Both these pages have select lists of items to be invoiced and credited for but 
there is no where for a library to populate the lists with items of their own 
choosing.  mancredit lists something called a Baycorp Adjustment

This is the row "accounttype" in table "accountline". It's a varchar(5)
variable.  To modify the list of possible types, just modify the template in
default/en/maninvoice.tmpl and default/en/mancredit.tmpl
I consider this not as a bug but as a "missing improvment".

In a future version, we could create a "accountlinetype" table and link this
field to this table.

This is still valid

You can now add a value for the manual_invoice - but not the manual credit.

Perhaps this is something we could check with Robin?
He is doing a fines rewrite and might have an idea about it.

Hi Paul and others, 

Now that Manual Credit is available with two options of Credit Type : Credit or Forgiven, I wonder if the support of Authorised Values is likely to be useful for some libraries. 

It is a missing improvement but would it ever be used?

If you think that the answer is "rarely" should this bug/enhancement be closed?

Comment 3 Paul Poulain 2016-06-04 13:13:08 UTC
I agree with Irma, closing
