Re: Hi, can I erase a category or a subcategory?

Hello corcafe,


Let me provide you some information and help you erase a category or subcategory.


If you're referring to deleting a product category, here are the steps:

  1. Click Gear. Then, All Lists.
  2. Click Product Categories under Products and Services.
  3. Select the category or subcategory you want to delete, then click the Edit drop-down.
  4. Click Remove.

If you're referring to your account category, deleting it isn't possible. However, you can make it inactive. Here's how:

  1. Click Accounting. Then, Chart of Accounts.
  2. Click the account name. Then, click the View register or Run report drop-down.
  3. Click Make inactive. Then, click Yes when prompted.

Please see attached screenshots below.


Once done, check your categories again.


Also, you can visit our page about banking and bank feeds for some help articles for your future tasks.


Get back to me if you have other concerns. I'll be around to help.
