New Journal Entry View is too limited

With the new update, functionality has been lost. A user is now unable to see complete information on a line without scrolling, making it difficult to enter data and proof before posting. The ability to scroll through the lines is also more difficult with the new "window inset" for viewing entries.


This update has just added time and frustration to manually entered journal entries. See example here: https://www.screencast.com/t/leL64f7h

    The updated version feel like the update went backwards in functionality instead of forward. It's just HORRIBLE and no better than the old database view so users should be given an option to use the previous version before this update. Using this new version feels like stepping back from XBox to Atari.

    There are absolutely no positives and only negatives to the update. I can't see all of the rows on my screen without making the screen resolution too small to see at all. Even what I can see is just not visually friendly because the single rows all run together with no visual breaks. I can't see existing or add new descriptions that are required for my entries because we have multiple payrolls in a month that have to be differentiated easily. It's no longer account selection friendly so I have to type in the entire number with dashes and then wait for the account to pop up to manually click and select. I can skip the first dash but if I skip the second dash, it tells me on digit 4 of 11 that the account doesn't exist when previously I could quickly type all digits with no dashes and it would autofill correctly immediately.

    It takes three times as long to add every single entry and that is just NOT practical in the real world.

    Not only is the visible Journal reference column way too small, it's frustrating that it allows more characters to be typed than it will save--I'm constantly going back to edit. Why not stop the entry when the max characters are hit (as before)?

    This is a big disappointment. The reference column is WAY too small, and resizing columns is annoying.

    Agree - and the columns aren't sized for the text so you can't see all the information in the Journal Reference column, for example.

    Completely agree. I can't believe I now have to horizontally scroll to see all the data fields. In my credit card feed, it only shows about 1/3 of the fields at a time, requiring a lot of scrolling. Multiplied by hundreds of entries per month, this scrolling is going to cost so much time. It feels like they took the design back a couple decades.

    I couldn't agree more. The new updates have made it extremely inefficient. Not to mention, it looks very old-school and is difficult to find the information I need on the screen at a quick glance. Everything is now taking twice as long to complete.

    I agree. The update was to be more efficient, but it is very inefficient.
