I like it very much now that I can choose between allocating the payment to particular invoices myself and letting it done automatically by the system when I do not select any invoice. This is extremely helpful when someone pays a lump sum or when I pay in bulk.
I found that automatic allocations change the General Ledger Summary report. They double the amount in the Accounts Receivable/Payable. Here’s the example.
I created two Sales Invoices (120.- each) and then received one payment (240.-):
When I allocate the payment to invoices then the GL Summary report shows as it should be:
When I do not allocate the payment to any invoice, and the payment is automatically allocated then the report doubles the amount in Accounts Receivable (480.- instead of 240.-), and the drill-down Transactions list shows as if there has been three payments from that customer.
So now the GL Summary Report does not match to the GLTransactions report. The same happens with Purchase Invoices and Accounts Payable.
I remember that in some older versions the GL Transactions report was also crowded with automatic payments’ transactions, and I like that now this is not so. The view is much clearer now. But I would like it very much if the debits and credits in GL Summary report would match to those in the GL Transactions report.
Thank you for the work you do!
