Bulk import of invoices would be a great feature, especially to encourage more people to convert to Manager. From what I can see on the forum it seems the stumbling block is on how to handle multiline items.
My suggestion: in the tsv/spreadsheet have all the common elements like inv#, date etc be repeated for each item/line that is on the invoice and use the inv# or similar as record key
It is very important for accountants. If you can import invoices or expenses then you dont need to spend many and many hours to create or clone each one over and over. It is very important what should be implement to manager.
I have mostly building company’s clients and they have a lot of invoices and receipts. It takes me so many hours to entry each one.
If you are an accountant, @StingerPro, then you should put your clients on Manager, either as users of your cloud account or with their own installations so they can send you backup files. There is no reason for two entities or individuals to be entering the same information anywhere. The very concept of importing invoices means someone has already entered the data somewhere else.
Chart of accounts consists of wide variety of account types (+groups/subtotals), each have different fields. Not to mention, it’s a hierarchy rather than flat list like other screens. So if batch operations are implemented on chart of accounts, it will be the last screen to be solved.
I still think chart of accounts shouldn’t be big or complex as all details should be tucked into subsidiary ledgers where you can use batch operations.
I’m moving this topic out of ideas because this has been already implemented a few months ago. Batch operations are not yet as user-friendly as I’d like them to be but there is a separate topic for that.
