Classes are used to financially categorize your transactions. Classes created in your PSA can be auto-set to map to your CRM accounts so that when an invoice is generated for that account the classes are auto-selected for the invoice and its line items. Invoices can be searched using the class name in Finance > Invoices. These classes enable you to track account balances by department, business office or location, separate properties, or by any other meaningful breakdown of your business.
Create the class list in PSA
The Class List page maintains a multi-level list of class names. Classes provide an alternate way of classifying income and expenses from the chart of accounts. For example, you could classify income and expenses by department, location, property, project, or event. Once created and assigned to transactions, you can filter reports by class.
