Thank you very much for your suggestion @heidiwagga

 

Currently Essentials doesn't have the ability to warn for duplicate supplier invoice numbers when recording Purchases. I would encourage anyone else who wish to see this option added in Essentials to cast your vote, and leave comments below if required.

I find it incredulous that we even have to vote for something like this. Desktop MYOB always had this feature. How backwards to not only have it missing from what is supposed to be an upgraded version of MYOB but also that it goes to a vote???

 

There is no excuse whatsoever to have this not included. Please get your act together and make it so.

Not only duplicate invoice numbers but duplicate purchase order numbres, essentials seems like a big step backwards.

I would recommend to MYOB to find solution and add this feature in all MYOB plateform. It very important and helpful features. I was using different accounting software and I really enjoyed this feature in my previous accouting sotware.

Agree - this should be a standard feature

Please add this feature it is a large issue with the quality of data entered and also creating issues with clients making duplicate payments.

I think that Essentials needs to warn for duplicate numbers on supplier invoices. Can you look at fixing this please. It seems that you have had this problem since 2015.

HI,  

 

Any chance this could be done?  It would save a lot of heartache and time for a lot of people if you could add this!
