Issues Faced by the Users

  • Is it possible to change the number of cheques which is already been issued to the supplier who is a part of a system?
  • The user is unable to assign the check numbers. Say a user set up a new company and when he/she tried to write the check, a pop-up appears which says, print later and does not let the user manually enter the check number. Now, a user wants to know how this could be changed.
