Reorder line items on transactions

Paragon allows you to reorder line items in your transactions. In other words, you can choose the order in which to list the line items, regardless of the sequence in which they were entered. This can be used for different purposes, such as grouping items or listing them by price or quantity.  All of this makes it easier for your clients to understand any documents you send to them.

Step 1: Go to your transaction

From anywhere in Paragon, you can use the more button to get a list of all available transactions.  Select one.  In this example, we used the sales order module.

You will be brought to the module you chose.  Hit the detail view button to view the selected transaction.


Step 2: Edit your transaction

To reorder line items, you must first edit the transaction. To do so, hit the edit button at the top right of the screen.


Step 3: Modify the line number

Each transaction line has a line number associated with it (the first column in the line grid).  Click on the line number of the item you want to reorder, and replace that number by its new position.

The line numbers follow the logic below.

Given the lines numbered 1,2,3,4,5:

  • By changing line number 4 to 1, line 4 will change to 1 and the lines numbered 1, 2 and 3 will increase their position by 1. In other words, a line gets inserted before the line with the same number.

Although our sample above demonstrated this feature in the sales order module, this option is available on all transactions in Paragon.
