I’ve just started using Manager recently and have been learning by entering data in from previous months activities.
I’ve just run into an interesting issue which may be a bug, though I don’t want to be so assertive whilst still being new to Manager so will leave the category decision to a moderator.
I’ll describe the situation in the context of one purchase invoice and one corresponding payment, however I’ve found the issue with both of the two pairs of these that I’ve been testing (one for an AUD supplier, one for a USD supplier).
I’ve created an invoice from a supplier, dated in May (i.e. within the previous financial year in Australia). The issue arises when I make payment of that invoice. For the record, I’m using the method recommended for payments against purchase invoices (from https://www.manager.io/guides/7821).
If I set the date of the payment to a date in this financial year (i.e. 1st July 2020 or later) then the Status of the invoice is marked “Paid In Full” and the Balance Due brought to $0. This would be bad practice, and lead to various accounting issues, as the payment was actually reconciled a few days after the invoice date. If I set the date for the payment to the correct date, however, the Balance Due remains equal to the Invoice Total and the Status is marked “XX days overdue”.
The reason I suspect this is a bug is that in editing the date of the corresponding payment entry in Receipts & Payments (after creating it as per the above link) I can trigger the issue by changing the date back and forth. i.e. set it to 30th June = Overdue, set it to 1st July = Paid in Full. Please correct me if I’m wrong e.g. if something isn’t configured correctly!
I’m using Manager Desktop v20.8.23
