Are there optional fields that I can add to layouts (or remove if I don't want them)?
You can also remove many of the fields on Goldenseal data screens, if they don't apply to your business.
Adding Optional Fields
To add an optional field to any record in the Goldenseal accounting software, follow these steps:
Some optional fields are calculated-- you won't be able to enter data into them.
If there isn't already an optional field for the information you'd like to store, you can add a custom field.
Removing Optional Fields
In Account, List and Transaction layouts, most fields are required, but some fields can be removed from the layout if you don't need them.
HINT-- Before you remove fields, make a backup copy of your file. That way you can go back if you regret making the change!
To remove a field, follow these steps:
HINT-- If you remove a field from the layout, the data in that field will still be stored in each record. You just won't see it on the screen.
Using Short Forms
Some Goldenseal records include both a long form and a short form. You can switch between the forms with the Form button at the lower left corner of the window.
You may want to add optional fields to the long form, and keep the short form simpler.
To switch between the two layouts in the Custom Layouts area, click on the Form Type button at the upper left corner of the window.
Starting with Goldenseal accounting software version 2.9 there are extra info windows where you can move fields from the main layouts, to reduce clutter.
