Classes in Rise Accounting are another way to categorise and group transactions, which may later be used in reporting. They may be applied to Quotes, Sales orders, Tax invoices, Credit notes, Projects, Time tracking entries, Purchase orders, Supplier invoices, Shipments, Manufacturing builds, and Supplier returns. They may be applied on a document level or may be used on a line by line basis. To apply a class, choose it from the drop-down menu. Some examples of ways classes can be used to group transactions:

Units of Measure Sets (UoM)

Advanced Units of Measure functionality allows you to maintain control over inventory while carrying out your daily business in a way that reflects your buying and selling practices. You can buy an inventory item in a case, and sell the inventory item individually while keeping the inventory quantities accurate. The system handles the conversion and keeps the inventory updated for you.

A Units of measure set groups units of measure together and defines the conversion between these units. The Units of measure set is then applied to one or more inventory items. Once applied, you can specify the default purchasing unit and selling unit, which will be pre-filled in purchase orders and tax invoices.

Creating Unit of Measures Sets

To create a unit of measures set:

  1. Go to Lists and Settings.

Units of Measure Tips and Tricks

The factor may be a decimal. Use a set on multiple items (be sure to name it generically so it is easily understood what the set contains).

Use the smallest unit of measure as the base, in most cases.

Be careful not to change the related units on the set or factors to ensure accurate inventory.

In documents that give quantity, the unit is always the base unit.

In inventory adjustments, the quantity is in the base unit of measure.

Setting up Document Numbering

Numbering allows virtually any customized invoice numbering scheme.

For example, valid numbering schemes can be:

  • A combination of alphanumeric (SF-001-IA)

In addition, the characters can be in any order. If a number is used anywhere in the scheme, it will be incremented each time you create a new document. For example, SF-001-IA will become SF-002-IA, SF-003-IA, etc. and 5000 will become 5001, 5002 and so on. Schemes that consist of only letters will not change upon creating new documents.

Note: If you were previously using numbers and wish to continue from the last used number, enter the last document number from your old system. The system will automatically create new documents with the next number for you. For example, entering SF-756 will result in the next number being SF-757.
