Suggestion to have the option of include inactive cards as unticked by default. To have inactive cards permanently ticked seems odd as if you needed them often you wouldnt have them as inactive.

 

"Reports - inactive cards"

Please remove the default of "show inactive customer/supplier/employee etc in reports.

Make it a tick option to include and not a tick option to not include.

If they are inactive obviously it will be rare to include them in reports.

It would be great to have an overall setting for the entire MYOB file for include/exclude inactive items/cards/jobs/accounts by default. As the OP said, if we want to access the information, we wouldn't make them inactive.

Why are inactive employee cards still coming up as a defult?  This is driving me crazy constantly seeing these really old employee cards still appearing and I have to unselect to get rid of them.  Doesn't make sense.

Every time I do a Payroll Advice Report, the deafult setting for Employee is 'All'. That is fair enough. When I try to select an employee I get the 'Payroll Employees Select From List', the first time I run the report, 'Show Inactive Payroll Employees' is always checked. Can this setting be remembered please?

This should be sorted for all not just payroll. A default should never include inactive status. This allows for too many errors to occur by processing staff. Also when you set a new user, the set up shouldnt automatically default to inactive. Why would you be setting up an inactive user?

When choosing a report, the default is past employees are ticked.  This would be the exception that you would want past employees, so to have the default as unticked would be more user friendly.

Also on reports, eg leave reports, the end date defaults to the end of the current financial year, most of the time that is months away.  Why not have the current date as the default, more likely to be the one you need?

Has there been ANY thrust to change the default setting to NOT include inactive items ?

I doubt it. Why make life easier for their customers when they can make it ever more frustrating... Smiley Happy

Hi there. How many users need to request this change before it is put in place? I notice it's been an issue for several years but doesn't seem to have been actioned?
