Can you reactivate an inactive vendor?

I think in the desktop version, you could always ask the list to show both active and inactive vendors. Sadly I now noticed that ALL transactions for the inactivated vendor are gone. Please help - this is connected to e-filing my 1099s so I need help asap. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for asking this, sparctina.

 

Yes, you definitely can. I'd love to show you how to reactivate your vendors by following the steps below:

  1. Go to Expenses and choose Vendor.
  2. Click the Settings icon and check the box for Include inactive.
  3. Locate the inactive vendor and click the link beside it that says Make active.

Also, inactivating a vendor won't delete the previous transaction under it. If the transactions were missing, you can check the Audit Log to track if there are changes made in your account.

 

To do that:

  1. Go to the Gear icon and select Audit Log.
  2. Select Filter.
  3. Use the fields on the Filter panel to choose the appropriate UserDate, or Events filter to narrow the results.
  4. Click Apply.
