Copying Disbursement sheets

Accountants Enterprise with Practice Manager only

A quick way to create a new disbursement sheet is to copy from an existing disbursement sheet.

You can use this function:

  • If you import charges on a monthly basis to the same clients. You can copy the data from a previous month into the current month.
  • If you've entered disbursements to an incorrect date. You can copy the sheet to the correct date and then do Correcting posted disbursement sheets on the incorrect date.

You can also copy sheet data on behalf of another employee, if you have the Setting up employees to authorise bills and timesheets rights to do so.
