How can I make inactive vendor to active again?

Hi there, youngshc.


Making your vendor active again is pretty easy. Let me show you the steps:

  1. On the left panel, click Expenses
  2. Click the Vendors tab.
  3. Click the Gear icon above the Action column. 
  4. Check the Include Inactive box under Other.
  5. Type the vendor's name in the search box. Note: You will know if the vendor is inactive when the (deleted) word is next to the vendor's name.
  6. Click the vendor's name to open, and then click the Make Active button.

That's it! your vendor is now active.
