Sorry if this has been discussed before but I didn’t get anything relevant answers when I searched…
Years ago Simply Acct (sic) had the same sort of work flow where you would enter an invoice in one ledger and then went to another ledger to pay the invoice. Later they combined the two ledgers by adding a payment option at the top of the invoice form. When entered a invoice you could choose payment options (new boxes appeared)
cash- if you paid at the bank teller direct out bank acct
Cheque - check number and date was the same as the invoice date
pay Later - which is the way it is now.
This just reduces the amount of key strokes and speeded up entry.
