I find that I enter transactions into Manager Accounting much faster than with my previous accounting program. Although the previous program had memorized transactions, I find that Manager Accounting’s cloning of transactions is more automatic and swift. It is more automatic because I do not have to memorize any transactions.
The only thing is that maybe the ability to clone transfers between cash accounts would be nice. Most often, the transfers are payment of a credit card or the like from a bank account. So both work well as cash accounts.
I can clone journal entries. But I don’t see that the journal can access the cash accounts. I like that the journal does not access cash accounts because that helps me enter the same transaction the same way every time.
I don’t see that one cash account can spend into another cash account or receive money from another cash account. But might be nifty if it could because then you could eliminate the transfer function altogether. And the spend and receive functions have cloning.
So, I present these two ideas. I do not think both should be implemented. I think either one or the other would be implemented.
Summarising the two ideas:
- Add cloning to transfers between cash accounts.
- Eliminate the transfer button and function altogether and allow cash accounts to spend and receive between one another.
Anybody like one or the other ideas? Have another idea?
