I’m having a few problems with the duplicate detection function when importing bank transactions. I see there was another topic about this a few years ago:
So we pay lots of guys’ salary, and quite often, they earn the same amount as one another. Normally, when importing, we only import date, description and amount fields. The date and amount for these transfers will be identical, but the description will include each guy’s name etc.
Unfortunately, this isn’t enough for Manager to detect non-duplication of line item, and so immediately doesn’t import those items. I understand the rationale behind avoiding duplicate items, but if I’m importing 200 transactions, and the only information I receive is that 197 were imported correctly but 3 were duplicates, I then have to go through each item one by one to find which were not imported, and input them manually via the “add new payment button”, which is obviously not ideal.
With that in mind, would it be possible to request that the import statement section include some sort of a review screen, so items detected as duplicates could be checked to see if they really are duplicated or if they are genuine?
