I am trying to hide app features that I used in the past on my bisiness that I don 't use anymore, but can’t because they have documents insode them.
For example I want to hide folders because I don’t use that anymore, but becasue there are some created folders, Manager doesn’t let me hide it from the menu. The same with Payslips, Capital Accounts etc. I am trying to unclutter my view now that I don’t have stuff in my business. I think it will be a nice addition.
Backup your businesses file and put it in multiple safe places with the current version of Manager. You have now achieved all data retention requirements of your jurisdiction.
Batch deleted functionality you no longer use in Manager.
Inactivate the tabs you no longer want to use in your business going forward.
I my opinion Manager is missing core functionality, by which I mean basic accounting accuracy and jurisdiction required reporting compliance (electronic data interchange, arithmetic in localisation to enable calculations based on jurisdictions intermediate values)
Getting the program to look pretty and extend into broader application areas is nice but largely irrelevant without the core accounting functionality imo.
I encourage this idea.
And also I’m going to come up with the idea of compiling common tabs.
Such as having basic groups (cash, sales, purchases, production, etc.) and each group under which sub-tabs can be folded and reopened when needed, it will be more likely to produce the required tab.
I admit I still need some time often to find the tab I want, even though I’ve been using the program for a long time, maybe for over a year and a half, and that’s still annoying to me.
I had put forward a proposal a while ago to put the idea of keyboard shortcuts into the process (and it was put forward a lot) that would make it much easier to work.
For example, if you press the “S” button to open sales, it’ll be a lot easier than looking at the tabs on it.
You mean create a new business? Because looong ago I’ve been instructed that the developer’s intention is not to do that.
User is supposed to retain his business, with all information. And each element he doesn’t use anymore could be deactivated. We can deactivate employees, customers, inventory and possibly every other element.
All theese deactivated elements have transactions that affect financial statements but nonetheless CAN be deactivated.
So right now in my business, ALL of the employees are deactivated because they are fired. For the foreseeable future we will not make and hiring and I, the USER, don’t want to have that tab taking up space.
Why not? I understood that items can move to the ideas part for discussion purposes, which then may lead to consideration by @Lubos for implementation. So it is he that will either support it, reject it or improve on the idea. Others in this forum should be free to express their opinion as part of the discussion related to the ideas. This opinion could include pointing out that it is of lesser priority than other ideas based for example on you initial post that:
A nice or good to have is already implying that the suggestion is of lesser importance as otherwise you would have used wording such as “I think it is a must have addition”. What I am trying to say here is to allow anyone to discuss and express their opinion about ideas as they see fit because it will only help when considering its implementation.
@AntonisV discussions are not personal attacks but they often challenge ideas and opinions. As part of the discourse they are allowed to completely rubbish an idea, that is what freedom of speech is all about and how politics can be perceived as rough but only are when becoming personal.
I can see how this might seem impolite but for others it may seem fair. I personally can’t say if I’m leaning either way but I can say this: regardless of what others reply to the post, the idea is going to either be the OP or another solution to the exact same problem of the OP.
Also while I support @AntonisV’s idea, I still can see where @Tut is coming from. This friction of ideas will only hone them into the gyms they really are.
That aside, here’s my take on how @Tut’s problem could be solved, How about this:
Clearly suggests that he doesn’t understand that this feature is about “Ease Of Use”. Probably he has other priorities, and he is just downvoting like sharpdrivetek says.
In any case I strongly believe that voting should return so that anyone can vote an Idea. Even let downvoting like Patch said. It’s better because it doesn’t ignite hijacking other’s ideas posts with one’s own priorities.
See what happened ? We are talking all this time for every other thing instead talking about the Topic.
I do not think the financial statements would be affected when you set something as inactive in Manager. We already have various items and accounts that can be set as inactive and we are still able to maintain accurate accounting. Setting a tab as inactive only disables a user from entering any new transactions in the tab. It does not delete the transactions from your business data.
I like your suggestion.
Another suggestion would be to group the inactive tabs as Legacy Modules similar to the Legacy Features we have under Settings.
