Incoherent date in the “Date” column when the transaction type is “Expenditure”
According to the developer, the expenditure date comes from the invoice date and always comes from it (see documentation at https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Product_Documentation/010Alma_Online_Help_(English)/020Acquisitions/030Invoicing/020Creating_Invoices).
As you can see there, the calculation of the exchange rate is also done according to this date: "By default, Alma calculates the value of the transaction based on the exchange rate on the date specified in Invoice Date."
Now we know where the date comes from when the type of transaction is “Expenditure”. However, in other types of transactions (transfer, allocation, encumbrance, etc.) the date that appears corresponds to the moment in which the transaction occurs. For this reason, it seems impractical that in the type of transaction “Expenditure” the invoice date is used and not the date on which the transaction is triggered, that is, the “create on” date.
We request to incorporate a new column in the table of visualization of transactions that is “create on”.
We provide explanatory screenshot of how it could be implemented.
