How to I make line items my chart of accounts inactive, I heard delete them but am so afraid to try that

Hey there, rustysalqb.

 

Thanks for contacting the Community for support. I can show you how to make a line item in the Chart of Accounts inactive.

 

Don't be afraid, you're on the right track. "Deleting" an account in the chart will make it inactive. Once an account has been deleted, the transactions will not be erased and you can restore it at any time.

 

There are just a few steps to make an account inactive. Here's how:

 

1. Click the Gear icon in the top right corner.

2. Choose Chart of Accounts.

3. Select the account you'd like to delete.

4. Click the drop-down arrow under Action and choose Delete.

5. You'll be asked if you're sure. Click Yes.
