Allow duplicate Invoice numbers if NOT the same vendor record.
99% of our payouts do not have invoice numbers so up until we upgraded yesterday, we entered the date and as long as there were not multiple checks to one vendor, it worked just fine. It also allowed us to make sure that a bill wasn't paid twice because it needed a unique invoice number within the vendor record.
With the new upgrade 6.3 you must have a unique invoice number for EVERY SINGLE VOUCHER we write. Prior to this it was only within a vendor that the invoices numbers needed to be unique.
We are now having to put into place an entire system of numbering invoices that we have never had to do prior to this upgrade.
I agree. It should not allow duplicate invoice numbers for any individual vendor, but why have it across the entire system?
And what about vendors who use a simple invoice numbering system. We will certainly end up with duplicate invoice numbers on our system that we will have to alter before we can pay them.
Sorry, not a fan of that portion of the update.
Thanks for the feedback!
We are reviewing this for future programming. Watch for more information on this functionality in the future.
