Expenses work similar to time entries. You can create an expenses item to keep track of any miscellaneous expenses you would like to add to a client's account. This could include software fees, shipping costs etc.

To create a new expense:

  • Go to Billing.

  • Click on Expense. It will open to the Expenses table. This table allows you to quickly view all your expenses in one spot. You can easily filter each column by selecting the arrow next to the category and applying the condition.

  • Click add expense (this table is the only place to add a new expense). You will notice there are blue asterisks next to a few categories. These are required fields and include the date, expense number, client name and amount. The other fields are not required but are recommended.

  • Start by adding a date.

  • Note that the expense number is auto calculated so you can’t change this number.

  • Add the Client with the dropdown

  • Add note to describe the expense - ex. Fedex shipping

  • You can add a team member who is associated with this expense.

  • Use the toggle to Mark this item as billable or not.

  • Click Save.

Your new expense will populate on your expense list.

  • View an expense by clicking on the expense number.
