Job Costs from Instant Purchases


Starting with version 3.8, Goldenseal fills the Job Class, Job and Category fields in a bank check or bank payment, whenever you create an "instant purchase".

How to Use

You don't need to do anything special. Whenever you enter a Material Purchase, Subcontractor Cost or Other Cost, and use cash, check or credit card as a payment method, Goldenseal will automatically fill job cost info into the bank payment.

Technical Details

Goldenseal does not actually use the job cost fields from the bank payment-- for job cost reports, it goes back to the original expense transaction, since that has more complete information. However it is still convenient to be able to see the job information in the check itself!
