In the order screen, the keyboard shortcut to change to invoice is Alt+V. However, this is also the keyboard shortcut ON THE SAME SCREEN as Save Recurring, so the program doesn't know what to do. I have made this product suggestion a number of times over the years to no avail. Figured I might as well try here.

Hi Everyone


With AccountRight 2017.1, when a user is in the Edit Orders window and is using the shortcut Alt +V the system will select the Invoice button and convert the order into an invoice rather than have the Recurring Schedule Information window appear.

 

Save as Recurring would need to be selected on screen for orders, invoices would function as intended i.e. bring up the Recurring Schedule Information window.

Myob can you please confirm or clarify this. If this is correct, it seems like something that should be resolved promptly. I have voted it. Thank you

Thank you for your feedback DBS, this has been the setup for a long time, we would be happy to consider altering the shortcuts for this of course. It would be great to see what the rest of the community think. Please remember to vote and comment if you'd like to see this added.

So, a further 18 months on, we've finally upgraded to the cloud version instead of the desktop version and this is still an issue! How long do I need to wait for such a (seemingly, to me) simple task. Can't you just pick another letter? This is becoming more and more frustrating. I have been a MYOB user for about 20 years and think this is a very basic check that shouldn't even have made it through product testing, let alone years of user requests to fix. (Rant over - sorry, but it just doesn't make any sense to me at all and I thought it wouldn't be an issue in the new super-duper online version.)

Thanks. Sort of. If you use Alt+V it "tries" to do the save recurring but if you type Alt+V a second time, THEN it converts to invoice. We're almost there. Smiley Happy And perhaps the "v" on the save recurring button could not have a line appear under it when you press Alt, to minimise confusion for those users who actually want to save as recurring.
