Recurring transactions: Take latest Item pricing, not originally setup price

When using recurring sales, the item price remains as saved and does not change when the actual price may fluctuate up or down. This is potentially costly in either lost sales or lost profit. We use this to save common jobs that have many items but our prices vary regularly which are updated under items list but do not change anything that is in recurring sales.

my suggestion is there should be a preference to be able to allow this or not,( although I could not see why you would not.)

this has been a most frustrating issue 

 

thankyou

Hi @Colin1

 

Thank you for your idea in regards to AccountRight and recurring invoices with item prices. I would encourage other users that would like to see when the item's price to change to update the recurring invoices to vote and comment if required for this idea.

Yes, I would highly support the idea of being able to refresh/confirm item pricing on recurring invoices.  The only way I have found to do it is to force a re-look at the item file by making a change to the item identifier, then returning to the original item identifier.  Can also delete the line and re-enter - all of which is very time consuming stuff.  We should be able to see a "reconfirm item price" button which then gets MYOB to re-read the inventory file for the item price.

Renders Accountright 2018.3 completely unusable for dropping this feature, thanks for the lost 100 hours or so and refund, just great.

Could not be more disappointed, especially seeing so many complaints about this online and clearly MYOB doesn't care.

In Account Right Live the recurring sales window does not update the item price like it does in Premier v19

This is invaluable when processing large numbers of recurring sale transactions with large number of items

on each sale. Once you have learned to rely on this feature and utilize it hundreds of times a day you cannot

go back and there is no way to manually update hundreds of prices every single day.

I have already updated to Accountright live and after discovering this feature has been left out, I had to rollback

to v19. I will now have to move away from MYOB because the STP deadline is looming and I am unable to move forward with MYOB. This was a great feature and has rendered MYOB useless to my business by excluding it

in the update.  I would love to see it back in the update and would purchase in a second if it was.

Thanks

I have a client wanting to use recurring invoice transactions in AR2018.4 to speed up his invoicing process for say 100 clients. However I find that when the price of an item is changed, rather than only needing to update the price on the Item Card, it seems all recurring invoice entries that include that item must be changed as well.

The updated price on the Item Card does not flow through to subsequent invoices (processed after the price update on the Item Card) that are based on the recurring entry.

I find it difficult to imagine a situation where a user would not want an updated price to flow through from the Item Card. Changing 100 recurring transactions when the price of one product increases is tedious.

PLEASE YES, HURRY UP.

This was already a well used feature in previous versions. Can't imagine why MYOB would remove it.

When could keeping the old price of anything benefit anyone anywhere ever?

What do you do if there is 200 items on a recurring sale?  and you use 20 or 30 of them a day?

(here is an actual count of mouse clicks required since MYOB removed this feature-9 individual cliks to update 1 item price,

multiplied by 200 items and multliplied by using 20 recurring sales would total 36,000 clicks per day and 30 uses would total 54,000 clicks per day!!)

JUST MANUALLY UPDATE EACH ONE THEY SAY.......

If there was 1 or 2 items you wouldn't even need it to be recurring !!!!

PLEASE PUT THAT FEATURE BACK, YOU'RE KILLING ME.

So......I have to stay on the OLD UNSUPPORTED MYOB until you do and now have to deal with Windows 7 not longer being supported!!!
