as discussed in the Accounts Working Group we recommend a change to the behavior of the “Bank Account” Doctype.
At present the field “account” (which is a linked field to the Chart of Accounts) only allows for Accounts of the Account Type “Bank Account” to be selected.
I proposed in the Accounts Working Group to change that behavior to allow also Account of Account Type “Cash” for this field. I believe line 9 of the bank_account.js may be the place to change this behavior.
Also I believe (but that was not discusses, so this is not an official recommendation) csv import of “Bank Account” entries should be allowed at least for the “Account Manager” role. At present it is not allowed for anyone.
Any comments on this from the Community?
