Posted by CuriousRubik on 22 May, 2018

Memorizing transactions allows user to record transactions frequently depending on the frequency that the user has defined. Memorizing a transaction will help the user in entering the data and also set it  as a remainder.

The following transactions can be memorized.

  • Write Checks
  • Purchase Order
  • Sales Order
  • Invoices
  • Estimates
  • Work Orders
  • Statement Charges
  • Bills
  • Cash Sales


There are some conditions to memorize a transaction

Posting transactions containing serialized or lot number cannot be memorized

Non - Posting transactions containing serialized or lot items can be memorized until the serial or the lot numbers are given for the items

To memorize a transaction go to the transaction that needs to be memorized and mouse hover on
