Well this is not a bad idea in itself. As you would know accounting must to be precise and flexibility gives room to creativity and possible errors.Esmond wrote:If we have a look at Xero, they require invoices / credit notes etc to be added. This means that you will not be able to add journal entries independently.
At the moment I think you need to allow that flexibility with LI. Xero handles expenses differently where a "negative" invoice is created and is posted against a supplier which should be different to customers. I think that xero allow to create indipendent journal entries I am not sure if you can leave them dissociated from an invoice and just hanging in there. I think that somehow journal entries should be always associated to something, invoice, credit, cost etc. This is something to discuss about it for future development after you have a solid baseEsmond wrote: Our workflow here is different, gives a little more flexibility to the companies, adding journal entries independent of invoices is possible as well.
We can have an additional reference ID field added, and the system validates to ensure that the reference ID is not used to prevent double entry. That will be the easiest way to prevent double entry.
Well, if you have a unique field that would be your search field however, if you have all journal linked to an invoice/expense than you don't really need to search journal entries.Esmond wrote: As for searching right now, I guess we need to look into that further.
The discussion is open...
