Add Expense Categories
« on: September 01, 2018, 11:13:29 am »
Comment: worked hard for a over a month to get this software.  (Short story if you're interested: Macbook Pro Owner, Mac MyCostPro won't be available until the end of this year - beginning of next.  Analyzed and agonized to purchase a PC laptop, made the decision to go for it, ordered the laptop, purchased Office 2016, bought MyCostPro) - LOVE IT, y'all are GENIUS!!! 

Question: is there a way to add to the expense categories?  Some of the ones my CPA wants are Subscriptions (ie: MyCostPro, MileIQ, ebay Store); Services (ie: CPA, Internet, Appraisals); Software (Office 2016), Equipment (Laptop, Printer, Monitor)

Thank you for the very high praise! 

You can make your own categories and items within them, check video #3 on this page.

If you want to skip right to it, it is around the 3:15 mark in the video (tutorial #3)

Thanks Scott, the video discusses how to change the existing categories, but it doesn't go into detail on how to add categories.  Any thoughts on if this is possible?  I would like to use the existing categories in addition to new ones mentioned above.

Many thanks,

Scott

It was capped (without changing a few formulas around), so I added 6 more category fields which I hope you will find useful!

The new version is ready for everyone to download as of NOW...  https://mycostpro.com/download

Just fill in the names on the shaded box to the left, and then add the sub category descriptions under the appropriate box to the right.
