I updated a few days ago to the latest version. Working on my accounts tonight, I discovered that it was listing all the inventory on hand for the last four years including zero balances.
I found this post - Summary Accounts payable drilldown now showing zero balances and I see that @lubos has updated the program again to show transactions with amounts first then zero balances.
So I have updated again to at least have the open transactions listed first.
I don’t like this new change because it’s now too much information clutter. All I want when clicking on Inventory on hand - is to well see the inventory on hand - that is by definition the equipment that I have bought but not yet sold.
The same with accounts payable. All I want to see is the suppliers that I owe money to, not the whole bloody lot of suppliers that I have. Same with accounts receivable. I don’t want to see every client. I just want to see who owes me money!
I can go to customers or suppliers to see any information I want to see about them. Why do I need this in accounts payable or accounts receivable and why do I need to see all the inventory on hand that I have ever received.
I have looked at the extra information provided in the summary page drilldown and I will concede that the information is presented more elegantly in the summary page drill down compared to what I see when I go to inventory tab or suppliers or customers, however, the vast majority of time when people are clicking on Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable or Inventory on Hand, people are just interested in the outstanding amounts.
Could I suggest that all zero balances transactions be accessed by another click within the drill down. What I mean, is let’s say you have four suppliers to pay. So when you click on accounts payable it shows the four suppliers you owe money to and there is a fifth row that could be called expand all transactions and when you click on that it shows everything as you it shows now.
This would achieve both aims. Provides this new information when people want to do indepth analysis but also allows ensures that if you just want to see outstanding balances, there is no clutter of information which just makes it seem crowded. I liked the old format where I could just see the amounts I owed, amounts owed to me and for inventory items it was easy to see what inventory items I needed to invoice.
Now there is just too much information which I don’t need 99% of the time (people just want the outstanding balances most of the time). Can you please implement the change that I suggested @lubos as it will have the advantages of both worlds, with none of the disadvantages. Thank you.
