You can update an invoice, quote or order in a few quick steps. But there's a few sales you can't change:

  • sales recorded in a closed financial year. There might be times when you need to enter adjustments for the last financial year. If you've already closed that year, you can still make changes by rolling back the financial year.
  • sales recorded in a locked period. To change a sale in a locked period, you first need to unlock the period. However, before making a change, consider how it will affect your accounts and tax reports (such as the GST you have reported).

Before you can change a sale, set the AccountRight security preference which controls if transactions can be changed.

To set your security preference

If a sale transaction has a white zoom arrow next to it, it means it can't be changed. To make it changeable (so it has a blue zoom arrow ), set the following security preference. If your user role allows you to change preferences, you can change this option at any time.

  1. Go to the Setup menu and choose Preferences.
  2. Click the Security tab.
  3. Deselect the option Transactions CAN'T be Changed; They Must be reversed.
    Preferences window with option deselected
  4. Click OK.
