Capability of inserting rows in journal entry.

I would like for this functionality to be added as it would make journal entry a lot easier. Being able to keep journal entry sets together helps with reconciliation and being able to make sure my debits and credits are in balance within the entry set. The way it is set up now doesn't allow for this, as we are only able to add additional lines at the top and everything pushes down. So if I have a payroll entry numbered 1 thru 5 and then add additional payroll entries (6 thru 15) and I realize I missed recording overtime on the entry number 1 thru 5, I would like to be able to go and insert line 6 and add the missing information and the numbering for the other entries to renumbered instead of the missing entry being line 16!

    It is now February 1st, 2024.....I'm trying to add a row in the middle of my NXT journal entry and it's still not possible. It keeps putting it at the bottom of the journal entry. How is this possible? Does Blackbaud read, or even care about, these??? Sincerely, Disappointed.

    We regularly add rows in the middle of journal entries to keep them in the order we want them to be in. I think this is normal accounting. This has been an idea for a couple years. I hope it will be addressed in the near future.

    This is critical to our functionality. We switch back to the database side weekly if not daily because of either updated information for an entry that was previously made or to keep our batch information in date order when we receive information. Having to duplicate and delete large entries in order to do this in the web-based side is too cumbersome.

    Journal entries are backup which could be referred to in the future, sometimes multiple times. Not having the flexibility to add rows/lines wherever we need them, so that the entry flows in logical order, makes it very difficult to analyze an entry, especially a lengthy one. I don't recall ever working with an accounting program that didn't allow you to do this (including database view).
