When I’m creating bulk declarations or other entries, I usually have some unique identifier, which I fill in the “Reference” field / column.
When I’m copy/pasting things from my creditcard statements → manager, I sometimes need to do a month twice, as I had to import an incomplete month bc of tax filings.
To prevent duplicates, and make it easier by simply being able to just paste everything everytime, I’d like manager to detect pre-existing reference numbers.
In the confirmation screen (which actually needs some updates for UUID fields like expense payer, but that’s another story), I’d be great if existing reference numbers would be marked, and if there was an option to unselect them using checkboxes (and a button to simply uncheck all duplicates).
Another way to fix this, would be to have a button to find duplicate entries in the expense claims screens as a search option. Then I could simply use the bulk delete for duplicates.
I agree that is probably the easiest way for Manager to Manage the possibility of duplicate reference numbers. As it is covers their generation from any source and could be applied where ever reference numbers are used.
Yes, finding out you have a duplicate after you have created it is not has good as identifying it right at the beginning. The same way the codes come up when you type in a sales quote, the items could come up when you type in the code for a new inventory item?
The latest version (23.4.12) shows yellow notice when there is a duplicate.
When you click the notice, the list is filtered so the first duplicates are shown. Duplicates are identified either by reference numbers (in case of transactions) or codes (in case of customers, suppliers, employees, items etc.)
