It would be really useful if MYOB had the ability to insert rows in Spend Money/Receive Money/General Journals transactions (you can do it in purchase/sales invoices) – it is extremely frustrating when something has been entered and a line is missing, you then need to redo a section of the journal if you want it in a particular order (or especially with recurring journals that may slightly change from month to month and you want to insert a line, but not at the bottom). 

 

This would be easily overcome with the ability to insert lines in these types of transactions.  What do other people think or am I the only one that wants the order of line items to be in a specific order?

This is a great idea and one we will consider for a future update. If others think this would be a valuable feature please vote for it as it will help us prioritise our work.

Deleting an unwanted row in a spend/receive money trscn was something that you could do in Premier by deleting the account number and then clicking in another cell. The feature has been removed in AR Live but I really need it back.

I have set up recurring recieve money transactions for daily reconciliation of sales and cash recieved through the til, EFT etc.

The recurring transaction has all possible lines in it but as you can imagine it varies on a daily basis as to how money is received. SOmetimes you need the petty cash line some days you don't etc.

It's frustrating that I now have mulitple 'blank' lines in many of my transactions because I can't remove them anymore when I post the transaction each day.

I might be missunderstanding but I have tried this and it seems to be working fine for me.  If I am in a spend money transaction and I blank out the account number and then click on another row the line is removed.  I did notice I had to click on a different row while Premier I could click in another cell of the same row.  If this is still not working for you I can ask support to contact you and have a look.

Dale - you have hit the nail on the head ... a lot of us are not "clickers" and we are having to take out fingers off the keyboard too many times - which is time and money... however ...

 

Kirsten - I'm still working with AR 2012.9.14 (NZ) and have just tested.  If I click / highlight / tab to the account number, choose the delete key and then push the up or down arrow key it does actually delete the line completely, and then consolidate the lines, whereas in old versions the lines were "blank" until such time as you actually recorded the transaction.

We need an easier way to remove a line in a journal or sale than having to delete the account number and then move up a line.

 

My previous software had an x in a column at the end of the line that you could click on to delete the line.

Hi @Kelly81 

 

Yes, I agree in as far as 'Spend Money', 'Receive Money' and 'General Journals'  however a "new idea" already exists on this link for that purpose  Ability to Insert Delete rows in Spend Receive Money and General Journals; although you can delete a line in a Sale or Purchase by pressing Ctrl+Shift+D as indicated below:-

This shows one example of how my old software provider does it.
