    In the future or Going forward

    Hello,

    I was wondering what the difference is between:

    From now on,
    In the future,
    Going forward,
    Hereinafter, Henceforth,

    The phrase was written like this by a collegue (French speaking) :

    Going forward, purchase orders will no longer show “Contact Branch”, rather they will show the actual contact information of the person who created or modified the PO. This enhancement will provide vendors the correct contact information and avoid wasting time trying to get to the proper contact.

    I have changed it to this... :
    "In the future", most supplier purchase orders will display the contact information of the buyer who created or modified it. This change will help suppliers to contact the person who created the PO.


    I'm not sure whether I should use "going forward" or 'in the future".

    Thanks for any help you can give me...

    Patricia...

    Use "In future". Keep it simple.

    Re: In the future or Going forward

    Either "going forward" or "in the future" is OK. Note AmE uses "the" in this expression.
