seeing Manager 17.6.70 in my server Version.
Is Manager 17.6.70 is Latest. How to find.
Even i don’t see any releases in 17.6.70

is your license expired?

Even i am guessing so. How and where to check this.
If i need to Pay for Updates where do i need to pay for it.

i guess you had to upgrade before expiry of the initial 12 months license. else you will have to buy a new license.

@sharpdrivetek @lubos Is :point_up_2: True.

no Its not true… Server Edition is made for only one time Purchase…and you can use it for a life time.
If you use Server Edition then you do not need to purchase 2nd time… Just update new version by downloading the new setup file. @lubos @Tut can guide you batter.

Look at this answer… of @Tut

it will be better if you could please check the server edition page completely before posting wrong info.

server edition license is free for life on one-time purchase. but the updates and maintenance are only free for the first 12 months. after that you have to renew your license to get updates.

My life time word can mislead you…
I mean you will pay for maintenance… do not need to purchase again…
look the FAQ of the server Edition…

Yes that’s true…

I post in the reply in the reference of you above post… where you say … else you will have to buy a new… so I posted that… you do not need to purchase again…But in that I forget to mentioned about 50% Maintenance charge at every 12months… (And sorry for that…:frowning_face:)

the 50% renewal is when you buy upgrade package before the initial 12 month validity expires. if the validity is already expired you cannot buy at 50%, you will have to purchase the license again.

take a look at the below topic answered by @lubos

There is currently no renewal mechanism in place so no matter when you have purchased the license, the latest versions are still available to you even if 12 months period has lapsed. This is because you can’t really purchase renewal yet so we are giving upgrades beyond 12 months at no cost for now.
