Better receipt tagging defaults


I like that when I choose a supplier when tagging an invoice, some fields are filled in for me automatically, particularly the category. It could be better though. For instance, I have some US supplier, which are always tagged as currency USD, No VAT, but when I choose them, the form actively switches to GBP and 20% VAT. I’d like to see the following fields correctly remembered from the last time that supplier was used:
VAT rate
Category (already works)
Project tags
Payment information (some suppliers are always immediately paid in full from a specific account)

It would make tagging receipts much quicker. Really, Supplier should be moved to the top to encourage users to choose it first and get their defaults filled in immediately.


I believe these are all taken from the default for that supplier, as set in the supplier control panel under “modify supplier details”.


Ah yes. So it seems the problem is that the defaults aren’t set correctly when you create a new supplier from the Tagging page

I’d still like to see automatic filling of Payment information - i.e. whether it has been paid in full and from which account. That would save a lot of time when tagging receipts.


You can do this with some entries in the custom scripts section if you have a power user subscription.

This would select for example the credit card as the default account in the receipt hub when you check the “paid in full” box;

$(document).ready(function() {
    nominal = 1250;
    currency = 'GBP';
    $('#dropBankAccount').val(nominal + '-' + currency);
