I presume that if I have three transactions today and I want the order in Manager to be shown in the same order as on my bank statement, I need to use Reference numbers in the payments/receipts form and have 1 for first transaction, 2 for second etc. I can do this, because I don’t use the payment/receipts reference number for anything else as the invoice reference (which is the only thing I am interested in) shows in the transaction field.
The reason that I ask is because the guides indicate that the payment reference number is used for cheque numbers, bank confirmation numbers and things like that. None of which is of any interest to me.
Also some Manager users use the reference field for recording a payment for multiple invoices to a supplier so they might put payment reference 10 and then on five invoices to that supplier, they have payment reference 10 which makes it easier for them to find the payment. I suppose because I don’t have a lot of transactions, its not hard for me to find a payment/receipt for a particular sales/purchase invoice should I need to find it for any reason.
I am concerned that I might end up wanting to use the Payments/Receipts Reference for matching payment transactions to Purchase Invoices or have some other use for the Reference field, which means I don’t know how to Order Transactions in Manager so that transactions on the same day are in the same order as on my bank statements, because currently they are never in the same order.
What is the best way to address this.
