Why can't I post an expense to the account "uncategorized expense"?
Accountants and bookkeepers often use the Uncategorized Expense account when they need more information from a client about one or more expenses in order to assign them to the right accounts. Sometimes there are just a few uncategorized expenses while we've also seen clients with dozens or even hundreds (especially in a clean up situation). We built an app called Uncat on the QuickBooks App Store to help us get descriptions and receipts for expenses back from clients without having to export and email spreadsheets of uncategorized expenses back and forth. We hope it's useful to other bookkeepers and accountants.
