How to delete expenses that are in done state ?

I have expenses that are 'Done' and would like to delete them as they were an error.

The journal entries are deleted as far as I can see. The receipts are deleted.

Without seeing into the database I don't know how this stands. I know I have the expenses still showing up and would like them gone.


I have the same issue and would like to know the answer. As a workaround, I put [DELETED] in the note field and show it in the list view.

I just faced this issue... There is no way to do it out of the box.

You have two solutions, add a button cancel to delete the posted entry if any. than you need to add a button to reset the expense as draft. This should complete the whole expense workflow.

Without developpement you need to delete the entries then to change the state to draft in the database. This is the only trick that I found so far.

Hope that this helps!
