There needs to be a better strategy implemented in the supplier payment interface. We can easily have over 100 transactions for a month for one supplier and the current set up is beyond a joke. You are unable to bring a supplier up and then enter payment and use the tab function. You have to click on each line in the payment amount heading with your mouse, enter the amount and then click on the next line. If you try to tab at the moment it goes straight to save button.
The supplier payment interface needs full tab functionality implemented and also a tick box so that if you have 100 transactions for one supplier that you are paying at the same time you can just click on each box and ensure your total up the top is the amount that your paying and then its done. It takes so long manually entering each amount and very easy to be out one or two cents out and then you have to spend another 10-15 minutes checking each line to ensure youve inputed the correct payment amount.
The use of Tab key within the MYOB Essentials, Create supplier payments window will allow you to navigate through the window. This does include navigating to the Amount field for bills to pay.
I am not sure what the problem is v2013 seems to run the same as v19 - if you open Pay Bills and put a figure in the amount box and then click down the $$ column. I tend to put a larger sum than an eyeball calculation of the numbers, complete the clicking process, then click in the amount box. Of course you can use the exact figure from you Purchases Register.
If you prefer to tab you do need to set your cursor somewhere in the first open bill line but from then on it is four tabs per payment - not too onerous!
Very hard to go wrong as MYOB yells about Unbalanced Transaction if you still have not used all of the money
Are you serious??? Lol
i purposefully logged back on now to test your theory, everytime I tab regardless of where I put my cursor in the first line once I get to the amount column and enter the amount and then tab it still goes to save. Yes it's fine for one or two transactions but when you have hundreds of transactions to the one supplier that you pay monthly it's tedious, very tedious, that you have to click on each line.
im not an idiot I do realise that myob yells if the balance is wrong...... But it's not much fun going through hundreds of transactions and cross referencing the amount due with the amount paid trying to find a little error like typing .23 instead of .32.
this is an ideas exchange so I have put up an idea for it to be considered. It really would be a lot better if you could just click on a tick box it would take less than 2min to pay a hundred plus invoices to the one supplier as opposed to how long it takes now.
Ok, I just had another go myself and tabbed through as I suggested - no problems. Can you let us know which version you are using and try it in your Clearwater file, there is a mob called Underwater Springs that has several Open Invoices and about $21K in total - i have had no problems with tabbing through
Thanks for your suggestions here Ron, this is discussing MYOB Essentials, formerly LiveAccounts, which does not work the same way as AccountRight and the way that HEATHZ has described it is correct.
Phew I thought I was going crazy as I had tried a few different times and couldnt get it to work as Ronatbas had described lol
My apologies - the words Essentials Idea Exchange have been put at the top of the page in huge font for me to ignore and blunder on. Thanks @Matthew_W for picking up on it. I am off to the top of the page to vote for a change
No worries @ronatbas - can happen to the best of us! We appreciate you trying to help and we certainly hope the new branding for MYOB Essentials helps avoid confusion like this in future.
When entering a payment of a bill after creating a bill and pressing pay bill button I use the TAB button to move between windows to entre data but you cannot tab to Date selection and have to manually click on the date to enter the payment date if the supplier has already been entre automatically by MYOB.
The date on that is displayed should be the same as the payment due date of the Invoice / Entered bill as a default when opening the pay bill window to pay the bill.
At times I have missed the date selection on the pay bill page and only pick it up when reconciling.
Yes lets simplify this so it makes the Essentials software more user friendly than it is. A bit clunky for my liking.
