This button should be changed to add another purchase invoice, and forget the selection of purchase (set this up so you automatically add a purchase). This would make things one step quicker. You don't need the prior invoices numbers, dates amounts etc. (you don't normally want a copy)
Genuinely staggered at this situation... such an easy scriptable request to add another button - both commands exist plainly, simply join the insert and new to one click... and here we are 6 months in and nothing other than a cheerful "do it this way! It's not the same but that's all you are going to get!"Much as I appreciate the efforts in the copy function, it's utterly inappropriate for User request.
Yes, this seems like such an obvious thing to have, and you used to be able to do it on the old version of Kashflow (which I miss, and would return to if I could). I don't want to copy the previous purchase, but I also don't want to have to press 'purchases' and then 'create' to go on to a new one each time I've entered a purchase. It has slowed me down considerably.
When you press 'copy', not only does it (obviously) copy everything from the previous purchase, so you have to go back and alter bits, (or basically all of it, with the sorts of multiple purchases I'm inputting) but you also have to choose what you want to create from a drop-down list, which means that you still have to click twice to get to the new purchase input page. I have a feeling that with old Kashflow you just pressed enter to save a purchase, and it went straight to the 'create purchase' page. So much faster.
'Copy' is absolutely not the answer.
