A few issues/suggestions for the
General Ledger Transactions report:
1) Can there please be dividers or at least headings between the major sections of Revenues, Expenses, Assets, Liabilities, and Equity? As my ledger becomes busier, it gets a bit confusing to interpret and sometimes difficult to find the various accounts, especially those with similar names like
Billable Time and
Billable Time - movement. Also, for accounts that have Code numbers, it would be easier to read the report if the Codes were to appear after the account name (e.g.,
Cash (-999)) instead of before (e.g.,
-999 Cash); this applies to other reports, as well.
2) It would be very helpful to have a Journal report, showing each transaction in chronological order, with the corresponding double entries for that transaction. This would be useful not only for audit purposes, but also for Manager users who are learning double-entry accounting and are trying to understand how each action in Manager affects the books.
3) Finally, there are still some problems with information not being conveyed in the
General Ledger report. While line-item entries in most accounts are printed with the customer or payee name and the description (e.g.,
11/12/2015 - Delta Airlines - economy airfare JFK/CDG and
04/03/2015 - ABC Partners - 06/08/2015 - Teleconference), entries in the
Billable time and
Billable time - movement accounts do not show the customer name (e.g.,
06/08/2015 - Teleconference). Similarly, while invoices are listed in the
Accounts Receivable account by customer name and invoice description without the invoice number (e.g.,
06/11/2015 - ABC Partners - Consulting services), they are listed in the
Billable time accounts by invoice number only (e.g.,
06/11/2015 - Sales Invoice #2115). Particularly without a Journal report, this makes it very difficult at times to match up transactions.
