Dialogue extension

The dialogue for entering invoice data is implemented via the Estimates and Invoice Dialogue Extension.

  • The extension is installed automatically when an Estimates and Invoice file is opened.
  • The extension is updated automatically when a new version of the extension is released.
    The dialogue can therefore change even if the Banana Accounting programme has not been updated.
  • To try using a development version of the extension, see Manage Extensions : Using a Development Version.

If you have the Advanced plan, you can edit the source code and upload your modified code on your instance to Banana Accounting+.
