Reference field incorrect in Altru

When viewing your general ledger post report in Altru you may notice that the reference field for some of your transactions may be incorrect. This could be caused by adding a reference on the add a payment screen when entering the transaction in Altru
This is performing as designed. When a user defines a value in the payment reference field that value will take priority and the default option will not populate on the post to GL report.
