I have seen a trend which is disturbing - and I think it's one we should all work to avoid. Has anyone else seen parties forcing the workspace to balance? This is the scenario:-
Adjustments say vendor is owed X. Vendors side asks for Y in error. Purchasers bank has access to plenty of funds, so they give the Vendors Y as requested, without checking, even though they should be giving them X. The workspace balances, but it's what I'd call a "forced balance" because it does not reflect the adjustments. Total funds required for settlement are ignored.
The traditional paper settlement required accuracy, and if someone made an error on a bank cheque permission had to be granted by all parties to accept the error, or settlement would be delayed until correct cheques were delivered. Why is it that many people think it's okay to be 50c, or $100 or in one case quite a few thousand out?! I've had a lot of trouble pushing this point with other parties, and often they don't seem to understand where the error is. Are others finding this problem?

There are a few aspects to this.
So perhaps the real problems here are:

Thanks for this topic of conversation, it does demonstrate that system as it stands, has room for improvement.
I do believe that our discussion and feedback is a major part of this Community purpose.
As a forum to identify issues and make suggestions to improve the platform further. I know I have made a few suggestions that remain to be improved (Simpler, more transparent, User-friendly Balancing of the FSS being one of them).
Perhaps some topics/suggestions could be allocated a voting poll to give the PEXA team an idea of others agreeance or urgency in where to direct efforts and response next
