Working with Classifications

It is useful to categorize or classify sets of data within your business. Example includes:

  • Classify your Customers as Gold, Silver or Bronze depending on the amount they have purchased over a period of time.
  • Classify Leads in terms of their postal district.
  • Classify Sales Invoices by department or region.
  • Classify Service Items by type of internal non-billable activity.

Up to three Classification Types can be assigned per Document.

Classifications can be used within the Advanced Search tab of Lists and the Report Filters.

If you do not use classification simply ignore the Classification tab on all Documents.

How to set up Classification Types

See Configuring Classification Types for details.

How to assign Classifications to a Document

After Classification Types has been set up, they can be assigned to any Document with the Classification tab.

Below a Customer is classified as Gold and from the London district.

How to use the Inheritance of Classification Types

If a Transactional Document is created from a Customer, such as a Sales Invoice, the Invoice automatically inherits the classifications assigned to the Customer. As per the example, the Sales Invoice would be classified as Gold and from London.

Although Transactional Documents inherit Classification Types, they can be re-assigned.
