Firstly i would just like to thank everyone for this wonderful software. You are making my life so much easier. I find myself spending more time on manager and i love it.
Secondly, i would also just like to say that i am no computer and defnitly no program boffin. Sometimes i search for answers, only to get coding advise or some very lengthy conversation. I am more of a “visual learner” so the long explanations is not for me… so im gona ask my question/dilema/issue. If this was explained already, please accept my apology.
For bank payments on invoices:
Why do a bank payment for a specific invoice, firstly clear a previous oustanding invoice? The issue i have with this is the reconciliation nightmare it creates.
First of all, it tells you it is a payment received on a specific day, but when you go to the bank, you dont find such a payment. Or, there will be to receipts amounts but no such amount in the bank.
It also makes it impossible for me to pinpoint which invoice is still outstanding or which invoice were paid incorrectly.
I have a customer that i issue invoices to every week. At one point they paid less than they should. Instead of keeping that invoice as outstanding, it marked it as fully paid when they did the next payment. That means that i cant send them that invoice, advising them that, that invoice is stil due, because it shows as fully paid.
I just want a amount to be linked to a invoice. If it is short, then it should reflect so and not use the next amount to clear the short payment.
Hope im expressing myself clearly…
