Any idea when we have the option in setting to warn when a duplicated sale/purchase invoice no. is used?

This has been requested since last year.

cheers

Hi Everyone


When creating, editing or viewing an invoice in the Browser interface, users will be warned if the invoice number being used is a duplicate of an existing invoice number.

Hi,

 

I was just reading your request and if you go to Setup / Preferences then to the Sales Tab you can set to "Warn for Duplicate" and set to "Invoice and Customer PO" and on the Purchases tab set "Warn for Duplicate" to Purchase Order and Supplier Inovoice",

Hope that helps you out Smiley Happy

 

Kind Regards,

Dee Smiley Happy

Dee this is ok if using Account Right, but it is not available on MYOB Essential/business.

Agree this should be a difficult "feature" to add in fact shouldn't even be considered a feature it should be a staple inclusion for basic internal controls in any accounting system. I have had multiple dramas with reconciling accounts and invoices being "double-paid" because invoices get uploaded to the In tray twice and the duplicate invoice number is not picked up. An ETA for having this resolved would be much appreciated

Hi @Lollipopsbay and @colleenWatson

 

Thanks for reaching out. 

 

Currently, this is a feature that is in AccountRight already. You can access this via Setup > Preferences > Sales > Warn for duplicate Invoice/Customer PO numbers or recorded sales.

 

Let me know if you require any further assistance with this. I'm happy to assist you.

Sorry Genreve I have MYOB Business Pro so can't locate the Setup / Preferences screen you refer to. My question was also in regards to duplicate purchase invoice numbers not sales.

Hi @colleenWatson

 

Thank you for clarifying the information. 

 

Currently, the Business/Essential web app does not have the feature to warn you about duplicate invoice numbers, this is still a feature on AccountRight PC edition. Rest assured the goal of the team is to make the web application as close to the desktop program as possible with the features. We will make sure to raise this to the attention of our team. 

 

If you need any further assistance feel free to let me know. 

 

Cheers, 

Genreve
